Entitled “The Great Divide”, ENCHANT’s 8th studio album will be released on September 29th, 2014 in Europe and on September 30th, 2014 in North America via the band’s longtime label partner InsideOutMusic.
ENCHANT’s main songwriter and guitarist Douglas A. Ott had the following to say about the upcoming release:
"Well it's finally here folks! There was a time when I was unsure of ENCHANT’s future but fear not!
We've made another album after 10 years and we are very excited and proud of this endeavor!
Our new album is called The Great Divide and we can't wait for you to hear it! 9 brand new ENCHANT tracks, including 1 instrumental. Classic ENCHANT but with a bunch of new twists and turns! Long time in the making but it is surely worth the wait! Coming out late September, so be sure to check it out!"
