From the official site www.camelproductions.com

THE NATURE OF THE EBEAST DECEMBER 2012


The Next Camel Album

So where is the next Camel album?  Somewhere in the making.  When all was said and done, and the crisis receded, it was time to return to 'normal' life.  We started making plans.  But it turned out to not be there any more, that 'normal' life.  It was, quite simply, totally different.  Of course, the sun rises and sets, the earth revolves on its axis, etc., except life was anything but the way it once was.  When you spend two full years trying to anticipate -- and outwit -- the worst scenario possible, it takes a rather insidious toll.  When the storm passes, it's an involuntary reflex to get right back to business.  We wanted to get Camel back on the road for the Retirement Sucks Tour, write a new album, record a new DVD, just get on with it in general.  But we hadn't grasped one very important aspect of having gone through a life-changing experience:  We are Survivors.  And that, in itself, is life-changing.  What we needed to do was quite the opposite of our grand plans, and was something that just happened without our really knowing.  Survivors need to exhale deeply and learn to inhale without the imposition of dread.  Unexpectedly, we needed time to recover from the battle itself.  Finally, we're ready for the challenges ahead.

Excellent!!  I didn't think they'd ever be able to pull it together again.  I wish them the best of luck.  I've been following them since I was a kid, and the thought that it isn't over after all has just given me a little mood lift.

LOL at "Retirement Sucks Tour".

Glad to see that they are back in the swing of things. They have always been a personal favorite of mind and I would hate to see them simply disappear.

I saw Camel several times in the 70s - both the original and the Sinclair/Collins line up.
 
They were unforgettable. They made some of the best music ever recorded. And their 90s/900s output was also top notch.
 
I just hope we're not raising our hopes unjustifiably but I've a feeling we may not be. I can't wait.
I have many faults. Being wrong is not one of them.

I didn't know that and I'm so happy to hear about it. I always thought their last two albums was their best albums since Nude. Big smile

There are few bands, if any, that I like as much as Camel.

With so many greats passing away last year it is fantastic to hear that Andy Latimer has emerged from the proverbial jaws and is getting back to the music he does so well.  Can't wait to hear what comes next, and I pray they will be able to hit NorCal sometime soon.

I believe Andy is based in the S.F. Bay Area.  At least he used to be.  Not sure if he's up to a tour, however.

great news all round.  I don't think Andy and Susan would be communicating this unless they were pretty confident.  Another chapter of the amazing story begins

But for now let's just savour Andy's 2010 'comeback' performance (guitar solo & vocals) on 'Masquerade', the opening track from the album "Random Acts of Beauty" by David Minasian:

I believe Andy and Susan moved back to UK sometime during Andy's recovering process, I think I remember such a thing being mentioned in one of the previous newsletters.

From the official site www.camelproductions.com\ 


Camel's Farewell Tour is a splendid memory.


So much so, we are now discussing the possibilities for the 'Retirement Sucks' tour in September or October 2013.

Please check back from time to time.
