PRESTO BALLET released its latest album, “Invisible Places”, on February 4, 2011 via SAOL / H’Art / Zebralution.

PRESTO BALLET‘s current lineup consists of Vanderhoof, Munroe, keyboardist Kerry Shacklett and Ferkovich.

PRESTO BALLET‘s music was previously described as “highly reminiscent of ’70s prog rock, as the band was founded chiefly as a tribute to classic progressive bands such as YES and KANSAS.”
