Toto, the California band best known for rock epic “Africa” and the preceding “Hold the Line,” is making their return this March with a new studio album, self-referentially titled TOTO XIV.
It will be somewhat of a reunited affair. Since their last album, 2006’s Falling In Between, the band has reunited with vocalist Joseph Williams and founding member Steve Pocaro, and they’ll be joined by original bassist David Hungate—who hasn’t been with them for 30 years—when they tour behind their new album this year.
“This is opposite of going through the motions,” Porcaro said in a video announcement of the album. “We are treating this like it is Toto V, our follow-up to 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.”
