The Enid to return to The Apex...

The world’s foremost symphonic rock band will be making a welcome return to Bury St Edmunds. The Enid will bring their latest show to The Apex on Friday 5 February.

In support of their ambition to produce visually spectacular live shows the group have been taking directions from illusionist, Simon Drake, best known for his work on Channel 4’s Secret Cabaret but also recognised for his production and performance role in the original Kate Bush ‘Tour of Life’ and other great music acts. The Enid’s new show, ‘Dust’, is a highly ambitious audio-visual production and the final part in a trilogy of albums.

“Once described as a cross between Pink Floyd, The Orb and The Berlin Philharmonic (Time Out), their grand, eloquent, progressive sound is both dazzling and wondrous to behold” – Manchester Band On The Wall.

Formed in 1974 by composer Robert John Godfrey, The Enid are renowned for their large-scale, myth and fantasy-inspired instrumental pieces. The band are best remembered for their albums In the Region of the Summer Stars, Aerie Faerie Nonsense and Something Wicked This Way Comes. Following a break in 1988, Godfrey rediscovered his musical muse in 2007 and has since lovingly reformed The Enid with original drummer Dave Storey and a new generation of multi-instrumentalists - Jason Ducker, Max Read, Dominic Tofield and Joe Payne.

"The only band on the planet to have successfully fused rock based music with the power, dynamics and scale of symphonic classical music. They are the absolute masters of their art" - The Guardian.

Over the last few years, The Enid’s live performances and recordings have rebuilt and retained a fanatically dedicated following. Robert John Godfrey was crowned Visionary at the Progressive Music Awards 2014, while lead vocalist Joe Payne was voted Best Male Vocalist in the 2014 Prog Magazine Readers’ Poll.

The Enid play The Apex on Friday 5 February, show starts at 8pm. Tickets are £20, ring The Apex box office on 01284 758000 or see www.theapex.co.uk for more details or to book.
