Until recently, The Gift were regarded by those in the know as ‘the best kept secret’ in progressive rock. Back in 2006, their first album ‘Awake And Dreaming’ wowed the ‘Prognoscenti’ with its heady mixture of ‘70s style and contemporary soundscapes. Then there was silence...until the band reformed a few years ago. Originally signed to Cyclops Records, the band joined the ever growing Bad Elephant Music roster in 2013. Then their long-awaited second album “Land of Shadows” emerged on the 5th of May 2014. It was another ambitious song suite packed with strong melodies, incisive lyrics and instrumental ‘tours de force’. The album took the listener on a true musical journey with tracks like “The Comforting Cold”, an ambitious epic about the near-death experience. As vocalist and songwriter Mike Morton said upon its release: “Don’t come to us for songs about cars and girls.”
