Toto Announce New Album, ‘Toto XIV,’ for March

Subscribe to Ultimate Classic Rock on

Toto will return March 24 with the band’s first studio album in nine years, titled ‘Toto XIV.’

Due out on Frontiers Records, the 11-track LP finds the band working with a rejiggered lineup that includes the return of former vocalist Joseph Williams, who rejoined in 2010, as well as founding member Steve Porcaro. For their 2015 tour, which includes an appearance at the Sweden Rock Festival alongside Judas Priest and Motley Crue, Toto will be joined by original bassist David Hungate, who re-entered the fold after a 30-year absence in 2014.

“This is opposite of going through the motions,” says Porcaro in the album’s electronic press kit (which you can watch above). “We are treating this like it is ‘Toto V,’ our follow-up to [1982’s] ‘Toto IV.’ We just want to be the best version of ourselves that we can be. Be true to ourselves and make the best music we can. Entertain people which is what we were put on this Earth for.”

“I think this is gonna surprise people, because it’s not a bunch of old guys phoning it in,” guitarist Steve Lukather told Ultimate Classic Rock last year. “We’re actually really digging deep, and it’s a complete huge, massive production. If you like what we do, you’re gonna love this record. I mean, we’re not going EDM or having rappers come in or doing duets of our old songs. It’s just fresh new music doing what we do. We’re not trying to be anything that we’re not, we’re just trying to be the best version of it and it’s powerful, it’s big. Huge vocals, massive harmonies, s— you just don’t hear anymore. Nobody does five-part harmonies anymore — not in rock ‘n’ roll.”

“It’s as though we never took a break from creating as Toto in the studio,” adds keyboardist David Paich. “For the fans who have been waiting patiently and continually showing the band support and love over the last decade or so, this one’s for you.”
