• 10 new songs recorded at Outhouse Studios by renowned producer John Mitchell (You Me At Six, Lower Than Atlantis, Funeral For A Friend), and is the follow-up to 2011’s Top 40 “The City Sleeps” (9/10 in Classic Rock), 2009’s acclaimed “Wintercoast” (which featured a cameo from Oscar winning actor Jeremy Irons) and “Discordant Dreams” (2007).

• On this eagerly awaited, very much guitar-orientated new album, Touchstone continue their “Wintercoast” storyline with the dynamic, moving epic title track, ‘Oceans Of Time’, the sequel to the title tracks of both “Wintercoast” and “The City Sleeps”. Another familiar theme comes from ‘Shadow’s End’, the final part of the “Shadow” trilogy, which started with the track ‘Shadow’, from “Discordant Dreams”.

• The album was written and arranged at the band’s Hemel HQ (where they share rehearsal space with The Darkness!), with the whole process filmed for a future “making of” DVD.

• See them on tour in October with Finland’s Von Hertzen Brothers; Oct 18 King Tut’s, Glasgow, Oct 19 The Duchess, York, Oct 20 The Globe, Cardiff, Oct 25 The Garage, London, Oct 26 Eric’s Live, Liverpool and Oct 27 The Robin 2, Wolverhampton, with more dates planned in 2014 for USA and Europe.

• Jeff Wayne (War Of The Worlds) “stunning, passionate music, wonderful singing”

• Geoff Barton (Classic Rock) “might just be the two best commercial-sounding prog tunes written in the last 10 years”

• Jerry Ewing (Prog) “the ideal band to kick-start High Voltage… they’re definitely a band going places”

• A special radio edit of the opening track ‘Flux’ [HNEDD015] will be released as the lead single on 9th September.
