Toto announced earlier this month that their first studio album in 10 years, Toto XIV will be released on March 24th, 2015. The album will be available in multiple formats, including a deluxe CD/DVD package and a two-LP vinyl set. It is available for preorder now.
According to keyboardist Steve Porcaro: “This is opposite of going through the motions. We are treating this like it is Toto V.“
The album also features the return of founding bassist David Hungate.
Drums were performed by Keith Carlock whose commitments to Steely Dan prohibit him from participating in the Toto 2015 World Tour. Toto plans a North American trek in the summer of 2015. I would like to see them perform live. I trust they have a Connecticut tour stop planned.
