»For The Journey« is the successor to the band's 2012 release »March Of Progress« and was produced by guitarist Karl Groom and Richard West at Thin Ice Studios in England. The album was mastered by Mika Jussila (THERION, AMORPHIS) at Finnvox in Finland and will be released on September 22, 2014 via Nuclear Blast.
The new album also marks the band's second release featuring vocalist Damian Wilson since his departure from the band in 1997. In a recent interview with Prog Magazine, Damian spoke about the band's relationship and how easy it was recording the new album: "I think it’s just the fact that we’ve become really good friends and it’s the companionship in the band. We seem to care a lot about each other and we’ve become really close. So we thoroughly enjoy making music together".
Commented West: "»For The Journey« is one of our strongest albums and one of the most enjoyable to make. I've probably heard it a thousand times during the recording process but now that's it's over, I still can't stop listening to it!"
The album artwork was created by Polish Surrealism artist LeszekBujnowski, who the band found on the internet. "He's designed some beautiful pieces and we thought this was a perfect TRESHOLD cover", states West.
