Reunited King Crimson Release First New Music
The first new music from the reformed King Crimson line-up has appeared online, Classic Rock reports.

The DGM website recently unleashed a one minute fourteen second segment of the track "Venturing Unto Joy Pt. 1," recorded at rehearsal at Elstree Studios by four of the new seven man King Crimson line-up. Featured are Robert Fripp on guitar, Tony Levin on bass and drummers Bill Rieflin and Gavin Harrison.

On the site, DGM say: "Well, here we are. A bit of King Crimson 2014. One should always be wary of coming to judgement about anything based upon a clip that lasts less than a minute and a half but, but, but ... Taken from the rehearsals in Elstree Studios, this snippet has four of the seven-piece Crimso clearly enjoying themselves. There’s a wealth of back and forth interplay detail between Reiflin and Harrison and of course Levin and Fripp not only grab the lapels but go straight for the jugular. Oh, never mind about the rush to judgement: this is King Crimson and they're on fiery form!"

The clip prompted Prog writer and King Crimson biographer Sid Smith to state on Facebook: "Loving this excerpt of Crimso 2014 rearranging the paint work!"

King Crimson kick off their 2014 Us tour on September 9 with dates running through to October 6. No European or UK dates have been announced thus far.
