Enchant, the San Francisco Bay area's long-running Prog Rock institution, has finally returned to the scene they once helped shape and establish! Originally founded in 1989 and with seven studio albums under their belt, it's been a long silence for Enchant since their last official release, the Live At Last 2CD/2DVD set from 2004.
Enchant is currently at work on an overdue, brand-new studio album, and have signed a new longterm worldwide deal with their perennial label-partner, InsideOut Music.
"It's been way too long!" says Douglas A. Ott, main songwriter and guitarist of Enchant. "We had to take time off from ENCHANT because a lot was going on in all of our lives. Divorces, marriages, kids, separations... finally the band is stable again and ready to get going on the new album!"
Ott furthermore adds, "Everyone is really excited and looking forward to the process again. I'm currently doing preproduction and putting together demos of the new material and very shortly I'll start recording the real tracks. We're taking our time and really focusing on the writing and arranging of this new material."
A new Enchant studio album is in its songwriting and pre-production stages right now and is expected to be available for an early 2013 release via InsideOut Music.
