Rob Sowden has released a follow up to the 2003 album Dark Places, Interfearon (digital only @Bandcamp). Looking at the tracklist it looks like “Dark Places 1.5” with many titles returning, don’t know if these are new recordings but anyhow it is nice to see new activity and Dark Places is out of print.

Tracklist   
1.She Knows 05:24
2.Come 04:23
3.Forlorn 06:29
4.Caving In 07:52
5.Mother Of Mother 08:01
6.Odyssey (In 'A' Major) 09:05
7.Untouchable 07:04
8.Arizona Dream (Letter To Valou) 06:56
9.Twice As Bright As The Sun 08:41

About
Interfearon is a progressive and ambient art rock album. Totally self indulgent. It is a culmination of ideas and inspirations years in forming, with songs of love, unrequited love and alien abduction.

Wow cool!
It looks like it's a remastered edition of "Dark Places", maybe even some re-recorded parts indeed.
Definitively enhanced because I hear things I don't recognise.

Come and Forlorn are 'new' songs. (I don't know whether they are new as in 'recent', or just earlier written but previously unreleased.)
But I also miss four other songs: Cheap Trill, Psycho, Atrophy and In A Dark Place.
To me, it seems strange to bring out a remaster and just neglect some of the songs.

Anyway, I hope this means there's some new stuff on the way!! Let's hope so!

Thank you Erik, as always!
