Enchant break their 10-year silence

Enchant will break a ten-year silence when they launch The Great Divide in September via InsideOut.

It’s their first release since 2004’s Live At Last and their first studio outing since Tug Of War, which appeared the previous year.

The 2014 lineup features vocalist Ted Leonard (Spock’s Beard and Thought Chamber), guitarist Douglas A Ott, bassist Ed Platt, keyboardist Bill Jenkins (Sound Of Contact, Thought Chamber) and drummer Sean Flanegan (Cynthesis).

Mainman Ott says: “There was a time I was unsure of Enchant’s future – but fear not. We’re very excited and proud of this endeavour. It’s classic Enchant, but with a bunch of new twists and turns. It’s been a long time in the making, but it’s surely worth the wait.”

Meanwhile, InsideOut have confirmed they’ll release the band’s 1993 debut A Blueprint Of The World on limited-edition vinyl for the first time on September 1, including the 10 original tracks, a bonus number, and the full album on bonus CD. It’s available for pre-order now.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
