Lifesigns released their debut CD to great acclaim in January 2013 and have since been number 1 in Amazon classic rock and prog charts in the U.K., U.S.A., Canada, Germany, France, Italy and Japan. CD sales show little sign of abating and as such the demand for Lifesigns to tour has continued to grow.
Lifesigns were nominated this year by PROG Magazine for their best newcomer award. They came 5th in the PROG readers poll of things to look forward to in 2014.
Lifesigns have just played at Cruise to the Edge (with Yes) in the USA, which was superbly received, and further festival appearances are planned in the USA and Europe for both 2014 and 2015.
A European tour will take place in September and October with further U.K. dates being added.
Recent shows at the Assembly Leamington, The Stables Milton Keynes and The Robin 2 were a great success and the band have been invited to return.
Lifesigns have just been nominated to the Hall of Fame at the Belmont Rock School and Conservatoire in Switzerland and will be attending the graduation ceremony in June.
Lifesigns are signed to Esoteric Records who are a subsidiary of Cherry Red Records.
Lifesigns were Cherry Red's biggest selling artist for the first half of 2013.

The origins of Third Quadrant lie in the 80's neo-prog scene but since the turn of the century they have been rebuilding their presence through live performances and in 2016 the release of a new album re:generator.
They are a force to be reckoned with live - featuring 2 keyboardists, Chris Dunn and Clive Mollart, who create epic orchestral structures and sweeping soundscapes, augmented by Shaun Bailey on guitars, Dave Forster on Bass and Chris Hare on drums. They generate immense power and musical presence on stage
Recent shows have seen them supporting Focus at the Robin 2 and playing directly before Arthur Brown (of the Crazy World) on the main stage at HRH4 Prog festival with more festival dates lined up for later in 2016.
