Watch Now: New Music Video "Someone Shall Rise"

Written by Joe Payne. Posted in News

Our latest music video "Someone Shall Rise" is now available to watch on YouTube. The video was filmed at the atmospheric Holy Sepulchre, Northampton - a setting which we felt to be both beautiful and controversial for a song which can be interpreted as illusively spiritual and political. 

You can help us to promote our new album "Dust" by simply sharing this video on your social media pages. Thank you for taking a moment to do this. It really does help us to extend our reach and continue to progress.

If you haven't pre-ordered "Dust" from us yet, it isn't too late to do so. By ordering now you can exclusively stream most of the tracks direct from our website until the official release on Friday 1st April.

Introducing Josh Judd for the "In The Region" Tour

rejuvenating "in the region"

With Robert John Godfrey retiring from The Enid's live shows earlier this year, the band are now busy transforming themselves into a fresh unit of musicians. With Zachary Bullock, Max Read and Joe Payne all now sharing keyboard roles, the songs from the debut album "In the Region of the Summer Stars" have been carefully studied and re-arranged by the new band to ensure that all the parts are accounted for. The end result of this hard work will be a performance which is both sensitive to the original record and equally powerful.

 

The new line up for our upcoming shows is (L-R): Jason Ducker, Josh Judd, Zachary Bullock, Joe Payne, Dave Storey and Max Read.

Introducing Josh Judd

PLEASE WELCOME OUR NEW TALENT ON BASS AND ORCHESTRAL PERCUSSION

When we uploaded our music video for "Someone Shall Rise" back in March, some of you may have noticed a new face. Standing there behind the timpani, a tall fellow with thick floppy hair was playing the bass. His handsome face masked behind wide framed glassed and clever lighting. This mysterious man is no longer a mystery as we unveil him to you now.

Some of you may have already had the pleasure of meeting Josh Judd. For the length of the Dust Tour he was there with us selling merchandise at every show. Charming, hardworking and musically gifted, Josh has proven himself to be an ideal collaborator and friend. 

Once again, we see our good friend Nic Willes fly the nest. He's got a bunch of other projects in the pipeline, and as much as he'd love to commit to us and everything else, he is sadly spread a little too thin for our future plans. So, leaving us on the best of terms, we say a fond goodbye to Nic. Undoubtedly we'll be seeing him make appearances to hang out with us at future shows, and we'll be seeing a lot of him at our Northampton studio.
