He has stated that the new album is about to get into the production stage. Shant is inviting backers to Indiegogo to help fund the production of this new release.

Shant said “Other band members are also likely to join the private stream”. This private streaming and online Q&A stream will be offered to backers only. The crowdfunding campaign offers some very special perks, most of which will be exclusive to backers and only available during the campaign The album has great musicians as a part, like drummer Craig Blundell (Frost*, Steven Wilson), bassist Kristoffer Gildenlöw (ex Pain of Salvation), with the return of special guest Derek Sherinian (ex Dream Theater) on keyboards and other guest musicians who are expected to rock the progressive rock and metal music domain once more.
