Ashcroft update

Well...after four months of silence, there's BIG news...I have returned! I've been away and quite busy so thankfully the lack of news has played to my benefit (sad to say).

Seems like Ashcroft is back in the studio.

Here's the scoop: Richard is scheduled to rock out at the NUKE festival in Austria as main support to Coldplay on Sunday July 10, 2005. And the best news of all, Richard's back in the studio.

Check this out! Richard Ashcroft is currently making a solo album at State of the Ark studios and Julian Kershaw has written string arrangements for some of the songs which have recently been recorded by LMO. Strings are featured on 8 songs on the album which also features electric viola on some tracks - played by Bruce White. The engineer / producer was Chris West and the album will be released in the autumn.
