New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Galahad Official Website) UK Progressive Rock Ensemble Galahad Releases Highly Anticipated New CD 'Battle Scars''Battle Scars' is the new studio album from established English progressive rock band Galahad just released on Avalon Records. The CD was recorded, engineered and mixed by Karl Groom (Threshold) at Thin Ice studios. 'Battle Scars', Galahad's seventh studio album, shows the band evolving from their well received and critically acclaimed 2007 album 'Empires Never Last'. 'Battle Scars' is the first of two new albums from Galahad scheduled for release this year.

'Battle Scars' contains a myriad of styles from rock and prog through to techno, ambient and dance sounds via classical arrangements. Throughout, the production is modern and pristine, incorporating powerful, direct guitar riffs, lush keyboard arrangements and occasional quieter passages of subtle beauty, melding together to create an often massively epic sound. "I guess the whole gamut are in there," explains vocalist and founding member Stuart Nicholson about the album's variety of themes, "frustration, anger, disbelief, reflection, the acceptance of reality, fighting spirit against the odds, hope for the future, negativity, positivity and more besides."

'Battle Scars' is Galahad music for the 21st Century: very much looking forward but also showing occasional and affectionate nods to the analogue past.

In recognition of the band's 25 year plus history, a new recording of their classic song "Sleepers" is included as a bonus track on the CD and download version. "I think the whole package works really well," says Stuart, "the monochrome graphics and images with the odd splash of red here and various pieces of pertinent imagery match the atmosphere of the music perfectly."

As always, the proof of the pudding is in the listening, as the band suggests: "Go on, give it a whirl, leave your preconceptions at the door and play it loud! We know it's our best album yet, and hope you agree."

Galahad's 'Battle Scars' is available on CD, digital download and limited edition high quality 180gm vinyl LP in a gatefold sleeve.

In closing Stuart Nicholson had this to impart to Galahad's devoted fans of many years: "I hope you like what we have come up with, and if you know us well you'll realize that we try and make each album different from the previous one, but still include certain Galahad traits. Plus, I'd like to thank all those who have shown patience and stuck with us - it is greatly appreciated by the band."
