Dear all,
just to let you know that our new album "In-Between" is finished. The album will be release worldwide in March 2012 (labels: Quixote Records/Progrock Records USA) and will feature nine original songs and one cover: a new version of Beggars Opera's 'Time Machine' featuring my dad,  Martin Griffiths (vocals: Beggars Opera),  and me on the vocals.  If you'd like to listen to a selection of tracks and a full song (the album's opener, Arabesque), check out our myspace site:

The songs are more in tune with our first album, "Field of Names" when it comes to a strong focus on melody and diversity. Let me know what you think - more news on how to order the album etc coming soon!
All the best,
Phil Griffiths

Nice touch with the Beggar's Opera cover. That's a great song from a fine album.

Agreed - it's still on quite a few top 100 German radio lists. We just felt that it'd be nice to remind people what a great song it really is ;-) And it was great fun recording with dad!
All the best, Phil

ProgRock Records and QuiXote-Music  are proud to announce Alias Eye’s latest studio album, ‘In-Between’.  A return to the melody-driven arrangements of their debut, ‘Field of Names’, while retaining the heaviness of the band’s third effort, ‘In Focus’. 'In-Between' highlights Alias Eye's approach to songwriting: strong vocal hooklines are paired with lavish choir arrangements and meticulously arranged instrumental passages. From the oriental flair of the opening track, ‘Arabesque’, to the mellow, bitter-sweet lament of the ballad ‘Stars Shall Fall’ and the heavy guitar riffs of ‘Indentured Pride’, ‘In Between’ is a truly progressive journey through a variety of different styles and genres.

Alongside nine original songs, the album includes a new rendition of Beggars Opera’s classic hit ‘Time Machine’, featuring Martin Griffiths (Beggars Opera) and his son, Alias Eye’s singer Philip Griffiths, on the vocals.

Shawn Gordon, President of ProgRock Records had this to say, “Alias Eye was one of the very first acts we worked with when we started out and I’m always interested in their releases, so getting to combine that with our QuiXote-Music partnership made perfect sense.”.

Philipp Jaehne, President of QuiXote-Music  and keyboardist of Poor Genetic Material adds, "We were quite pleased with the results of working with Shawn on the release of the Poor Genetic Material album Island Noises, so it only made sense to do it again.".

“In Between” is available for immediate pre-ordering with a $2 discount during the pre-sale period at http://www.therecordlabel.net/progressive-rock/alias-eye/in-between/ and will ship in mid January 2012 and be available at retail worldwide on March 8, 2012.

Best Regards,
Shawn Gordon
President
