Headspace to release “All That You Fear is Gone” on February 26th 2016

Headspace, the band featuring Damian Wilson (Threshold) & Adam Wakeman (Ozzy Osbourne, Snakecharmer), recently announced the release of their second album “All That You Fear is Gone” on February 26th 2016.

The band, completed by guitarist Pete Rinaldi (Hot Leg) & bassist Lee Pomeroy (It Bites, Steve Hackett), and new drummer Adam Falkner (Babyshambes, Dido, One Eskimo) have also launched the first track to be taken from the album, and you can listen to “Your Life Will Change” below.

Vocalist Damian Wilson had this to say about the track:

Slivovitz - All You Can Eat

Do not mistake it with the latest Steel Panther album, which goes under the same title. I do think that Slivovitz means another thing with “All You Can Eat” and not what Steel Panther means. This was my first thought when I saw that album title. Even though those bands belong to a totally different music genre… I personally do not consider it a good idea to use a title that has been firstly used by Steel Panther for various reasons.
 

Zierler


Zierler’s “Esc”, much like Darkology took a “few” years to be released – are some of your releases kind of cursed with long waiting times?
 
K: I think you can chalk that up to the state of the music business. Because of illegal downloading, making an album happen is much more difficult for artists and labels. That’s just a reality we have to face.
 
 
When you departed from Beyond Twilight, the whole atmosphere – was at least bad – so how come you guys gave it a second “chance” and let bygones be bygones?
 

Zierler - Esc

It’s rather unclear whether Zierler, the eponymous vehicle of Finn Zierler, the keyboard player behind (Beyond) Twilight is supposed to be a continuation of that band, but certainly there are quite a few parallels that can be drawn between the two projects musically, mostly in scope as well as in the execution that both tends to be quite far-fetched and exotic, utilizing some of the better musicians on the scene, right now, pushing the envelope on what progressive metal can be considered, in a similar, dark and foreboding way…
