The band, formed in Birmingham in 1972, had notable successes in their early years, including 1982 album ‘Chasing the Dragon’ which spawned live favorites ‘ Soldier of The Line’, ‘Sacred Hour’ and ‘The Spirit’.

Going on to release 7 albums since, including 2014’s ‘Escape from the Shadow Garden’ which reached number 2 in the UK Rock Metal Chart, as well as number 4 in the UK Indie Charts.
The band have built a following in Europe, having had commercial success in Germany Sweden, and regularly play sold out shows touring across the continent.
Their upcoming tour coinciding with this, along with performing some of their most notable songs, are set to be an unadulterated display of the band’s musical vision with their new album. “Thanks to our current record company, we enjoy full artistic freedom,” Clarkin enthuses. “SPV understand how important this is to us. We’ve not always been in such a fortunate position. During the eighties, the label we were with at the time wanted us to sound as pop-oriented as possible because they hoped for better album sales. I used to hate that, despite the success we had.”
