Fly Paper Tiles CD

 

With the return of original drummer Mark Evans, 2008's Fly Paper found Tiles embracing a renewed sense of experimentation to craft a streamlined collection of songs featuring the intricacies of progressive rock blended with deep rhythmic grooves and dense arrangements.
 
Producer Terry Brown (Rush) returned and delivered a vibrant vintage soundscape.
 
Hugh Syme's artwork captured the album's overall lyrical theme of human vulnerability with a simple-yet-disquieting image of a paper airplane floating over a city skyline
 
Fly Paper also featured an impressive roster of special guests including Alex Lifeson (Rush) on guitar, Alannah Myles on vocals; Kim Mitchell (Max Webster) on guitar; Hugh Syme on keyboards and orchestration; and Matthew Parmenter (Discipline) on keyboards and vocals.
 
Ian Anderson (Jethro Tull) praised Fly Paper as Tiles' best CD yet, "Sharp, precise vocals tell tales and set scenes - thundering drums and bass lines connect weaving melodies: strong stuff."
 
Signed by the band and producer Terry Brown.
