A BAND from Bournemouth that has been making music for 38 years has released its 12th studio album.

Progressive rock outfit Galahad has released its latest album The Long Goodbye.

Singer Stuart Nicholson said: “The title track deals with dementia and seems to have struck a chord with a lot of people who have been affected in one way or another by the disease.”

The Long Goodbye was recorded before, during, and after the recent Covid pandemic.

As was the case with the previous album The Last Great Adventurer, it was recorded at several locations over the last couple of years by the various band members and was finally edited, mixed and mastered, as usual, by engineer/producer Karl Groom (Threshold/Dragonforce/Pendragon/Arena/Yes)

The band said: “As usual, a variety of topics are considered and written about on this album, some very personal, including the title track in which the ageing process and the difficult and tricky subject of early onset dementia is tackled, hopefully with a certain amount of poignancy.”

The Long Goodbye CD version was released last month followed by the digital download/streaming version on November 10, which is available from all the usual online digital platforms including our official Galahad Bandcamp site at https://galahad1.bandcamp.com.
