In between Invicta and Dust, parts 2 & 3 of the Journey's End trilogy, came The Bridge. Though they had revisited/reworked and rerecorded pre-existing material on Shining with the full force of the Journey's End line up, with Payne replacing Godfrey's vocals or adding his own lyrics to tracks which were previously instrumental, Robert John Godfrey and Joe Payne wished to explore the classical elements of the band's music in more detail.
his album is the result of that exploration; a stripped down, reflective affair; essentially piano, vocals and orchestrations, accompanied by Jason Ducker's symphonic guitar textures and Max Read's choral arrangements. The Bridge was initially to be the first in a new trilogy of albums, however with 2016 waving its wand of change over The Enid's planned trajectory, this may remain a standalone album.
