PRE RELEASE + AUTOGRAPHED CD FOCUS 9/NEW SKIN
        
Soon the new album of Focus will be released. The band is very excited about the new songs and can’t hardly wait to surprise the fans with this new material.  

After an initial careful comeback which resulted in a well received album “Focus 8”, the band are now back on the frontline, with a fantastic line-up!
Of course the founder member and musical genius Thijs van Leer is still holding the fort. Also back in his old spot is Pierre van der Linden, the drummer who is internationally renowned for his rhythmic skills, and who was a defining factor in the whole Focus sound. Together with Bobby Jacobs who stems from a well acclaimed Dutch jazz family, they are responsible for the rhythm section and that unmistakable Focus groove. The talented Niels van der Steenhoven, who without any shadow of a doubt can hit the mark when it comes to the guitar completes the band’s line-up.

A new Focus era has arrived. There is a rejuvenated passion in the new compositions, that adorn the new album “New Skin”, which gets a worldwide release in September 2006. During the concert loyal fans will hear once again all the classic Focus tunes and they will be surprised at the strength and depth of the new material. “Our music is evolution, not revolution”, Thijs van Leer once said about the music of Focus. Well now, the evolution is at full pace.

Thijs van Leer – Hammond-orgel, flute & vocals
Niels van der Steenhoven – guitar
Bobby Jacobs – bass
Pierre van der Linden - drums

With the new album Focus 9/New Skin the band proves that this new line-up sounds better then ever and establishes once and for all that Focus is alive and kicking.
    

To strengthen the bonds with the fans, Focus offers a very limited number of fans the oppertunity to order a pre-release and  autographed cd. which as yet will be released in the Benelux
