PRESTO BALLET, the project led by METAL CHURCH guitarist Kurdt Vanderhoof, will release its second album, "The Lost Art of Time Travel", on February 22, 2008 via Inside Out Music. The follow-up to 2005's "Peace among the Ruins" will include the following tracks: "The Mind Machine", "Thieves", "I'm Not Blind", "One Tragedy at a Time", "You Are Here", "Easy Tomorrow" and "That You're Alive".PRESTO BALLET features Vanderhoof alongside Scott Albright (lead vocals, acoustic guitar), Brian Cokeley (piano, Hammond organ, synths, electric pianos, lead and backing vocals), Jeff Wade (drums and percussion) and Brian Lake (bass). PRESTO BALLET's music was previously described as "a mixture of first-class melodic and progressive rock with some heavy moments." All of the tracks on "Peace among the Ruins" were recorded using an analog tape machine, which was another nod to the sounds of the Seventies. Vanderhoof explained, "Digital recording techniques are annoying! For rock music it's absolutely fatal when you always rely on samples, sequencers and drum machines. It destroys the live feel of the music. WithPRESTO BALLET, it was our aim to return to a more 'natural' feel while keeping as melodic and musical as possible."
