About The Event
Multi Story’s new album titled “CBF10″ is an exciting and natural progression from our 2016 studio release, “Crimson Stone”. “Crimson Stone” was always purposely designed to be a bridging album from our 80’s neo-prog days to the new millennium and we are delighted that it was well received by both fans and critics alike.
We now have a refreshed and powerful line up of band members including, of course, the band’s founders, Rob Wilsher and Paul Ford.
Our new faces are Simon Rogers (Also Eden, Ghost Community), Chris Norman and Adji.
“CBF10” will be released early in 2020 and our live concerts will feature the lion’s share of this album and also popular songs from our previous recordings.
The MULTI STORY live CBF10 tour…..
Multi Story will be once again be hitting the road and performing concerts and festivals throughout the UK in 2020 and we’re delighted that the 1865 Southampton venue is one of them on 28th June 2020
The “CRIMSON STONE ” album tour was a great success and during 2017-2018 Multi Story performed at many Concerts and Festivals including: HRH Progressive Rock Festival, Winter’s End Progressive Rock Festival, Cambridge Rock Festival, Classic Rock Society concerts including the final Classic Rock Society Awards night.
The conclusion of the tour resulted in a Live Double Album being recorded in the intimate surroundings of Acapela Studios titled: “MULTI STORY Live at Acapela”
Formed in 1990 and celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2020, Landmarq are a UK-based ‘neo-progressive’ rock band. The band have an extensive catalogue having so far released a total of ten albums, four of which were recorded live at various concerts in the UK and elsewhere in Europe, plus two official concert DVD’s filmed in Poland (2006) and The Netherlands (2015).
Following an enforced break in 2009, due to ill-health, Landmarq re-emerged on to the Prog scene early in 2012 with the release of their eagerly-anticipated fifth studio album, “Entertaining Angels”, a Special Edition double-CD set. This proved to be a triumphant return for the band as they received many glowing reviews from fans and music press alike. This was followed up with “Angels On Tour”, a series of live dates through 2012-2013.
More new product was released throughout 2014/15, including the vinyl release of “Entertaining Angels” (a double-LP set). Also, a long-awaited compilation album entitled “Origins – A Landmarq Anthology – 1992-2014″ (2-CD set) featuring vocalists Tracy Hitchings and Damian Wilson. “Origins” includes a brand new song, also entitled “Origins”.
A major change of line-up then occurred in 2018 when, due to relocation in both cases, vocalist Tracy Hitchings and drummer Danny Martin separately made the difficult decisions to move on from Landmarq. Guitarist Uwe D’rose, keyboardist Mike Varty and bassist Steve Gee resolved to continue writing new material for a proposed new album whilst also beginning the search for Tracy’s and Danny’s replacements. Following a series of auditions, the band settled once again back to full strength with the addition of new vocalist Wolf Campen and drummer Andy Allen who were thrust straight into a series of intensive rehearsals in preparation for a series of live shows.
Landmarq have since made a welcome return to the stage with some superb performances including the Summer’s End Progressive Rock Festival 2018 and a hugely successful night with Atomic Rooster at the Dagenham Roundhouse (2019), plus shows for The Classic Rock Society and at The 1865, all of which have received excellent reviews and comments.
The band are now in the process of recording the new album and are looking forward to more live shows in 2019-20, including The 1865.
