Glen Drover, Jim Gilmour: hard at work on new album

Glen Drover has started the initial editing of songs for the next GLEN DROVER BAND album. He says, "We have a bunch of really cool material from Jim [Gilmour, keyboards], Paul [Yee, bass] and myself that I'm very excited about.

"This album will most likely continue down the same path of style as [last year's] 'Metalusion', but will also have more 'metal'-style songs this time around.

"The recording process should start within the next month or two, and hopefully have a new album ready sometime later in the year.. I'm also happy to say that Chris Sutherland is back on drums. We had some personal issues, which led to us deciding that we should part last summer, but just recently, Chris and I met up and had a nice talk (we both teach at MWI in Toronto) and seemed to have ironed out our issues and decided that we really need to get back together and carry on with the next album. It was very clear after seeing a lot of the video footage of the webcast DVD I was telling you about earlier, that we have a really good chemistry and want to forge ahead and see if we can move forward without anything get in our way this time around.

"As far as the recording process, we spent a long time on the last album, not necessarily working consistently on the album, but also doing a lot of reflecting on the songs, making sure the songs were going in the right direction, and would grow on us over a period of time, which they all did. We will probably continue with the same process, as it seemed to work great last time around. more
