Threshold keyboardist Richard West recently revealed that although the band don't know when a new studio album will be ready, they're currently putting the finishing touches on a new fan club album.
Although he wouldn't be drawn on what was on the album, he did reveal that "it should be the most interesting one we've ever released and I think you'll like it, especially fans who've been with us all the way through."
