Man, I hope that's true...

But I doubt it...

Where did you hear this rumour Bluey?

Actually it's true!

Shadowland will be back out on tour next year, and we will be making a DVd amongst other things.
I really hope to see some of you at the gigs!

We've managed to whip a website up for some instant information:   www.MySpace.com/shadowlanduk
There will be a 'normal' website later

Now... time to start learning piles of lyrics!

COOOOOL!!! ;D ;D ;D

Quote
To celebrate their return, they will be releasing a ‘best of’ album (called ‘A Matter of Perspective’) featuring their favourite tracks from the three previously released (but now unavailable) albums, and also boasting some brand new material. This CD (over 70 minutes of music) will be available from February 2009.

Are there also plans for a new studio album???
And will there be reissues of the first three albums in the future?

Please? ::)


Ah man, fantastic news!! *horns*
Thanks Clive!!!!

So when then? Clive, I guess it's February?  It's been February since 1998, I believe.... but it never happened. I won't hold my breath this time, but it will be great when it happens...

Can you tell anything about the line-up? Wille Mike Varty be part of it this time as well?

Can we vote for our favourite tracks for the best-of?

Excellent news.  I guess the 'Best Of' means there's less chance of the original albums resurfacing, but anything is better than nothing.  Speaking from the pespective of someone who only has one out of the three CDs :(

If you check the MySpace site you will see which gigs are confirmed.... and yes, it was always going to be February....;)

The 'Best of' album will contain our favourite tracks from the three album, plus some new material, which is being recording now.
Hopefully we will have the original line up (including Mike Varty), except that Ian Salmon will be replaced on Bass and Acoustic by Mark Westwood.

And that's the news so far...

Clive

Why not take this new material, write some more new material and get a new album out while you're at it? It leaves more space for some more 'Best of' material for "A Matter Of Perspective". ;)

But ofcourse, thy will be done.
I'm VERY much looking forward to this!!!

Thanks for all the info Clive, much appreciated! :) :) :)

I thought we had clarified that good old Nicky is exactly my type! ;D

Thanks for that Nick, after all, you're the only one who knows the French language here! ;D

For all those Dutchies around: it's "Ik ben de ridder, zonder het paard!".

By the way, in German that would be "Ich bin der Ritter, ohne das Pferd."

Right, Paxi, and in African it would be:  "Bongo bon bong!"  :D ;D

Paardon me, Paxi, but how did "horse" or "Pferd" become "paard"  ???

Just to make sure that everybody (non-marsh) didnt get it ?

Nicky.

Well, "Pferd" and "Paard" are both of "Paraverédus" which is Latin.
In Victorian-era England the English knew the word "Prad" as well.
But they later on used the word "Horse" ("Ross" in German, "Ros" in Dutch).

In African it's actually "Perd".

We've forgotten about it since.  Largely because 'Equus' gets a better score in Scrabble ;)
