19.12.2015 - WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE NOW AVAILABLE 

At last....'When Worlds Collide' Galahad's 30th anniversary retrospective collection is now available from our merchandise page, just in time for Christmas!

The press release is as follows:

In order to celebrate the band’s 30th anniversary Galahad will be releasing a historical double CD retrospective with a twist, the twist being that ten of the tracks included are brand new re-recorded versions of old Galahad songs, some dating back to 1985, the year the band formed, including one thirty year old track (City of Freedom) which has never been recorded properly before!

In some cases the new versions are similar to the originals but in other cases the songs have been re-worked and re-arranged considerably, either way we have tried our best to be sympathetic to the spirit of the originals whilst trying to bring them up to date in terms of their sonic quality and also so that they compare favourably, hopefully, with the Galahad sound of 2015!

As this is a rather special as well as an epic album, clocking in at approximately  2 hours and 36 minutes,  we have also included a few strategically placed ‘tributes’ to a few of our original influences within some of the newly recorded ‘old’ tracks, so it’ll be interesting to see if they’ll get spotted!

Hopefully, this collection is a fair representation of the Galahad cannon and will appeal to existing fans of the band and will also, perhaps, act as a taster to those yet to dip their toes in the world of Galahad music.

12.10.2015 - CLASSIC ROCK SOCIETY MEMOIRS BY FOUNDER MARTIN HUDSON PUBLISHED 

Although not strictly Galahad news, the band were very much involved in playing various shows for the Classic Rock Society when it was based purely in Rotherham back in the 1990s and 2000s. Martin Hudson, the founder of the Society who has always been a keen supporter of the band is about to publish a book relating to the lives and times of the CRS.

Of course and as you'd expect, Galahad do feature reasonably prominently. In fact our 1995 live album 'Classic Rock Live' (recorded at the now non-existent Herringthorpe Leisure Centre) was the first joint release between the Society and a band which is no doubt is covered in this new book which is entitled 'Rotherham Rocked' and will be available shortly from the CRS website at: www.classicrocksociety.co.uk for £12.99 plus p&p.

The book also features a forward by honorary president Rick Wakeman and we are sure it will be a great read detailing various anecdotes and stories, some of which are highly amusing over the period from 1991 to 2009.

The book is over 250 pages and contains over 200 photos as well as a listing of every show held by the CRS up to 2009.

All profits from the sale of the book will go to Rotherham Hospice which is yet another great reason to grab a copy.

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! :-)
