SOLSTICE To Release “Prophecy”; Coming With Bonus Tracks Remixed By Steven Wilson


Solstice will release their fifth album, Prophecy, on October 28.

The five-track work comes with three remixes from 1984 debut Silent Dance compiled by long-time fan Steven Wilson. In addition there’s a new recording of Earthsong from the same record.

Solstice are still fronted by Andy Glass, who’s joined by Steve McDaniel (keys), Robin Phillips (bass), Pete Hemsley (drums), Jenny Newman (violin) and Emma Brown (vocals).

Glass says: “Prophecy is without doubt our most cohesive and ambitious album so far. It’s based around five new pieces with images by iconic Marvel artist Barry Kitson portraying the story.

“Steven Wilson has has been a fan of the music for years, and incredibly generous in his support. With the endorsement of Steven, Barry and now Esoteric Antenna Records, it feels like the stars are finally coming into alignment for us.”

The label say Prophecy continues the band’s “iconic blend of soaring violin and guitar weaving around delicately passionate vocals, underpinned by driving rhythmic complexity.”

Solstice will perform the album in full at London’s Borderline on October 29, supported by Matt Stevens. Tickets for the original date of September 20 are transferable.
