It’s not an April Fools joke, it’s not a rumour, the hype is real! POWER QUEST has returned after a three year absence from the scene and are currently working on new material for the sixth PQ record.
Band leader Steve Williams had this to say via the band’s official Facebook page:
“I’m genuinely thrilled to be bringing PQ back from the shadows. I’ve had a lot of ups and downs over the past few years but I cannot wait to unleash the new line up. The atmosphere in the rehearsal room over the past couple of months has been electric and it feels great to be back doing what I love most.”
Alongside Steve are Power Quest stalwarts Rich Smith (drums), Gav Owen (guitar) and Paul Finnie (bass). Completing the new look line up are Dan Owen (guitar and twin brother of Gav) and new vocalist Ashley Edison who also fronts UK outfit DENDERA.

A headline show at Camden Underworld in London has been confirmed for Saturday September 10th 2016 where the band will be joined by some very special guests. Further live dates will be announced in the coming months.
The band has parted ways with Napalm Records but would like to thank them for all their work in the past. Discussions regarding new label partnerships will begin in due course.
Massive thanks to all our fans who have kept the PQ flame burning these past few years and we can’t wait to see you all on the road! The Quest MUST go on!
