The band’s new album, featuring new frontman/keyboardist Ronnie Platt, will be out on September 23.

“The title of the album, The Prelude Implicit, means without a doubt this is a new musical beginning for the band,” drummer Phil Ehart told Billboard. “This is the prelude, this is the beginning of a new musical expanse for us. The thing that Richard and I realized is: it’s the music, the Kansas music. If the band Kansas stops, then the music stops. Yeah, you can still listen to your CD and pop in a video or something, but it’s a great live band, and the fans are not only coming, but they’re coming more so now. We’re enjoying a real resurgence of sorts, so it’s something we want to continue.”
