THE TANGENT: Jonas Reingold Returns

Andy Tillison, of the UK based progressive rock outfit The Tangent, has recently issued an update via the band’s official Facebook group page, saying that Jonas Reingold (Karmakanic, The Flower Kings) is back to the band. The full update reads:

The Tangent are very happy indeed to announce that Jonas Reingold will return to the project for the forthcoming album “Le Sacre Du Travail”. Jonas, who is a founder member of The Tangent and has played on 4 studio and 2 live albums with the band in the past. For the majority of prog music fans he needs no introduction, the charismatic and acrobatic bass virtuoso from the Flower Kings and Karmakanik has established himself at the top of the prog virtuosos list over the past 15 years. Jonas’ return also heralds the first ever collaboration between himself and Gavin Harrison (drums) – a mouthwatering treat for rhythm section enthusiasts the world over. The recording project has been a lot of fun and Jonas has contributed all the bass to all the pieces – this is not a cameo appearance. His involvement with The Tangent does not affect his position with any other artists, Jonas has just returned home from a highly successful tour with The Flower Kings. During that tour all of us decided to keep his name a secret in order to keep the focus on those gigs. Tangent illuminatii will now realise that this new album features a very similar lineup to “Not As Good As The Book”. The Tangent Website ( has much more information and a new snippet where for the rest of today you can hear the new band with all personnel for the very first time. Jonas may well join us here, but at this precise moment he’s on a tourbus somewhere between Hamburg and Copenhagen. It is F***ing great to have him back.

The Tangent Lineup for this album is therefore: (in order of joining the LSDT project)
Andy Tillison (Po90 & Big Big Train collaborator) – Vocals, Electronic Guitars & Keyboards
Theo Travis (Steve Wilson Band, Soft Machine, Gong) – Saxes, Flutes & Clarinet
Jakko Jakszyk (King Crimson Projekt, Level 42, Kompendium etc) – Lead Guitar & Vocals
David Longdon (Big Big Train) Vocal Arrangements and Vocals
Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, Stickmen, King Crimson) – Drums
Jonas Reingold (The Flower Kings, Kaipa, Karmakanik) – Bass Guitar
With special guest Rikard Sjoblom (Beardfish, Gungfly, Bootcut) – Spoken Voice
