THRESHOLD – NEW ALBUM IN NOVEMBER …DETAILS REVEALED …

The new album from British progsters THRESHOLD is called “Dividing Lines” and is set for release on November 18th via Nuclear Blast.


The band states : “A collection of cautionary tales, Dividing Lines is best described as ‘Legends’ darker, moodier older brother'” ……..

and here’s a bite of it…..

Richard West comments on the song: “”Silenced is about how we seem to be heading towards less voices, less artists, less venues, less platforms where everyone can be heard. People seem so scared to speak out or debate anything anymore. I know I sound old but I miss the good old days! When freedom of speech goes then society is lost.””

Watch this space at 2pm BST / 3pm CST for another surprise we have in store for today!

VALENTINE: RELEASES SECOND SINGLE FROM UPCOMING ‘DEMOS FROM THE ATTIC’ ALBUM

New York City cult AOR heroes VALENTINE have released their new single, “Heart of the City” as a precursor to their upcoming Demos From the Attic collection, which is scheduled for the end of July through 20th Century Music / Vanity Music Group.  

Recorded in the early 90’s and intended to be included on the follow up to their Giant Records debut, the single, along with a plethora of other demos were stored away, seemingly forever until 20th Century kept approaching them about “any released material they may have.”  Persistence pays off.  Both guitarist, Adam Holland and bassist, Gerard Zappa suddenly remembered that they actually did have unreleased demos stored away in attics.  

Adam Holland states “We all feel very good about it. It turns out we found gems instead of skeletons! We are proud of all of the many chapters of this band’s life as both Valentine and Open Skyz. This is Valentine’s second album if it would have come out in the 80s. It would have been an awesome sophomore album and it’s pretty cool to listen to these now. The whole process has been a lot of fun.”

Guests on Band Forever thus far include: 

Gerard Zappa and Craig Pullman of Valentine
Joey Cassata of Zo2 and Zrock 
Keith Douglass of Tora Tora
Reggie Wu of Heaven’s Edge
Michael Staertow of Lou Gramm / Slaughter
Rob Hoffman of In The Pink and manager of Extreme and Ratt
