British Proggers Threshold Return To The Studio
British progressive metal sextet THRESHOLD are back in the studio working on their tenth studio album.
“It’s good to be working on a new album and cut the time between releases,” shares THRESHOLD guitarist Karl Groom. “Our touring for the March Of Progress album inspired Rich [West, keyboard player] and I to get writing not long after the main set of dates. We want to thank everyone for their support during that time. I should add that other members of the band have also have been writing! Right now I am tracking rhythm guitars and Johanne [James, drummer] is due in the studio as soon as we put the finishing touched on a couple of songs. Hopefully 2014 will be another memorable year for THRESHOLD.”
The band concluded their tour throughout Europe with a headlining performance at the Ciao Luca Festival in Italy. Watch live footage of THRESHOLD’s June appearance at this year’s Rock Hard Festival here:
