Sequences to be released on Remembrance Sunday
We are delighted to announce we have completed the recording and mixing of the new studio version of Sequences. The 23-minute piece tells the story of a young man going off to fight in the First World War and coming back a changed man.
Orders are now being taken for the limited edition, album-length CD (available in three donation options, details here), which will be released on Remembrance Sunday, 11th November. There will also be an exclusive world-wide first play of the piece on Progzilla Radio (www.progzilla.com) at 11:02am on the same day, following the two minute silence.
The album consists of three versions of our best loved track: an updated, expanded and orchestrated vocal version, a complete instrumental mix (in a nod to its original form) and a brand new piano interpretation of three key sections of the track.
Andy Revell: “We are proud of what we have achieved reinterpreting this piece that has occupied a central part of the band’s repertoire throughout its existence”, and hope everyone will enjoy this, our first studio recording since 1994, as much as we have enjoyed making it.”
The line-up is Brian Devoil (drums), Andy Revell (guitar), and Mark Spencer (vocals, keyboards, orchestration, and other bits), joined by Dean Baker (piano, keyboards) and Andy Faulkner (bass). There is also a special appearance by the late Geoff Mann and, for one brief moment, a 200-strong choir comprised of various vocalist friends.
The CD comes with a 16-page booklet, which has a number of striking images perfectly illustrating the lyrics, and includes comprehensive sleeve notes detailing the development of the song, which was first performed some 40 years ago.
In response to a suggestion when ordering from our website you will have the option to increase your donation to the Poppy Appeal as there are three different versions available.
