Happy New Year!

2015 has been a come back year for us. After many years of preparations and an extended recording process we finally released our 6th studio album “Until All The Ghosts Are Gone” in April and it’s with great joy and satisfaction that we can conclude that the hard work has paid off.

As we hadn’t released an album in 8 years we were unsure if there was still an audience out there for us and we’re really stoked by all the positive feedback.

Now the year is drawing to a close and the album has made it to many best of 2015 lists. We’ve been keeping an eye on two of them closely as they are lists where fans and casual listeners can give their vote.

On Progarchives the album has received 381 ratings (43% 5 stars) which made the album rank as no 2 of all the prog rock-releases of 2015, only beaten by Steven Wilson’s “Hand.Cannot.Erase”(!)

On Rate Your Music ”Until All The Ghosts Are Gone” has received 419 ratings and we are for the first time one of the year’s top 100 releases. Our current position of 74 may seem modest compared to the 2nd place on the Progarchives list, but as this is a list comprising of all genres of music it more or less equals it.

With our new member Marty Willson-Piper onboard we’re looking forward to the next year with confidence.

Here’s to a great 2016! Cheers & thank You for all your support!

News in the shop

We are working on getting as much as possible of our back catalogue available again on vinyl and we received the LP-edition of Vemod this week. This means that we currently have “Vemod”, “Nucleus”, “Waking The Dead” and “Until All The Ghosts Are Gone” in stock. Some stocks are running low, but on the other hand there’s other titles in the pipeline.

Apart from the ordinary CD-editions of our studio albums the Japanese edition of “Until All The Ghosts Are Gone”, which includes a bonus disc with alternative mixes of some of the songs, is also available from the store.

Speaking of Japan, we really look forward to the upcoming gig with Änglagård at Takeshiba New Pier Hall, Tokyo, on November 8! More live dates for 2016 to be announced.

Keep rockin’!

Marty Willson-Piper, 2nd batch of vinyl and gig announcement

We’re very happy to announce that guitarist Marty Willson-Piper is rehearsing and learning our songs, primarily for our show at Burg Herzberg Festival in Germany next Thursday, but also for later.

Marty is best known for his tenure as a lead guitarist and singer/songwriter with the church, All About Eve and The Saints and he has also released several solo albums. He guests on the title track on our new album and he is now also sharing guitar duties with Nicklas on stage.

The first 1000 copies of the ‘Until All The Ghosts Are Gone’ vinyl is now sold out. The second pressing includes a download card instead of a CD and it is this version that is now available in the Store.

On November 8 we will do a co-headlining show with our friends Änglagård in Tokyo at Takeshiba New Pier Hall.
