...their album 'Phoenix' to be released in the UK on January 28th 2008.
System 7's new project is inspired by the manga graphic novel series 'Phoenix' by Tezuka Osamu - one of the founding fathers of Japanese manga culture. The project grew from a meeting a few years ago between System 7's Steve Hillage and Miquette Giraudy and Tezuka's daughter Rumiko Tezuka who has her own techno label Music Robita in Japan. Rumiko suggested that System 7's sound would fit perfectly with her father's Phoenix stories and his universal message. The resulting album release is a collaboration between Music Robita and System 7's own label A-Wave.
