It's taken a while but we are almost there with the definitive history of the band!
Hopefully this account will demonstrate that you don't have to be a massive band like Pink Floyd, Queen or Led Zeppelin to have had an interesting, sometimes chaotic but never dull 'career' in rock and roll. At 28 years, it's been a bit longer than many others too!
Each copy also comes with a companion DVD video archive containing rare studio and live performance footage of the band dating as far back as 1986.
In fact it would be good to get your feedback as regards who is interested in a copy of this book as it will give us an indication of how many we should publish. So please let us know if you are interested.
Look out on our website where it will be available to pre-order. More details to follow.

"Probably the most radical release in the Galahad canon. Consisting of remixes from original vocal, guitar, keyboard and woodwind tracks taken from the Following Ghosts master tapes and used to 'build' completely new pieces of music. Although not a dance re-mix album as such, there are a lot of breakbeat/house style beats along with more ethnic/eastern influences which Galahad has dabbled with over the years. On reflection, although it was an unusual experiment, especially for the time, which didn't always work as a whole, there are still some very interesting and creative moments on the album, which still sound fresh and contemporary after all these years later, proving conclusively that Galahad have never been just another, so called, 'Neo-Prog band'!"
BATTLE SCARS & BEYOND THE REALMS OF EUPHORIA
Well, what can we say, both new albums released in 2012 were extremely well received, better than we had hoped in fact, so a massive thanks to all those who have supported us with these releases. 2012 has turned out to be our most successful year ever in terms of sales, bucking the trend too!
The year also saw a massive increase and interest in back catalogue sales which has also helped to maintain faith and belief in what we do. The re-issue of 'Year Zero' by our good friends at Oskar has also done particularly well.
Both 'Battle Scars' and 'Beyond the Realms of Euphoria' are available on CD, LP and Download.
