Founding member Jon Jeary on new album

Threshold have announced that their new album Legends Of The Shires features a guest appearance by former bassist Jon Jeary, who was one of the band’s founding members and last performed with the band in 2002.

Speaking about his cameo, Jon commented: “I always look forward to hearing a new Threshold album and this time I’m doubly excited because Glynn will be singing and also, I am proud to say, there will be a small cameo vocal performance from me on ‘The Shire (part 3)’. 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.”

Jon Jeary was the band’s bassist and also performed backing vocals on songs such as ‘Eat The Unicorn’. He co-wrote a number of the band’s early classics, including ‘Sanity’s End’, ‘Into the Light’ and ‘The Ravages Of Time’. Jon previously appeared on the Threshold albums Wounded Land (1993) to Critical Mass (2002).
