InsideOutMusic/Sony Music have announced the signing of progressive rock legends Jethro Tull to the label.  The band has already completed a new album titled The Zealot Gene, which can be expected in early 2022. Tull joins other classic prog bands on the label including Kansas, recent addition Yes (previously on the Frontiers music label), and relatively newer groups like Dream Theatre and Frost*.
 
Ian Anderson had this to say about the new signing – “After 54 years in the world of music recording, it is with great pleasure that I now sign Jethro Tull to a record company which reminds me, in many ways, of the old Chrysalis label – both as an independent and in its later years in partnership with EMI. Here are real music guys with a passion for the best and most creative in rock music. We look forward to a long and fruitful relationship and more releases to come.”
 
InsideOutMusic Label Manager Thomas Waber states, “Adding Jethro Tull to the roster is an incredible honor for us. The band are true innovators of the genre and we are looking forward to working with them on their new album. We are sure their countless fans will be as excited about it as we are!”
The band currently consists of:
Ian Anderson – Flute, acoustic guitar, harmonica, vocals
Joe Parrish-James – Guitar
Florian Opahle – Guitar (album only)
Scott Hammond – Drums.
John O’Hara – Piano, keyboards and accordion
David Goodier – Bass guitar
