Vocalist Glynn Morgan is thankful for fans accepting him back into the fold and is excited to get out on the road with the guys: “I’ve always been a fan of the band. I was just a fan, keeping up to date, and I think Karl and Richard’s songwriting, they’re a great team and it’s all good stuff. So when I got the call, how could I say no? A big thank you to all the fans who have welcomed me back. I hope you’re loving the new tunes as much as I loved singing them! See you all in the fall on the Legends tour.”

UK progressive metal quintet THRESHOLD are set to release their colossal double album Legends Of The Shires on September 8th via Nuclear Blast. In anticipation of the new release, the band are proud to announce the premiere of their stunning new video for ‘Small Dark Lines’. The video was directed by Sitcom Soldiers LTD, who developed a powerful narrative involving people from varying backgrounds marking their bodies with paint to symbolise their regrets in life. Water then cascades over them to wash away the lines, as if wiping the slate clean. Watch the band’s second offering from their much anticipated forthcoming album, here: Small Dark Lines (Official Video)

Speaking about the track and video, Karl Groom commented:  “The people at Sitcom Soldiers have created just the right atmosphere in our new video clip and it was an enjoyable experience to film for the band. We managed to find some excellent extras and tortured them with freezing showers in the clip, with some travelling as far as Sweden for the pleasure! It is great to have Glynn back in the band with Small Dark Lines showcasing all his power and versatility. This single should give people another glimpse into the double album Legends of the Shires and an idea of what is to come on release day 8 September 2017.”

It’s great to be able to appreciate what Threshold do now as one of their faithful army of fans and a privilege to make a small contribution.”
