The Crimson ProjeKCt:  The Crimson ProjeKCt launch 'Red' from forthcoming 'Live in Tokyo' release
The Crimson ProjeKCt, the King Crimson offshoot featuring 3 current members of that historic band, will release 'Live in Tokyo' through InsideOutMusic on the 3rd March 2014. With the tour set to begin soon as well, the band have revealed the classic 70's King Crimson track 'Red' taken from the live album which can be heard here:

The band had this to say:
"Red is one of the pre-80ies instrumentals that has remained an integral part of King Crimson's repertoire up until the early 2000s. Our interpretation of this classic piece is uniquely energetic and always 'on-the-edge', especially the double drumming from Pat and Tobias. Markus is doubling the main guitar part in a baritone register, which adds a subtle new pushing element to the song. The roar going through the audience when we start playing this is one of the highlights of our shows for us."

Featuring the talents of Adrian Belew, Tony Levin, Pat Mastelotto, Markus Reuter, Julie Slick and Tobias Ralph; The Crimson ProjeKCt primarily focus on repertoire from the early 1980s through to the mid-90s. The band has a "double trio" line-up, as made popular by Crimson between 1994 - 1997. The full track-listing for the CD & Digital release can be found below:
