Damian Wilson has released a lyric video for his track Thrill Me.

The song features on the Threshold and Headspace frontman’s upcoming solo album Built For Fighting.

His first studio album since 2003’s Let’s Start A Commune was produced by Andrew Holdsworth, with Bill Shanley, Lee Pomeroy, Adam Wakeman and Brian Willoughby joining Wilson on the record.

The singer was forced to delay the release of Built For Fighting due to “personal matters” back in April but with those now resolved, the new launch date is set for September 9.

Wilson says: “I was fortunate to be surrounded by exceptional musicians and people, who allowed me to produce the album I really wanted to produce.

“Life is a fight – a never-ending brawl and struggle to find a little peace.”

Along with 11 original tracks, the record also features a cover version of Depeche Mode’s Somebody, which originally appeared on the UK outfit’s 1984 album Some Great Reward.

Last month, Threshold confirmed that the follow-up to 2014’s For The Journey would be a concept album, with the band reporting their 11th album would arrive in 2017.

Wilson and Threshold will play the Baarlo Progpower Europe Festival in the Netherlands on October 2.
