06.10.2014 - MEIN HERZ BRENNT EP - OUT NOW 

Here is the front cover of Mein Herz Brennt, our third and final EP release of 2014 which is out NOW.

This release contains four different and varied versions of this Rammstein classic.

As most people know we don't generally record or perform cover versions but we just fancied recording one for a change as a bit of fun, plus this track a little less obvious than what many may think we might attempt!

We had tremendous fun in the studio recording it and hope many of you will like listening to it too! :-)

07.07.2014 - GALAHAD IN PROG 47: GA EP & C8.3 REVIEW 

Galahad feature prominently in the current issue (47) of PROG magazine which includes a review of the Guardian Angel EP as well as an 'interesting' live review of the band's performance at Celebr8.3 in Islington in June, which was, by the way, a storming gig!

Lovely venue, very responsive audience as well as being a very well organised festival, everything ran to time for a change too!

Thoroughly enjoyable and worthwhile it was too, thus a big 'hat's off to the organisers Jon Patrick, Geoff Banks and all of those who helped to ensure it's smooth running.
;-) 

18.06.2014 - GALAHAD TO APPEAR AT CHRISTCHURCH FESTIVAL ON 5TH JULY 

The next Galahad show will be at the Christchurch Festival on Saturday 5th July. This will be the first full gig that Tim has played with the band since his farewell Galahad gig at the London Astoria back on 26th April 1992! Galahad will be on at 9pm sharp playinga  full 1 1/2 hour set.

It should be a great festival with, hopefully, something for everyone. Below is the official event poster.

05.06.2014 - TIM ASHTON BACK IN THE GALAHAD FOLD 

Galahad are extremely pleased to announce that Tim Ashton, who played bass for the band in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s, has returned to the fold. Tim played bass on ‘Nothing Is Written’, our first proper studio album which was released in 1991.

In 1992 we thought he was taking a 22 day break to tour Japan and the Far East, turns out we misheard and he actually meant 22 years! :-)

Tim is now back in dear old Blighty after his somewhat lengthy sojourn. His first show back with the band will be at the Christchurch Festival on Saturday 5th July 2014.

Therefore, we would also like to take this opportunity to thank Mark Spencer for his contribution to the band during the last couple of years or so and wish him well with all his other various projects and future endeavours.

 Long live Galahad, the journey continues…
