The artwork for "Score To A New Beginning" was created by Gonzalo "Genzo" Ordonez, who also did the artwork for the band's last album, "The Fall Of An Empire".

Back in July 2007, Philippe Giordana announced that "Anthony [Parker; guitar], Vincent [Kreyder; drums], Tom [Cesario; guitar, bass] and Max [Leclercq; vocals] decided to leave FAIRYLAND and go on with their own project. The reasons for their departure have not been clearly expressed, and the way they handled the whole business, with direct announcement on FAIRYLAND's forum prior to any kind of discussion with Intromental Management, Napalm Records, Marquee Avalon, Burrn! Corporation or even me, was not very professional. However, it is their decision and I wish them all the luck they will need to make their new project break through."

FAIRYLAND's latest album, "The Fall of an Empire", was released in 2007 via Napalm Records and was accompanied by the reissue of the band's "Of Wars in Osyrhia" debut (2003).
