Today marks the second anniversary of the Reforge The Steel line-up of the band being formed. Shortly after the release of the A Crisis of Faith album the members from that line-up swiftly departed leaving the bands future in the balance.
Fortunately, members were recruited in relatively quick succession with Liam Etheridge joining in mid-April with Toby Woods and Isaac Healy following in May. The band played their first gig together on May 26th 2018 and have since gone on to play 43 gigs together having played major venues such as Portman Road, Colchester Arts Centre and The Dome in London.
In 2019 the band released a brand-new album called Reforge The Steel they began recording in late 2018 just a few months after the formation of the new line-up. They also released the live album and DVD Kaine X from the bands 10-year anniversary performance at Colchester Arts Centre. There is a new EP and Live Album also in the works from the line-up as well as plans for another full-length album.
