THRESHOLD – band release video for ‘Stars And Satellites’ + album out now!


UK progressive metal quintet THRESHOLD release their colossal double concept album »Legends Of The Shires« today via Nuclear Blast. The 11th studio album by the band features old / new vocalist Glynn Morgan, who lent his vocals to the band’s 1994 release, »Psychedelicatessen«. In contrast to the more straight-ahead heaviness and traditional structures of 2014’s »For The Journey«, the new album is an admirable exercise in flexing creative muscles and revelling in exploratory flair.

The European press is also impressed by »Legends Of The Shires«, which is proved by several great soundcheck positions:

#1 – ROCK IT! (D)


#2 – ROCK HARD (D)



#8 – SPARK (CZ)

To celebrate the release, THRESHOLD have unleashed a lyric video for new track, ‘Stars And Satellites’. Watch and listen, here:

“Welcome to the third single from our new album. It’s a catchy little progressive number about finding your place in the world and I hope you enjoy it,” says keyboardist Richard West. Karl Groom continues, “I am excited about the release of »Legends Of The Shires« today. It represents a huge achievement for the band and one of the most creative periods we have ever experienced. I hope it connects with those listening and has a lasting impression.”

Vocalist Glynn Morgan is thankful for fans accepting him back into the fold and is excited to get out on the road with the guys: “I’ve always been a fan of the band. I was just a fan, keeping up to date, and I think Karl and Richard’s songwriting, they’re a great team and it’s all good stuff. So when I got the call, how could I say no? A big thank you to all the fans who have welcomed me back. I hope you’re loving the new tunes as much as I loved singing them! See you all in the fall on the »Legends« tour.”
