The GH website ( http://www.glasshammer.com/ - www.glasshammer.com ) is now accepting pre-orders for autographed copies of "IF" which releases on 9/14/10. 

Babb and Schendel are back with a brand new lineup and an album of epic-length prog tracks. The 2010 release “IF” marks the band’s return to classic symphonic-progressive rock; an album sure to please fans of the group’s earlier releases Chronometree, Lex Rex and The Inconsolable Secret. Pipe organs, Hammond solos, Moogs, Mellotrons – all the trademark sounds are back in place.

But “IF” is no simple rehashing of previous Glass Hammer efforts. With the addition of vocalist Jon Davison, jazz-rock guitarist Alan Shikoh and session drummer Randall Williams, Glass Hammer co-founders Steve Babb and Fred Schendel have “hit the reset button” and taken their music to an entirely new level.

The sixty-six minute opus features six tracks, culminating in the twenty-four minute long “If The Sun”, mastering by the legendary Bob Katz of Digital Domain, and stunning art-work by German designer Tom Kuhn.

Got it last week and am about half way through the first run.  Will need a few more spins to form a true opinion but the new female singer sounds almost exactly like Jon Anderson.   I think its a dude cause his name is Jon as well but its hard to tell.
