Asia was formed in 1981 when Geoff Downes, John Wetton, Steve Howe, and Carl Palmer came together to form their own band as the bands they’d previously worked with began to disintegrate. Originally coming from legendary progressive rock bands such as Roxy Music, King Crimson, Yes, and Emerson, Lake & Palmer, the founding members brought their talents together to create Asia.
Working closely with David Geffen, Asia found a new set of fans that were more associated with the album-rock sounds of such bands as Styx and Journey. Asia released the albums Asia, Alpha, and Astra in the 1980’s, all to surprising commercial success, bringing audiences the hits “Heat of the Moment,” “Don’t Cry,” and “The Smile Has Left Your Eyes.” Astra was the least success of the three, however, and by 1985 Asia had dissolved.
The band reunited in 1990, and found surprising success with a number of additional albums in the 1990’s and beyond: Then & Now (1990), Aqua (1992), Aria (1994), Arena (1996), Rare (1999), Aura (2001), Silent Nation (2004), Phoenix (2008), and Omega (2010.) Asia toured heavily in 2009 alongside the current lineup of the band Yes, and performed songs like “An Extraordinary Life” and a number of songs from King Crimson and Emerson, Lake & Palmer.
Asia continues to perform and record with the current lineup of Geoff Downes, Carl Palmer, Sam Coulson, and Billy Sherwood. The band most recently released the albums XXX (2012) and Gravitas (2014.)
