MK again!! yay.  :D

I saw them last year in The Stables. I took along an album that already included a signature for Thijs van Leer to add to. He was more than happy to do this and found it highly amusing that "Jan" had beaten him to it!
I am out of the office. Messages can be left with Mr. C Lyons on 020 7722 3333

Sorry, I thought this was a thread about two Newcastle gentlemen begging ladies for intimacy. .... Er, well, yeh. But sounds like the new album will be a good listen. :) Thanks for posting.

Dutch prog legends Focus have announced a new album, 11, which will be released in January. However the new album will be available on the band's November UK tour dates.

When asked about the album, Thijs van Leer responded poetically:

"Wow, my joy could not increase
To see this new release
It has Mazzel, Palindrome and Heaven
Plus a title track called Eleven
Both angelic and a beast
Itís Focus, to say the least!"

The current line-up of Focus, which features Thijs van Leer, Pierre van der Linden, Menno Gootjes and Udo Pannekeet Ė completed the new studio album earlier this year and are debuting the CD edition on their November UK Tour.

The 11 track album will be released as a CD, gatefold coloured LP and Download on the bandís own In And Out of Focus Records, via Cherry Red, in late January. The album features artwork by Roger Dean.

For fans who canít attend the November tour, the only place where the CD can be ordered online (with orders being fulfilled in November 2018) is the bandís own webstore.  For fans wishing to pre-order the CD and LP for when they are released in January, Amazon is starting to take pre-orders now for CD and for album.

Focus will play:
