British Progressive icons Threshold have announced their new album “Legends of the Shires” will be released via Nuclear Blast on September 8th, 2017.

Today the band unveiled the first single from the release, the ultra-prog epic “Lost in Translation”, which has a song length of over ten minutes! Watch the video for “Lost in Translation” below.

Commented Threshold's Richard West:
“We've made a monster of an album so we thought we should release a monster of a single! This epic really showcases the many sides of our sound and is a great prelude to our album release”.

“Legends of the Shires” will be the band's eleventh studio album and their first ever double album; it also features Glynn Morgan back on vocal duties for the first time since 1996.

Check out the ethereal album artwork above by Russian artist Elena Dudina.

Speaking about the artwork Richard West commented:
“I love it when a cover tells you what sort of record you're buying. This one really shouts 'progressive' and reminds me of some of the classic prog albums from the 20th century”.
