    Oh, and a quick stupid question: which song is being played as the background soundtrack for the trailer clip? It sounds really great!

    The trailer track is indeed Ashes in full length form and stops before the second instrumental section. The single edit is different to comply with the sub 5 minute rules.

    We are trying to get everyone to be available for a tour early next year.

    There's no way we could forget the track about Pete joining Threshold! Good luck to Pete this week as he attends mixing of his solo album.

    We're talking about playing a concept album in full because it's like telling a story. It would be a special gig with an awesome vibe and if you had visuals on the screen like you did on the last tour, it would be out of this world! You will NEVER hear me ask you play Wounded Land or Subsurface in full. This has nothing to do with your retirement plan. :)

    Not that common nowadays, but Dark Tranquillity and Borknagar still do so.

    I understand what you are saying and I did recently enjoy listening to Clone. This was the first time in full since we recorded it and brought back some great memories. I just wonder what you would do when faced with the options though. I have to ask Damian to learn a whole new album of lyrics, plus some extra tracks for a tour. He does put in a serious amount of effort to get them right being as they are not words written by himself. Should that be March of Progress or Clone he works on? Having said that, I expect we can do something from Clone live.

    Don't worry, he slips that into the conversation every time we have met.

    what about the fact that, except for the nuclear blast website, the album is apparently not preordable anywhere?

    22yep, actually amazon has it (but it says "This title will be released on September 3, 2012."). Fun that you found it under the "film & tv" category :D

    Also Emp has it (with the usual very high prices).

    Nobody knows the release date any longer. I even had the wrong date on the trailer.

    Oh this sounds bad, should we be worried?

    Great, will be looking for the single tomorrow, then. Is the main album going to be available on Threshold's online store as well?

    I am asking this because it's rather difficult to find Threshold albums in Switzerland...not to mention expensive when compared to other markets.

    The single lyrics video is out now:



    Usually we don't have a new studio album in the Threshold shop. It is more likely when we go on tour.

    Album release date is definitely 24th. There will Track by Track video clips up in 2 weeks.

    First impression after one listening: the song is great, I really like the Subsurface meets Dead Reckoning approach (and so should do mr. picky aka forgottenglory), but what is really out of this world are the vocal melodies, absolutely astonishing!!!
    A few minor things I'm not fond of: the snare drum sounds a bit too 'plastic' and weak (but I will judge it better with the cd), and I would have appreciated backing vocals sung by all members - as on Extinct Instinct, for example, to me it sounds better. But it's just a matter of personal tastes :)

    Who plays that Nick Midson-ish :)D) wah solo?
