Daryl Stuermer Ready To Release Go! This Fall

World of Genesis.com was the first to tell you about a year back that Daryl was working on a progressive influenced album, and we now have the details from his official site. The album, Go!, will be released on Inside Out Music (GMBH), which is distributed by RYKO. Stuermer's press release says, "Stuermer's latest recording as a solo artist combines aspects of his own musical past, from the aggressive abandon that marked his fiery fretboard work in the '70s with Ponty to the more accessible, melodic writing that
defined Phil Collins' pop hits through the '80s and '90s. The record is
Rock-Fusion (heavy on the Rock) and will thrill old fans and hasten the
creation of new ones."

The album will be released worldwide in the fall of 2006.
