Vocalist Damian Wilson & guitarist Richard West of the British progressive metal sextet THRESHOLD have released their commentary on the first four tracks comprising their tenth studio album, For The Journey, which will be released digitally via Nuclear Blast on September 30th.

For The Journey will be THRESHOLD’s second consecutive studio album featuring Damian Wilson since his departure from the band in 1997. “I think it’s just the fact that we’ve become really good friends and it’s the companionship in the band,” reveals Wilson on how easy it was to record the new album. “We seem to care a lot about each other and we’ve become really close, so we thoroughly enjoy making music together.”
For The Journey was recorded at Thin Ice Studios in Surrey, England with band members Karl Groom (guitars) and Richard West (keyboards) at the production helm. Mastering was done by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios in Finland. Album artwork created by Polish artist Leszek Bujnowski.
