Consider The Source Release Free Album, Announce Spring Tour

Consider the Source

Sci-Fi Middle Eastern Fusion band Consider the Source is celebrating their 10th anniversary in style this year. The band, who have just returned from a two-week trek of India, are releasing a free compilation album spanning their career. Past is Prologue: 2005-2015 includes tracks from each of their studio albums as well as a bonus from their early years.

The group, anchored by bass phenom John Ferrara, have also announced a three-month Spring tour. Kicking off in Albany, New York on February 19th, Consider the Source will weave their way down the East Coast, through the South, up the Midwest, and then back East to wrap up in Massachusetts in May.

“We’re celebrating 10 years of CTS by giving away a FREE compilation album spanning the history of our career, from our beginning as an occasional jam between friends, to a serious band with the momentum it currently has,” they shared. “It includes cuts from all of our studio albums including a Bonus Track from our Untitled EP released in 2005. We hope you enjoy and be sure to check the tour dates below to see when we’re coming to you’re area!!!”
