New Live Video Available Now

Written by Joe Payne. Posted in Enid News

The Enid Crescendo 2014Just in time for Christmas, we are really pleased to announce The Enid's first official Live Concert Video release since Birmingham Town Hall in 2010. This will also be the first live footage released since the arrival of Joe Payne in 2011. 

To our joy and surpise, we were recently informed by the organisers of French Progressive Rock Festival CRESCENDO that a local film maker had filmed our entire performance last August. We were totally unaware of the cameras at the time, but having now seen the footage we are blown away by the film's quality.

Luckily for us we had invested in a new self monitoring system this year which allows us to do multi-track recordings of our shows. This has taken some getting used to, but our performance at Crescendo happens to have been recorded by us with no technical difficulties. Therefore we have been able to combine our High Quality audio with the HD video edit from SKOP Art Films to provide a wonderful concert experience for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home. Max has just completed mixing the soundtrack in 5.1 Surround and it's sounding amazing. We have put up some preview clips for you to enjoy on YouTube. Please CLICK HERE to watch.

In production now, both on DVD and Blu-Ray, The Enid en Concert á Crescendo will be coming to you on Monday 8th December.

The Bridge

Written by Max Read. Posted in Enid News

 The Bridge - 440 x 400


We are please to announce the release of our long awaited album of classical music, The Bridge.

The Bridge - A musical allegory.

“Bridging the gap between the arts and entertainment; the shallow and the deep; the brash and the sensitive. A place where history meets the future. A plea for open mindedness, tolerance and natural justice at a time when the world is sleep walking into the unknowable.” Robert John Godfrey

The Bridge album, with artwork conceived and designed by Dominic Tofield,  will be released on the 12th January 2015, ahead of The Bridge Tour taking place in January through to March 2015.


Pre-ordering this album will help us to invest in next year's shows, which will be our most ambitious yet. We are already working hard to prepare for The Bridge Tour, and every album you order directly from us provides us with the much needed financial support needed to pull off something so daring. For us, this is the day job. Every path is a make or break.

Please CLICK HERE to pre-order your copy of The Bridge.

Those who order The Bridge by the 1st December 2014 will be named and thanked in a special booklet, to be included within the Digipak. An additional 'Thank You Track' will also be included, exclusive to the first batch of pressings. 

The Bridge Show


Union Chapel low resDue to circumstances beyond our control, the bridge show at the Hazlitt Theatre in Maidstone will not be going ahead. We apologise for any disappointment caused.

However, for every door that closes another one opens. We decided immediately that the best course of action should be to do the final production of The Bridge in a London venue. We thought very hard and contacted some of our favourite seated venues, knowing that the chance of us finding something at such short notice would be a fine thing. 

It is with great joy that we can confirm The Enid will be performing The Bridge at The Union Chapel, Islington, London in March 2015! 

We were very lucky to secure this wonderful venue with such short notice. It is the perfect setting for The Enid's music, and what a beautiful place for us to do our last performance of The Bridge Show.

Please bear with us while we get the final details together. We will be making an official announcement shortly.
