The rock opera is progressing really well and Chris estimate it will be finished this year (in terms of composing). So we can expect it to be launched some time during 2016. The compositions are getting stronger with each new contribution and if it becomes a success, the band will be busy for a long time performing the rock opera. And once that is done, it will of course take time before another new regular album is out and a tour will follow that. So when an offer came up from a promoter to do a European Best Of tour in January, it felt like a good idea to pick up the opportunity to play some classics, so the band won’t loose contact with the fans meanwhile.
