Just received the follwing from F2/Progrock.co.uk:
 
Hello, and welcome to another update from progrock.co.uk - the home of
Progressive Rock!

SOLSTICE

We are extremely pleased to announce the signing of Solstice to F2 Music. A
personal favourite of mine since the very early 80's, Solstice were part of
a thriving Prog scene in the UK, alongside Marillion, Pallas, IQ, Pendragon
& Twelfth Night, bringing strong folk influences into their melodic
progressive rock sound. Superb electric violin and guitar was the centre
piece of this excellent band. And the great news is that Solstice will be
playing live again later this year before going in to the studio to work on
a NEW Solstice CD for 2008!

In the meantime we will be releasing 'definitive' versions of the band's
three studio CD's - 'Silent Dance', 'New Life' and 'Circles' - with brand
new artwork and booklets, and each with a bonus CD containing rare demos
and special live tracks. The bonus discs will include all those previously
released on the very hard to find Solstice compilation CD 'Pathways', plus
even more! We will be sure to let you know when they are available! See the
'Digital Downloads' news item below to

Solstice is:

Andy Glass - guitar and vocals
Emma Brown - vocals
Jenny Newman - violin and vocals
Steve McDaniel - keyboards
Robin Phillips - bass
Pete Hemsley - drums

At the signing, Andy Glass said 'we are delighted to be entering into this
creative partnership and we are full of hope for the future'. Excellent
news indeed, and welcome back Solstice!

----

DIGITAL DOWNLOADS!

We have launched our digital download shop on http://www.progrock.co.uk - www.progrock.co.uk ! All of
the Solstice studio tracks from their three CD's, plus all of the tracks
from their Cropredy 'live in the studio' CD are available to download at
great prices! The rare demos and special live tracks will not be available
as downloads, and will only be available on the bonus discs with the
re-released CD's coming soon! More digital downloads will be added very
soon!

and featuring a host of great musicians including Rachel Jones (ex
Karnataka), Matthew Cohen (ex Magenta) and a guest guitar solo by Steve
Rothery (of Marillion). If you are a fan, then you will probably like a CD

EZRA PRESS RELEASE

Ezra are pleased to welcome Chris Jones (guitar) and Gareth Hill

have ditched the sequencer and replaced it with real people. Those of you
who have followed us over the years will have seen various line-ups of the
band, some with keyboards some with sequencer, but it's the first time
we've had another guitarist in the band. There are plenty of guitar parts
on the albums that we can now play live for the first time. This now makes
Ezra a seven piece! Both have fitted into the band perfectly and played
their first performance on 23/04/2007 supporting Peter Banks (ex Yes).

----

PROG ROCK ON THE RADIO!

progrock.co.uk are proud to sponsor a new online radio show - Paul Baker's
excellent Progressive Soundscapes show (until recently on arfm.co.uk).

station which has just gone online. Make sure you tune in to hear some
excellent music. The Progressive Soundscapes show will go out from 2pm to
5pm every Sunday.

----

MAGENTA FANS!

If you are a fan of Magenta, as well as buying the new single 'Speechless',
you may also be interested in some of the other projects that Rob Reed, the
main man behind Magenta, has previously been involved in, as well as some
other members of Magenta!

guitarist with Magenta, and includes Rob Reed on keyboards, and Tim
Robinson on drums.

Hello, and welcome to another update from progrock.co.uk - the home of
Progressive Rock!


NEW STOCK / PRE-ORDERS

1. Magenta - 'The Singles' - GBP 9.99 [Due in stock: 21/05/2007]
Contains 14 tracks consisting of every song that has made up the band's
four EP/singles. Eight of these tracks have been specially re-recorded
exclusively for this release, and none of them have been available on a
full length CD before. Total running time 79 minutes. Rob Reed explains the
decision to release the album: "Most of these songs have been an important
part of Magenta's live set for several years now and they have evolved as
the band has performed them live.  We felt it was time to record and
release definitive versions with our current line up, which includes Dan
Fry on bass.  We hope that fans of the band that have our three albums, but
have not yet had the chance to hear these songs, will enjoy this equally
important aspect of the band's music. However, we hope that those that
already have some of this material will appreciate how these songs have
evolved over time and that you all love the new versions". Included on the
CD is Night and Day (originally recorded with Annie Haslam) which features
a complete lead vocal from Christina for the first time, plus Sunshine
Saviour, a new piece adapted from Children of the Sun from the band's first
album Revolutions. The three bonus tracks contain an additional 25 minutes

THE PROGROCK CHARTS!

