RAY ADLER Explains Why FATES WARNING Won’t Be Releasing Any New Albums

Fates Warning

FATES WARNING lead singer, Ray Alder, has reaffirmed that band guitarist Jim Matheos is not interested in producing any more albums. Despite this, Alder didn’t dismiss the chances of future FATES WARNING shows, possibly including a tour.

In a recent Prog magazine interview, Alder discussed II, his latest solo release. The singer also addressed his decision to follow up on his first solo album What The Water Wants, which was launched in 2019.

He stated: “If FATES WARNING is no longer going to release material then I need an outlet. I don’t want to join another band, so a solo career seems the most logical thing to do.”

When asked about the band’s resolution to stop releasing new music, Ray responded: “Jim [Matheos] says he doesn’t want to write any more new music for the band. That could change, I don’t know, you’d have to talk to him. It’s not to say there won’t be any more live shows. The band didn’t break up. It’s just that there won’t be any more new music. And I need an outlet; music has been my life for over thirty years.”

FATES WARNING‘s thirteenth and final studio album, Long Day Good Night, was released in November 2020 via Metal Blade Records.
