The new VIRGIN STEELE Album is truly on schedule! David is literally one day away from completing all mixing and mastering, and I can now honestly tell you with complete confidence that it will be out in September. The name of the album is to be...VISIONS OF EDEN, and it is quite Epic. It is I believe the Group's longest album to date, clocking in at 79 minutes and 57 seconds. We hope you will enjoy it. More information, track listing etc., will appear in the weeks ahead...

Thanks for all your Faith, Support, Belief and Patience!

The New VIRGIN STEELE Album ...
... is almost finished. Mixing commenced several weeks ago, and David is nearly finished with all the tracks. He should have the mixing wrapped up within a week or two, and then he needs a few days more for Mastering. All looks quite promising for an early September release. We will keep you informed.

In related News, David and Edward flew over to Germany last week for a listening session for the new album, with all the key German magazines, and the reaction was extremely positive.

Thanks to you All!

See you soon ...