For seven weeks now, the debut CD by The Reasoning called 'Awakening' has
been our number one best seller. Featuring a host of great musicians
including Rachel Jones (ex Karnataka), Matthew Cohen (ex Magenta) and a
guest guitar solo by Steve Rothery (of Marillion), it's easy to see why! If
you are a fan, then you will probably like a CD that Matthew's previous
band Erasmus released called 'Voyage'. It features a brief vocal
performance by Christina (Magenta) and includes Rob Reed (Magenta) on
keyboards. A bargain at just GBP 8.00!

However, the competition is growing with the release of some excellent CD's
/ DVD's recently, including the new Magenta 'Singles' album, the new CD
'Primitive' by excellent Italian band The Watch, the Porcupine Tree CD
'Fear Of A Blank Planet and two excellent releases from the Inside Out
label, Kaipa - Angling Feeling and Beardfish - Sleeping in Traffic: Part
One. What a great Prog summer we will have!!

coming bands of the genre at the moment!

RITUAL - The Hemulic Voluntary Band - GBP 9.99
With 'The Hemulic Voluntary Band' Ritual, featuring Kaipa singer Patrik
Lundstrom, have recorded their most adventurous album to date. This fourth

Following an extended creative hiatus, this influential prog act return  
with a new studio album. The album forges an atmospheric arch to the band's

Crimson, etc!

5. PROGROCK.CO.UK ON THE ROAD

We apologise for not being at the Mostly Autumn gig at the Robin, Bilston
on 08/06/2007 as promised. Unfortunately the band refused to let us sell
any CD's at the concert (nothing to do with the venue) - a real shame
considering we have been promoting their latest CD through the
progrock.co.uk web site for the last few months! Also, I know a lot of you
have asked why we don't attend the Classic Rock Society gigs any more with
our stall. Unfortunately we have been told that we are not allowed to sell
CD's there either! Our whole purpose is to help promote prog rock wherever,
whenever we can, so if you know of any other venues that you would like to
see us at, please let us know, we would love to be there!

3. OTHER NEW RELEASES

We have now received a promo copy of both the new Flower Kings and the
Riverside CD's, and they are excellent! Pre-order now (released 01/10/2007)
- you really won't be disappointed! The Riverside CD in particular is a
favourite at the moment here at progrock.co.uk!

FLOWER KINGS - THE SUM OF NO EVIL - GBP 9.99 (standard CD) / GBP 11.99
(special edition)
Also available as a standard single CD release or a special edition
digipack which includes a bonus CD with 4 audio tracks and a 'making of'
documentary from the recording studio! The Sum Of No Evil' is a true return
to form for the Flower Kings. There are no experiments this time around and
the result is true Flower Kings music and their best album for a long time!


RIVERSIDE - RAPID EYE MOVEMENT - GBP 9.99 (standard CD) / GBP 11.99
(special edition)
Also available as a standard single CD release or a special edition
digipack which includes a bonus CD.
Riverside's music can best be described as a cross between atmospheric Pink
Floyd and Porcupine Tree, mixed up with modern metal elements. Their sound
is fresh and authentic and they are without a doubt one of THE up and
coming bands of the genre at the moment!

RITUAL - The Hemulic Voluntary Band - GBP 9.99
With 'The Hemulic Voluntary Band' Ritual, featuring Kaipa singer Patrik
Lundstrom, have recorded their most adventurous album to date. This fourth
studio album harks back to Ritual's self-titled debut from 1995 which is
still highly praised within prog circles. A must for fans of Kaipa, Flower
Kings, etc!

SIEGES EVEN - PARAMOUNT - GBP 9.99
Following an extended creative hiatus, this influential prog act return
with a new studio album. The album forges an atmospheric arch to the band's
beginnings back in the late eighties, documenting the topicality of their
music at the same time. For fans of Kansas, Peter Gabriel, Yes, King
Crimson, etc!
