Jadis announce pre-orders for Medium Rare 2


Jadis have announced that their forthcoming compilation release, Medium Rare 2, is now available for pre-order. The original Medium Rare was released in 2001. Now a new follow-up, featuring some new and previously unreleased material, alongside live, remixed and reworked older tracks, is to be released.

"After Jadis having had such a great 2018 with the release of More Than Meets The Eye 25 and the success of the gigs in the Spring we aim to add to that this year with the release of Medium Rare 2 and a few shows later in the year," Jadis mainman Gary Chandler tells Prog. "We had such a great time playing live again after a 6 year hiatus that we are eager to get out again. We had as much fun with the travel and  off stage antics as we did with playing the tunes and also  I was amazed by the  amount of people who have followed us for many years still turning out to see us.Long may it continue."
