"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair…"  - Charles Dickens

Since the beginning of the decade and with massive help from the fans, the band released three major studio albums, performed with a world-famous symphony orchestra (CBSO), toured in Europe, the USA and Japan, and found a vocalist who would lead the band in a different direction. RJG won the Visionary Award in the Progressive Music Awards.

Against all this, RJG was diagnosed with early Alzheimer’s and decided to retire; the band fought and won a costly series of court battles against Gerald Palmer’s music companies; lost the vocalist; found Dominic Tofield.

Says RJG; "Now The Enid are three young lives building on a rich and abundant past, living and doing music fulltime together. They have years ahead of them to mature and grow. There is no rush. The world is in flux and so is The Enid”



With the band beginning the year as a three piece with an upfront sound and an in-your-face live approach, it’s the right time to transform the website. Designed by Dominic Tofield & Max Read, the new website contains all about the band, past and present, and future.


The private Enidi Members page hosts the entire back catalogue, as well as the brand-new Enidi TV player. Enidi TV features exclusive members only content not available on YouTube, with short documentaries on the band’s progress in the studio, interviews and “Life at the Lodge”, and will be regularly updated.

First up is The Enid’s 2016 Review of the Year documentary, made by our in-house filmmaker, Duncan McLaughlan.


Resurgency is on the brink of completion. A new vision of music from the Journey’s End Trilogy.

Later in the year sees the release of Tempest, an album of brand new recordings (a work in progress)

We can also announce “Robert John Godfrey & The Enid - 70th Birthday Concert”, at Union Chapel, London on Sat August 5th.  More details to follow. Tickets on sale soon.


All in all, 2016 was a year of immense change for the Enid. The many challenges faced by the band have been overcome and we thank you all for your continued support and hope you will stick with us in 2017.

This is the only life we know. Wish us luck in a suddenly brave new world.
