Steve (me), Fred and Jon have begun working on a new album. Alan is working on some parts for us too. Here we go!

Great! let's hope for a couple of Top 40 hits on this one, which means no songs over 4 minutes and no odd-time signatures. With this formula you should be opening for Bon Jovi by the summer in arenas worldwide.

very cool. wow great news.

i hadn't listened to "IF" for about a month and gave it a spin the other night while on the x-trainer... its so DARN good!! can you please tell randall that his playing on the album is so cool. it just gets better with each listen and for me having had a break from it, i was hearing new things, little fills here and there, amazing. please just pass on to him i think he did a great job.


also some other news .... we just had our 2nd child!
'aleksander judah stanfield' ... who's first intro to prog was funny enough, the IF album! yay. then he got a good dose of agents of mercy.

keeping mother and father up at night, but that's what they do best!

No progress with IS. Still too overwhelming and time consuming to face. It'll probably just become a hobby we tinker with now and then - though perhaps one day we'll get a burst of energy and just finish it. Time will tell...

OK, dispensing with "IS or not to IS, that be the question".... :lol:

What I want to know concerning a new GH work is this:

What are the chances of Bogdanowicz and Davison sharing vocal duties?

I thought I'd hear that on COA, with you know who, but :roll:

it'll come when it comes ... and when it comes it will be the right time for it ... and when it's ready to be unleashed ... IT WILL ROCK!

if 'IS' is pulling you away from projects like 'IF' it aint all bad :)

have a great week everyone!

Susie says she'd love to return and sing something, and I'm sure Jon wouldn't mind at all. Its just a matter of whether the material would be right for both of them, and if the logistics could be worked out since Susie is a long way away at present. But over all - we're a male vocalist group at present and though Susie might guest in the future, Jon is our main vocalist.
