Our new single ‘King Of Nothing’ is out now!

 

Glynn Morgan comments on the song: “It’s about moving on, accepting defeat and just moving on, instead of spending the rest of your life blaming yourself or whoever for things not going the way you´d hoped. As hard as it may seem, don’t give up, just press reset, smile! grab your dreams and start over again, be the King of your own destiny! ‘King of Nothing’ is the first single I have written for THRESHOLD since ‘Innocent’ back in 1994 during my first stint with the band, and it feels awesome and exciting to have one of my songs chosen for release as a single from the new album Dividing Lines.”

Our new single ‘Silenced’ is out now!

 

Richard West comments on the song: “Silenced is about how we seem to be heading towards less voices, less artists, less venues, less platforms where everyone can be heard. People seem so scared to speak out or debate anything anymore. I know I sound old but I miss the good old days! When freedom of speech goes then society is lost.”

We are proud to announce our 12th full length album, Dividing Lines, which is set to be released on November 18th via Nuclear Blast. A collection of cautionary tales, Dividing Lines is best described as ‘Legends’ darker, moodier older brother’.

Ten years ago today the music world lost one of its finest voices, the hugely talented and inimitable Andrew ‘Mac’ McDermott. Mac was the vocalist of British progressive metal band Threshold from 1998 to 2007 and performed on five of the band’s classic albums ‘Clone’, ‘Hypothetical’, ‘Critical Mass’, ‘Subsurface’ and ‘Dead Reckoning’.

“There are many great memories of Mac, some printable and others maybe not, but life was never dull on tour when he was around!” recalls Threshold guitarist Karl Groom. “In contrast, he would usually stay with me in the UK and was a lot quieter away from the pressures of performing. He enjoyed watching nostalgic TV programs that reminded him of his childhood in the North East of England. When I see old bandmates, we sometimes reminisce about Mac and he is sorely missed. His undoubted and unique talent is preserved on the records we made together with Threshold.”

To commemorate the tenth anniversary of his passing, Threshold have unearthed some previously unreleased footage of the song Fragmentation filmed at the Z7 in Switzerland in 2004, one of Mac’s final live shows with the band.

“It was just by chance that a couple of our crew members filmed some of the show”, recounts keyboard player Richard West. “Mac was on fine form that night and the moment at the end where we took a bow together followed by Mac saying goodbye brings a tear to my eye. We had some wonderful times together, and after all these years it’s still hard to accept that he’s gone”.
