Right... The Arena 'on hold' period is coming to a close!
We have sat back a little for the last couple of years due to the need for a break, combined with the wish from various members of the band to pursue certain projects (For myself, the last two years have been consumed with the Caamora project). However, the plan was to get things going again this year... and that is still the plan!
We will be in tour in April, and these will be the last gigs we intend to do before making a new album.
There is now a concept for the new album, and some bits of material have been written. There are a few things to sort out and then our attention will revert to writing the Arena album.
Although there are no deadlines, I would like to think that much of the album will be written by the summer... then it will be time to record it! There is no release date planned at the moment, but that will come as the writing progresses.
Once the Arena machine grinds into action again, it won't be a question of 'a busy twelve months'... or 'a massive year'... it will be 'All about Arena for the next few years'.
Hope that answers the question..... Status - Active!!!
