The band has had a busy year and there have been a number of other CD and download releases.

A new 10 minute track called Kingmaker featured on the import and iTunes version of the Far Skies Deep Time EP released in August 2011 (Kingmaker replaced Master of Time which was on the original version of the EP.)

We have a limited supply of the import version of Far Skies Deep Time available for sale on our website.

Kingmaker is also available to listen to or to buy as an individual download in high quality audio at:

In April last year, we re-issued our first album, Goodbye to the Age of Steam. Originally released in 1994, the re-issued version was completely remixed from the original master tapes and features three bonus tracks and new artwork.

Goodbye to the Age of Steam and our other releases are available at our website where you can also find links to our Amazon stores and download shop.

Finally, we are hoping to play some gigs in the next year or two and we will keep you posted of any news.

Best wishes

Andy, Dave, David, Greg and Nick
