    I have been super busy with my day job, so it's been a bit slow going...BUT

    the album is 90% mixed, I am finishing it soon(missing ALL of my stated deadlines, so not making any further lol).
    then it will be mastered by our mastering engineer, then done.
    Artwork is done by a masterful artist from Poland, Michal Klimzak...he is a glorious artist/photo guy.

    we have a few(3) labels we are going to discuss release with, determine that course...

    June 17 we are shooting a VIDEO for the lead off single ZENITH, this will be dropped on release day, hopefully get connected with PROG magazine again.

    the album is far more progressive, a bit darker, but still very melodic. Our guitar player, David Peña, who guested on the first album, has been upgraded to member for this album. His work on the album so defined it, and he was the only guitar addition we had, so this album its a trio full out. He has brought some great feel to the work, I am hopeful people will appreciate it.

    we are very high on Brave New World...its like our opus...its long...74mins...but I truly feel it flows well and never drags. WE SHALL SEE! lol.

    All three of us aim to be at Progstock...it would be great to have the album in hand by then as we meet/talk/hang out with other proggers.

    I will be sure to let you know as soon as we are done Pixel. You are a generous support, I appreciate you. I hope you like what we have done. :-)

    thanks for asking. it was nice seeing our thread on the feed this morning....peace!!
    Thanks to Pixel I was able to discover your wonderful music this morning. Was going to post in response but wife and I left to get to the beach early before the crowds and just got back awhile ago.
    I really enjoy Planet and it's 80's throwback influence, but listened to the 2 songs you've got posted on Bandcamp and have to say I really like the music and will most likely be getting the album when it's released.
    As I listened I couldn't help but notice a great maturity in the new music, arrangement and style. Also I can't tell you how many times I've liked a new band but then the vocalist starts singing and I'm out of there, many Progressive bands seem to suffer from lead vocals not rising to the level of superior musicanship in my opinion. But I love the vocals on this and Planet is excellent also.

    Keep up the good work, and as you toil about your day job, just remember there are people out here who really like and enjoy your creativity. Thank you for sharing your talent and artistic vision with us, looking forward to the new album.

    Thanks TOP CAT. Its appreciated. Kenny/lead vocals and I/backing Vox are fortunate that our voices blend very naturally. I love when that happens. you think Anderson and Squire, Gabriel and Collins, Orzabal and Smith...NOT that we are in their league...but they seem so naturally similar so they blend so well.

    I am very lucky that Kenny joined me in this project back in 15, he and I met back in the 80's when we both had bands out on the local circuit. so we have been friend for many years...but never worked on anything together. Now we are deep in to the B4tF world and hopefully we can continue to make albums until the sun don't shine.

    Kenny actually wrote the song Planet in the 80's, its always been in his catalogue, I just re-imagined it for B4tF. Trying to honor the spirit of its era.

    There is the debut album also on band camp..if you have interest in looking. Thanks again for your kind note.

    peace. --Patric

    Also in the B4tF news...Kenny is working on a SOLO album entitled: BROKEN WILDERNESS. Its coming along very nicely. I would say it is in the vein of Alan Parsons Project, Tears for Fears(of course), RPWL and Riversea.
    LOTS of vocals! the songs are very good. Kenny plays and sings everything himself. It is an emotionally reflective set of songs...I think he is doing a great job on it. And it really speaks to who Kenny is an an artist. the title track is one of the best things he has ever done!

    that should be out by the end of the year.

    peace. Patric

    Thanks for sharing the background on how the two of you met. It's a special thing when 2 musicians can have that connection and continue once the initial newness has worn off. Kind of like girlfriends or other relationships. lol But you definitely have something special together, and it shows in your music.

    I did check out some of the songs from the first album, and didn't feel the connection as I have with the newer material. That being said, I'll revisit it again and see if it was just my mood at the time.

    That's great news about Kenny's solo album, I'd be very interested in hearing it, so please keep us posted. Just make sure the release of the new B4tF album and his solo are spaced far enough apart.

    Keep up the positive attitude, this music thing can be frustrating at times when it seems no one is interested, but it looks like you've gotten good exposure and the material and performance are strong so it's just a matter of getting more people onboard.
    If you ever are feeling down or frustrated please feel free to message me here. I'm an old dog(71) who has lived through a lot and if anything I'm a good listener.

    thanks for taking the time TOPCAT. You sound like a wise Obi-wan of prog! Great thought on Kenny solo release date, he and are strategically planning that time gap.

    Rather than down, I always feel grateful for anyone to listen to/comment/respond to our music. As all of us know..this isn't a thing you do for the $! lol. We do it with hopes we reach ears and connect. And that has been the most fulfilling thing above all. PIXEL D is an example of what really makes us feel like we should continue to put our hearts in to the music.

    the album AND the new album are metaphorical, and relate to a personal experience that I have been and am going through in my life. So they have a significant emotional meaning, but we try to make the sci-fi metaphors as relatable as we can so others can apply the feelings to their own views.

    One day I will send you a private message and give you the inside scoop on the situation. it does make the lyrical impact more apparent.

    thanks again for taking time, I hope I am still jamming to prog at 71!!

    peace Top Cat, talk soon my friend.
