ENCHANT Signs With INSIDEOUT MUSIC

ENCHANT, the long-running San Francisco Bay Area long progressive rock band, has inked a new longterm worldwide deal with its perennial label partner, InsideOut Music. The group is currently writing and demoing material for a new album, tentatively due in early 2013.

Originally founded in 1989 and with seven studio albums under their belts, ENCHANT's last official release was the "Live At Last" 2CD/2DVD set, which came out in 2004.

"It's been way too long!" says Douglas A. Ott, main songwriter and guitarist of ENCHANT. "We had to take time off from ENCHANT because a lot was going on in all of our lives. Divorces, marriages, kids, separations... finally the band is stable again and ready to get going on the new album!"

Ott adds, "Everyone is really excited and looking forward to the process again. I'm currently doing preproduction and putting together demos of the new material and very shortly I'll start recording the real tracks. We're taking our time and really focusing on the writing and arranging of this new material."

Thomas Waber, founder and label manager of InsideOut Music, comments on the return of ENCHANT: "InsideOut Music as a label has a long history with ENCHANT and I am very happy that they are making a new album right now. Hopefully we can add many more fond memories to the relationship! It's great to have them back!"

ENCHANT vocalist Ted Leonard (SPOCK'S BEARD, THOUGHT CHAMBER) recently made an appearance on on AFFECTOR's debut album, "Harmagedon", out now on InsideOut Music.
