Frost*, the brainchild of keyboard player and song-writer Jem Godfrey, recently announced the release of their long-awaited new album 'Falling Satellites' for May 27th, 2016. Joined by guitarist & vocalist John Mitchell (Lonely Robot, It Bites), drummer Craig Blundell (Steven Wilson) & bassist Nathan King (Level 42), 'Falling Satellites' is the band's first album in 8 years & the follow-up to the acclaimed 'Experiments In Mass Appeal'.
The band have released two live videos, taken from their DVD ' The Rockfield Files', one an early version of the track 'Heartstrings' from the new album, and the other is fan-favorite 'Black Light Machine' from 'Milliontown'.
Jem had this to say:
"This was taken from our DVD "The Rockfield Files", it's a very early version of the song that we were trying out to see if it would work live. It's interesting to see how much it's evolved since this version"
