They were joined in 2019 by ex-Pain Of Salvation guitarist Daniel Madgic and bassist Noah Magnusson and played their first shows at ProgPower Europe in 2019 (where word has it they were so good even the food stall closed so they could watch the band!).

Magical Mystery Machine followed in 2020,a sci-fi-inspired conceptual affair centred around characters Cora and Jareth. The duo return for the new album. The band will also play at ProgDreams IX festival in March.

The Magical Mystery Machine - Chapter 2 will be available as a limited edition clear vinyl album, a 2 panel digisleeve compact disc and a digital album.
