Freedom To Glide announce shell shock EP

Freedom To Glide have released a trailer for upcoming EP Sick To Death, which deals with the concept of shell shock during the First World War.

It follows well-received debut album Rain, launched on Remembrence Day last year by collaborators Pete Riley and Andy Nixon. It was inspired by the experiences of Riley’s grandfather, Corporal Robert Wilson, who survived the conflict.

Riley tells Prog: “There’s a subtle but conscious shift in music style with Sick To Death – but it’s still very much the band our fans have come to know.

“It’s a story we felt had to be met head-on, and with the respect and sensitivity it deserves.”

They’re currently shooting a video for lead track A Better Way, which will be released alongside the EP on November 5. The four-track title is available for pre-order now.

Tracklist

  1. A Better Way

  2. Dear Mum

  3. No White Stone

  4. Shell Shocked

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.
