Prog rockers Gandalf’s Fist have revealed the title, tracklisting and cover art for their forthcoming new album.
A Forest Of Fey will be the band’s first release as a four piece after founders Dean Marsh and Luke Severn promoted touring members Stefan Hepe and Chris Ewen to full-time roles. The LP also features guest appearances from the likes of Troy Donockley (Nightwish), John Mitchell (It Bites/Arena), Dave Oberlé (Gryphon), Clive Nolan (Pendragon/Arena) and Matt Stevens (Instrumental Artist/The Fierce and the Dead).
Speaking of the album ahead of it’s Autumn release, the band said: “A Forest Of Fey follows the psychedelic, folk-tinged journey of a young girl trapped in a malevolent woodland… We’ll be updating as we go along – and would like to thank you all for your great feedback on last year’s album… we’re working hard to make this one even better!!”
The bespoke album art was created by German Artist Thomas Huth, and can be seen above.
