UK prog rockers The Reasoning have postponed the release of their new album.
Announcing the delay of their fifth LP until 2015, the band indicated that they were doing so in order to take advantage of recording and production opportunities that had come their way.
The Reasoning’s autumn dates around the UK, titled The Great Escape Tour, will be going ahead however, with performances of the band’s debut album, Awakening, in its entirety.
Said bassist Matt Cohen: “After the whirlwind experiences of the past couple of years, we’re going to take some extra time to really develop and embellish this new piece of work, and craft it to its very richest potential.
“This is going to be a big financial investment for us – outsourcing the recording of drums and, for the first time, vocals, to some big studios. We’re also in talks with several mix engineers, both here and on the other side of the Atlantic.”
Regarding the tour, Cohen said: “”The shows will feature Awakening in its entirety and will also showcase some brand new material.”
The delay of the new album means that it’s release will coincide with the band’s 10th anniversary.

24th of Oct: Talking Heads, Southampton
25th of Oct: Venue 2, London
30th of Oct: The Duchess, York
