The now internationally flavoured line-up now includes Guy Manning, Daniel Mash and Marek Arnold with guest appearances on the new album including: Steve Unruh, Jon Anderson, Steve Hackett and many more. The band have also called on visual artist and designer Ed Unitsky to provide the stunning artwork for the release.
