    Focus Announce Release of New Studio Album Focus 11

    Dutch Music Legends Focus Announce Release of New Studio Album Focus 11

    Exclusively available on the band's November UK tour and via the band's official online store ONLY!

    The current line-up of Focus, which features Thijs van Leer, Pierre van der Linden, Menno Gootjes and Udo Pannekeet completed the new studio album titled Focus 11 earlier this year and are debuting the CD edition on their November UK Tour.

    The 11 track album will be released as a CD, gatefold coloured LP and Download on the band's own In And Out of Focus Records, via Cherry Red, in late January. The album features artwork by Roger Dean.

    When asked about the album, Thijs van Leer responded with this poem:
    Wow, my joy could not increase
    To see this new release
    It has Mazzel, Palindrome and Heaven
    Plus a title track called Eleven
    Both angelic and a beast
    It's Focus, to say the least!

    For fans who can't attend the November tour, the only place where the CD can be ordered online (with orders being fulfilled in November 2018) is the band's own webstore: https://burningshed.com/store/focus

    For fans wishing to pre-order the CD and LP for when they are released in January, Amazon is starting to take pre-orders now. The CD is identical. Amazon CD: http://geni.us/Focus11CD and Amazon LP: http://geni.us/Focus11LP

    Trying to appeal to a more selective audience?

    So there will be no US vendors carrying it?

    And the download will be available from Cherry Red?

    Amazon page says it is not available for pre order yet. I signed up to be emailed when it is. Excited to hear another Focus album from these musicians! Too bad no US tour.

    If I'm reading the OP correctly this won't be available from Amazon.

    I guess the OP was incorrect then.

    Per the original OP's post: For fans wishing to pre-order the CD and LP for when they are released in January, Amazon is starting to take pre-orders now. The CD is identical. Amazon CD: http://geni.us/Focus11CD and Amazon LP: http://geni.us/Focus11LP.

    That's why I checked on Amazon.

    Don’t see any reason why not to pick this one up. I’m sure it’ll be available at all our favorite online boutique retailers (in addition to Burning Shed, of course).
    I want to dynamite your mind with love tonight.

    Thanks, I missed that. But also it was the second line of the OP that led me astray:

    "Exclusively available on the band's November UK tour and via the band's official online store ONLY!"

    I'm glad it will have wider distribution though!

    No problem. Happy Thanksgiving!
