New York, NY (Top40 Charts) KANSAS, America's legendary progressive rock band, has released a new song and music video for their song Throwing Mountains taken from the band's highly anticipated new studio album, The Absence of Presence, out June 26, 2020 through Inside Out Music.
'Throwing Mountains' might be one of the heaviest songs KANSAS has ever recorded," comments KANSAS guitarist Zak Rizvi, "At over six minutes long, I like to consider it a bit of a KANSAS mini-epic." Rizvi wrote the music for the song with lyrics by KANSAS keyboardist Tom Brislin and drummer Phil Ehart.

Brislin says, "It's very straight forward, 'get your confidence going, take on any obstacle, conquer the world' song. It's pretty timely in the world, today.'
"The song is so much fun to play," adds KANSAS bassist Billy Greer. "The riff is like 'Thunder of the Gods' but dynamic at the same time."
"We are really excited for our fans to be able to get a taste of what is to come from The Absence of Presence," says KANSAS lead vocalist Ronnie Platt. "I think people will really be surprised by the album. The Absence of Presence shows the band firing on all cylinders."

The Absence of Presencefollows-up 2016's The Prelude Implicit, which debuted at #14 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart. KANSAS has sold more than 30 million albums worldwide, and is famous for classic hits such as Carry On Wayward Son and Dust in the Wind to the progressive epic Song for America.'

The Absence of Presence,released by Inside Out Music, features nine all new tracks written by the band, produced by Zak Rizvi, and co-produced by Phil Ehart and Richard Williams.
