To pre-order English Electric or for more information about the album, including a new promotional film, please go to our website: www.bigbigtrain.com

OTHER NEWS

The band has had a busy year and there have been a number of other CD and download releases.

A new 10 minute track called Kingmaker featured on the import and iTunes version of the Far Skies Deep Time EP released in August 2011 (Kingmaker replaced Master of Time which was on the original version of the EP.)

We have a limited supply of the import version of Far Skies Deep Time available for sale on our website.

Kingmaker is also available to listen to or to buy as an individual download in high quality audio at:

http://bigbigtrain.bandcamp.com/track/kingmaker

In April last year, we re-issued our first album, Goodbye to the Age of Steam. Originally released in 1994, the re-issued version was completely remixed from the original master tapes and features three bonus tracks and new artwork.

Goodbye to the Age of Steam and our other releases are available at our website where you can also find links to our Amazon stores and download shop.

Finally, we are hoping to play some gigs in the next year or two and we will keep you posted of any news.

Best wishes

Andy, Dave, David, Greg and Nick

I wish they would use half-decent artwork.

It's boring, ugly, and uninspired.

Not their best cover, though. I this must have something to do with the concept, otherwise i'll be terribly disappointed (with the cover).

Dude, what would an over-sized Yeti know about art???Wink

I agree with Horizons, poor album art. They should take a page from The Flower Kings and go a bit more
classy.  All that vague modern art crap is better suited for wandering avant-guard bands, whose music goes
nowhere, now that I think of it...

Big Big Train should check out the new RUSH or YES records for some inspiration for album art.

Indeed. I love this band!

The shirts are quite disappointing though.
