Today the band unveiled the first single from the release, the ultra-prog epic 'Lost In Translation' which has a song length of over ten minutes! Commented THRESHOLD's Richard West: "We've made a monster of an album so we thought we should release a monster of a single! This epic really showcases the many sides of our sound and is a great prelude to our album release."
