NEWS: Threshold

The long-running progressive metal act Threshold (U.K.) recently made several important announcements that are of interest to the supporters of the band and to traditional/melodic prog fans in general.
The first major piece of information deals with a change in singer. The longtime singer Damian Wilson is no longer in the band, and that concludes his third stint in the band. Rather than bring in a totally new singer into the fold, the band has recruited returning vocalist Glynn Morgan, who sang on the band’s 1994 studio album Psychedelicatessen and 1995’s live album Livedelica. The new line-up is pictured above.
Glynn Morgan commented: "I was over the moon when I got the phone call. To work with Karl and Richard and be a part of the mighty THRESHOLD story once more is a great honour. I can't wait to start recording, the new material has me hooked already."
The band has also announced that the new album will be called Legends of the Shires. It will be the band’s eleventh studio album. They say that they are finishing up the new work, the band’s first double album, and that it will be available later on this year.
In addition, later this year they will be doing a tour in Europe for the new album and Glynn Morgan, of course, will do vocals, but he will also play guitar. Here is the information about the tour.
