Hi there all Progressive Rock fans.

I am delighted to announce that Irish Neo-Prog band WINTER have now released updated versions of the tracks from ACROSS THE CIRCLE'S EDGE on iTunes, Amazon and other digital download outlets.

See www.winteronline.co.uk for all the details.

We are considering releasing a CD version of these updated songs which may well include some previously unreleased material.

Spread the word ..

cheers

Phil Murray


Winter - Across The Circles Edge (beyond 2012)

Performed by;
Johnathan Lennie: Vocals / Lyrics
John Murphy: Drums
Philip Murray: Keyboards / Piano
Rab Beggs: Guitars
Richard Loyer: Bass Guitar

Across The Circle’s Edge was released on their own label, Circle’s Edge Records, in August 1990 in vinyl format, this was a 6 track E.P. The recordings were engineered by superb musician and producer, Lawrence Thomson and recorded at Level One Studios, Newtownards and Dove Studios, Belfast. It was re-released by SI Records, Holland in 1992 in CD format.

Beyond 2012
In January 2012, an updated digital version of Across The Circle’s Edge was released which included the additional keyboards by Philip Murray which had been omitted from the original recording.

WINTER Biography:


Winter were an Irish progressive rock / metal band who received critical acclaim for their live performances in the 1980s and 1990s, combining fine musicianship, based around creating hard rock, multi-layered melodies, with Johnny Lennie’s flamboyant stage presence and clever lyricism. They were formed in 1987, based in Newtownards, Co.Down and the original line up stayed together until 1991.    

Winter circa 1990

Their debut E.P. titled Across The Circle’s Edge was released in both Vinyl format (by Circle’s Edge records in 1990) and in CD format (by SI Records in 1992). This E.P. has become something of a collectors item among some progressive rock fans. In January 2012, an updated digital version of Across The Circle’s Edge was released which included the additional keyboards by Philip Murray which had been omitted from the original recording.

I reviewed the album a while ago. It is a good album. But it is much more Neo- Prog than Prog Metal.

I notice that we have this listed as an album, not an EP, and the release date shown as 1992. Can you confirm that we need to correct these things Phil?
 
Thanks!Big smile

Thanks Easy Livin,

Strictly speaking Across The Circle's Edge is an E.P. [6 tracks].

I registered it [the updated version of the tracks that is] with iTunes, Amazon an other digital media outlets as an E.P.
They seem to have it listed as an album so far I think. I also created new cover artwork for this current release which you can see at www.winteronline.co.uk

The original vinyl release was in 1990 and the subsequent CD version was in 1992. This digital version was released on 19th Jan 2012 and comprises the same songs but has additional keyboard parts added [which had been omitted back in 1990 and 1992 due to time restrictions in the studio]

let me know if there is anything else you need and thanks again - we're just trying to get the word out there about this updated release really.

cheers

Phil

Any chance of the band getting back together and recording a new album?

hi SouthSide,

Thanks - Well it's very unlikely really as we are all doing different things these days and some of the guys are no longer involved in the music business.

But I am considering releasing a CD version of Across The Circle's Edge (beyond 2012) in the next few months, that would also include some live recordings of songs that have previously not been released.

cheers

Phil
