Whilst not fresh news, we thought it worth mentioning that cross-country prog supergroup Orbs will be touring from the middle of next month into September in support of their long-awaited debut album Asleep Next To Science. Not only is this an exciting and probably rare opportunity to see something a little bit special, but it’s also mentionable because our review will be coming next week!
