GPS is a progressive rock group formed in 2006 by John Payne, Guthrie Govan and Jay Schellen. These three had been working together in Asia, specifically on an album to have been called Architect of Time, when the fourth member of Asia, Geoff Downes, joined a reunion of the band's classic line-up, dissolving the then current line-up. Payne, Govan and Schellen announced the formation of a new band in February 2006 to be called One. However, after discovering another rock act with the same name, the band changed its name to GPS, from the initials of the three founders. The band released a 10-track album called Window to the Soul on InsideOut in August 2006 in Europe; the release in North America came the following September. The album had originally been announced as One with a May release date. All the tracks are credited to Payne/Schellen/Govan, and keyboards on the album and subsequent tour were played by Ryo Okumoto of Spock's Beard. The band performed live in September/October 2006 and on two Japanese dates in late 2007. It has since been announced that they have signed a three album deal with InsideOut Music, and are working on their next album Dreamscape that was expected to be released in 2011.
