Interest continues to grow over a forthcoming album playing tribute to Pink Floyd's The Wall. Amongst the artists on "Back Against the Wall" are Jethro Tull's Ian Anderson, the Doors' Robby Krieger, Yes' Rick Wakeman, Chris Squire and Steve Howe. The full list of participants can be found on our May 30th news story.

Billy Sherwood is producing the tribute to Roger Waters' 1979 masterpiece, for Cleopatra Records, which has now got a firm release date of September 27th.

Billy told us recently: "It is coming along quite nicely and I should be mixing it very soon. I'm a long-time huge fan of Pink Floyd and especially The Wall. I have been working very hard to keep the over all integrity extremely high, as did everyone who played on it. I hope you like it!"

"All the artists involved poured their hearts and soul into this body of work and it shows," Sherwood said. "It is with the utmost respect to Pink Floyd that we took the challenge."

As we get more information on this project, we will let you know. There's a lot of interest in it, not least because of the big names involved, elevating it from other tribute albums out there.
