Gandalf’s Fist have revealed that their new album will be titled The Clockwork Fable.
Describing it as “the finest work” that they have have recorded, it is set to be released as a triple LP.
Say the group: “We are delighted to announce The Clockwork Fable, a prog-rock mind movie in three oscillations. As a follow-up to A Forest Of Fey, we’ve gone all-out, creating a truly epic triple concept album.
“Set in the fictional world of Cogtopolis, each CD serves as a different act of the story, with Dean Marsh and Luke Severn, along with to-be-announced guest vocalists, providing the singing voices of the inhabitants.”
They add: “A far cry from a musical, where characters burst into song at the drop of a proverbial hat, The Clockwork Fable serves as a sprawling motion picture that will play out in your neocortex with Gandalf’s Fist, of course, providing the soundtrack.
“We truly believe this is the finest musical work we’ve ever created. There’s a mix of all of our influences and were you to put all of the best bits of our discography into a huge melting pot you’d end up with something quite close – but not as awesome – as what we’ve created.”
An official release date for The Clockwork Fable has yet to be confirmed, but pre-orders for the new album are open now, with those who buy early saving 20% on the full price of the new release.
