We are excited to announce our appearance at Progtoberfest October 26, 2014 at Reggies in Chicago. The festival runs Saturday, October 25th and through Sunday, October 26th with two stages of bands each day.

Itís worth the drive from anywhere in the Midwest to hear such a great collection of bands (even modestly priced airfare is money well-spent)!

"Off the Floor 02" is officially released today! Click here for all the details and here for purchasing options. In the local Detroit area visit Dearborn Music (more local stores coming soon...).

Chris checks in: "Well..., I have to say it's nice to get the "Off the Floor" project fully completed and released. It took a little longer than expected, but it was a lot of fun and we are excited to finally have a collection of live performances properly mixed and in our catalog. Between "Off the Floor 01" and "Off the Floor 02" thereís almost 3-hours of live music Ė so it was no casual undertaking! I think these CDs offer our fans something more than a carbon copy of the studio versions since we like to stretch out the original arrangements in some places. Itís almost like we revert to how the songs began when we first took them into the studio...

Now it's time to get out and do some shows this summer and fall - and finish our long-overdue 6th studio album!"

We are pleased to announce pre-orders are available for the June 3, 2014 release of "Off the Floor 02 (Limited Edition)" on the Tiles Merchandise page.

"The second installment of Tiles' 20th Anniversary celebration, "Off the Floor 02" continues with more live-in-the-studio performances of staples from the band's live sets. Taken from the same sessions as "Off the Floor (01)," the track list draws from each of the band's five studio albums. For this 2-disc Limited Edition version, Tiles dug into their archives and dusted off a few tunes from their appearance at the 2005 Rites of Spring Festival. These songs are not reprised on either "Off the Floor" disc - and features the only recorded full performance of the epic "Window Dressing." Also included are two bonus videos from the "Off the Floor" sessions."

For our friends in the UK visit Burning Shed for some great pre-order options - and German fans can check out Just for Kicks Music for special promotions.

**SPECIAL OPPORTUNITY** for our hometown fans!! Visit Dearborn Music and get "Off the Floor 02" NOW..., while their pre-release supply lasts (in-store only). They've also got some signed (and unsigned) posters free with purchase (while supplies last). Plus the entire Tiles back catalog is 20% off.

Chris and Jeff (and Chrisí daughter Gabrielle) caught up with Dream Theater during the bandís recent stop in Detroit. Itís always nice of the guys to let us drop by and catch up a little bit. John Petrucci even arranged for Gabrielle to get a "family photo" and meet her keyboard hero (Jordan, of course!). The band put together a great set (Space Dye Vest!) including a big chunk of "Scenes from a Memory" which, well..., brought back memories of our tour together. Especially cool was the elaborate staging and visuals that brought Hugh Symeís CD artwork to life Ė simply a great presentation, donít miss this tour! (And donít miss Jordanís excellent new symphonic CD!

We are extremely pleased to announce that legendary JETHRO TULL frontman Ian Anderson will make a special guest appearance on our upcoming studio album, "Other Arrangements."

Chris provides a little background:
"Ian has been a Tiles fan since way back in 1999 when we released Presents Of Mind. Over the years we floated the idea of him making a guest appearance and eventually the timing was right. He was just finishing up mixing his new solo album Homo Erraticus and had a window of opportunity before he dove into tour rehearsals and promotional stuff. We sent Ian a moody atmospheric tune and he wove some cool melodies in between vocal phrases; then cuts loose with his trademark flute improvising during the song's long rideout solo. I think I listened to it twenty times to make sure it really happened - what a thrill for us and what a generous gesture from an icon of progressive rock!"
