I searched google for The Inconsolable Secret, and only found one GH-related result:

Use this thread as a clearinghouse for press and other things related to the album =)

Ok this is how a German Cd delivery presents the Inconsolable Secret:


America’s greatest progressive rock band is back with a jawdropping DOUBLE ALBUM of epic proportions. A package that literally redefines the entire concept of “epic.” Back with the beautiful pipe organs, the melodic Moogs and Mellotrons. Back with a huge, fantastically intriguing story that even tops the one told on their masterpiece album, Lex Rex. Back with a full orchestra and amazing choir. Back with the classic Glass Hammer line-up, including Matt Mendians on drums, Susie Bogdanowicz and Walter Moore on vocals, and progressive rock icons Steve Babb and Fred Schendel on ... well, practically everything else. This elaborate, enhanced double CD Digipak features the amazing artwork of legendary artist Roger Dean, along with a generous portion of added-value bonus materials, including Roger Dean computer desktop art, a video of the band in the studio, complete lyrics in PDF format, and more.

There are around 100 copies going out to prog radio, prog websites, magazines and reviewers today. Plus, we're making the trip to NEARfest in hopes that the word will spread from there. There are ads placed in several magazines too. Those should show up over the next 2-3 months.
How else might we get the word out?

The first one up there somwhere you can find under www.justforkicks.de then give Glass Hammer as search word.

Here´s another one I found on a swedisch page I think this is a bit of funny. The page is www.tolkiensarda.se/new/ngh0505.php
And this is a very free translation of the text:

The Englisch old progband Glass Hammer that have made albums like Journey Of The Dunedan and The Middle Earth Album are now going to release a new album. The Inconsolable Secret, a double album, and the group tells it´s a step away from progrock. Prog have been replaced with Celtic music and more Symphonic Rock. The title comes from an epic poem from leadsinger (????) Steve Babb but he says it´s inspired by Tolkien´s "The Lays Of Beleriond"


So mayor if you want me to answer them and put a few tings right just tell me. It´s my mother language anyhow.
And when you want to find pages like this don´t use google.com use google.de or google.se or so and then click on pages from this country.

If we're accepted as icons now, then I'm pushing for legends next. 8)
