British progressive metallers Threshold will release their new album, For The Journey, on September 19 via Nuclear Blast. The follow-up to 2012's March Of Progress was produced at Thin Ice Studios in England by Threshold members Karl Groom (guitars) and Richard West (keyboards) and was mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox in Finland.
Commented West: "For The Journey is one of our strongest albums and one of the most enjoyable to make. I've probably heard it a thousand times during the recording process, but now that's it's over, I still can't stop listening to it!"
For The Journey track listing:
01. Watchtower On The Moon
03. The Box
04. Turned To Dust
05. Lost In Your Memory
06. Autumn Red
07. The Mystery Show
08. Siren Sky
09. I Wish I Could (digipak, vinyl and digital versions)
10. Lost in your Memory (acoustic version) (vinyl and digital versions)
The cover artwork was created by Polish artist Leszek Bujnowski, whom Threshold found on the Internet. "He's designed some beautiful pieces and we thought this was a perfect Threshold cover," stated West.
