"Copies are available to order from the official Galahad website: and also from the Ritual Echo Records website.

"The second Galahad album of 2012 will be mixed in the next few weeks and, hopefully, be released in September 2012.

"This album also includes Neil on bass as he managed to complete all his bass parts, although he was in a lot of pain and had to sit down to play because of the discomfort. This album will also include an bonus track with a contribution by ex-Galahad keyboard player Mark Andrews as he wrote the original song. More details to follow.

"After a live sabbatical of nearly two years Galahad will [be] up and running in late summer/autumn to play a few selected live shows to promote both new albums and we can’t wait:
