VIDEO NEWS: Kansas Release Lyric Video For ‘Memories Down the Line’

Kansas have released a lyric video for their latest single Memories Down the Line, taken from their forthcoming album The Absence of Presence

“Memories Down the Line starts out as a piano-based rock ballad; it builds dynamically to a more powerful sound that still has a sense of longing to it,” comments keyboardist Tom Brislin. “Lyrically, I was intrigued by the concept of not only passing down one’s physical traits from generation to generation, but also the experiences that shape us. As with a number of coincidences occurring with this album, I had no idea we would be living through unforgettable times, when the song would be released.”

“We are living during a time when people are doing a lot of reflecting – reflecting on past memories, or the memories they are making right now,” adds lead vocalist Ronnie Platt. “Memories Down the Line really makes one consider the importance of sharing our experiences with those who come after us. I love the sincerity of the song.”
The Absence of Presence is due for release on 26th June via Inside Out Music and will be released on CD, double LP 180 gram vinyl, limited edition deluxe CD and 5.1 Blu-Ray artbook, and digital formats. Pre-orders are available HERE
