A big year for Cosmograf.

2013 has been great for Cosmograf.  The Man Left in Space has gained quite a bit of critical acclaim and been featured in a number of ‘best prog release of 2013’ lists, which I’m really pleased about. I got to record BVs for Big Big Train, and Lee Abraham for their albums, and work once again with Nick D’Virgilio, Matt Stevens, and Steve Dunn.

2014 promises to be very interesting and has already got stupidly busy. We were recently voted 3rd in the ‘Tip for 2014’ by PROG magazine and the new album is shaping up very well indeed, and in sight of completion. We’ve got some amazing guests which you may have seen announced elsewhere:  Colin Edwin of Porcupine Tree Fame, Nick Beggs fresh from his stint in the Steven Wilson Band, Nick D’Virgilio once again takes the drum throne, this time playing on the whole album.  Matt Stevens and Steve Dunn again contribute and we also have Andy Tillison from The Tangent.  There’ll doubtless be a few late additions yet…

What can you expect from the new album?

Riffs…loads of the buggers.  Heavier, louder, bigger, more bombastic, more prog . It’s been a ton of fun to write and record.  As ever, a big concept is there, heavily loaded with allegory.  Don’t expect songs about teenage love in rural Provence either. Remember, this is a Cosmograf album 😉

and in other news… We are making our live debut at this years Celebr8.3 on June 1st, at the Islington Assembly Hall,  London. Stay tuned for more info…
