YES also recently released the music video for first single “We Can Fly”. The video was directed by award-winning filmmaker Ken Horn (BAFTA- and Emmy-Award winner for the BBC series “The Street”) and features a guest appearance by Trevor Horn. The video builds upon the existential aeronautic theme developed in the song’s lyrics. You can watch it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKJwXLCnBKs
The band recently kicked off their summer tour on July 4th in Philadelphia. In support of Fly From Here, YES will be performing new music as well as hits from their hugely successful and indelible catalogue of music. The 22-city tour ends August 3rd in Mountain View, CA.
YES is Benoit David on vocals (his first studio recording with YES), Steve Howe on guitars/vocals, founder Chris Squire on bass/vocals, Geoff Downes on keyboards and Alan White on drums. First formed in 1968, YES’ remarkable career spans over 40 years and the band has time and again redefined the boundaries of rock music. YES has sold nearly 50 million albums worldwide and continues to stretch the boundaries of progressive art-rock with their symphonic use of sound and innovative musical styles.

Nowadays, it's becoming increasingly hard to find rock bands that refuse to be pigeonholed to a single style. But the Stick People are certainly an exception, as they manage to fuse together elements of hard rock, alternative rock, and punk rock – as evidence by their full-length debut, 'Madness.'
Also, the album's first video, "Think About That," can be viewed on YouTube, or by following this link:
There's a reason why the Stick People are so adept at touching upon a variety of styles - its members are rock music veterans, having learned their skills playing with quite a few renowned names.
And the Stick People themselves are confident they have a winner on their hands with 'Madness.' "We're excited for the release of 'Madness,' says Duffy. "It's been many months in the making and we hope our fans like it as much as we do!" And while the group just came off the road (two solid months of touring from Milwaukee to Houston), the Stick People will be back touring from August to October, so stay tuned for details.
