Band History

January '11 - February '11   /  Album Sessions Further album sessions
February '11   /  Pre-Album Mix Dave does a pre-album release mix of 'Let Your Glory Fall' for the compilation album CPR4 (Christian Progressive Rock 4) which is due for release in May.
March '11   /  Another Realm Pre-Orders Pre-orders for the new studio album 'Another Realm' start to be taken and the album running order is announced along with the fact that it will be the band's first 2 cd studio album, with approximately 95 minutes on new music! Dave mixes the new album at his Open Sky studio during March and April.
April '11   /  Netherlands Gigs / Artwork Complete After several days rehearsals at Frank's studio the band play 3 great gigs in The Netherlands, introducing more material from the new album. The gigs include a joint gig with popular Dutch band 'Trinity' and an appearance at the iO Pages 100th issue Anniversary Festival.

Tim Martindale completes the artwork for the new album, which includes a stunning 24 page booklet.

May '11   /  Album Mixing Complete Dave completes the album mix and the album is mastered on the Scottish Isle of Skye by Denis Blackham.

Four UK gigs see the band in fine form returning to venues / towns they've not played for many years to hugely appreciative audiences. Attendances are a bit disappointing but after so long with only the occasional UK gig, due to lack of a dedicated UK booking agent, the band realise that re-establishing themselves on the UK gig circuit will take a while. They are looking forward to working with new UK agent JJ to this end. The new tracks are going down really well, which is very encouraging. Supporting the band on all the current UK dates is brilliant singer songwriter Yvonne Lyon from Scotland and her husband DL.
