Threshold have surprised fans by announcing a new live album that will be available from the merchandise table at their upcoming October tour.

The album, entitled TWO-ZERO-ONE-SEVEN, was recorded during Threshold’s last tour and continues the band’s “direct-to-fan” series of albums which includes other live albums such as “Concert In Paris” and “Surface To Stage”.

“I think our fans are going to love this” enthused Threshold keyboard player Richard West. “We’ve always put together our direct-to-fan releases with the same passion and care as our studio albums. TWO-ZERO-ONE-SEVEN is no exception, it looks and sounds beautiful and really captures the energy and excitement of our last tour.”

TWO-ZERO-ONE-SEVEN will be available on digipak CD and 180g vinyl double LP formats. And for those fans who can’t make it to Threshold’s October tour, it will also be available from the band’s website.

UK progressive metal quintet THRESHOLD released their colossal double concept album “Legends Of The Shires” on September 8th, 2017 through Nuclear Blast. It’s the band’s most successful album to date (#13 Germany, #14 Switzerland, #31 Austria a.o.) and was followed by a rhapsodical 2-week European headline run with several sold out shows. Reasons enough, then, for the band to announce a second leg today. This time, though, THRESHOLD will be performing “Legends Of The Shires” in its entirety and more. Special guests for this trek will also be announced soon. Full tour dates are below.

“We’re really excited about doing this,” commented keyboardist Richard West. “So many fans have asked us to perform the whole of Legends Of The Shires live, and because it’s a concept album I think it’s perfectly suited for this. We can’t wait to get started!”
