Headspace, the band featuring Damian Wilson (Threshold) & Adam Wakeman (Ozzy Osbourne, Snakecharmer), recently announced the release of second album "All That You Fear Is Gone" is due for February 26th, 2016.
The band, completed by guitarist Pete Rinaldi (Hot Leg) & bassist Lee Pomeroy (It Bites, Steve Hackett) as well as new drummer Adam Falkner (Babyshambes, Dido, One Eskimo), also just launched the first track off "All That You Fear Is Gone." Check out "Your Life Will Change" below.
Vocalist Damian Wilson had this to say about the track: "We have a natural need to better ourselves, our situation and future. This is part of the human survival instinct and is encouraged and fed by the world we live in. Despite being aware that the real value is in the here and now, we find ourselves brushed along. But is it truly possible to opt out from this merry go round?
"'Your Life Will Change' references past civilizations to modern entertainment. We are distracted and controlled by a society. But what happens if we really break away from the group and ignore the ideal we're being sold? Will we become gods or fallen angels?"
Guitarist Pete Rinaldi adds: "This album picks up where 'I Am Anonymous' finishes. The process of each of us adding their creativity to the tracks has made this something we are really proud of. 'All That You Fear Is Gone' features the debut of my good friend Adam Falkner on drums who has done a fantastic job making his mark on this record, we are all looking forward to bringing it to live audiences."

Headspace, the band featuring Damian Wilson (Threshold) & Adam Wakeman (Ozzy Osbourne, Snakecharmer), will release second album "All That You Fear Is Gone" on February 26, 2016.
The band, completed by guitarist Pete Rinaldi (Hot Leg) & bassist Lee Pomeroy (It Bites, Steve Hackett), also just recruited new drummer Adam Falkner (Babyshambes, Dido, One Eskimo).
Adam Wakeman had this to say: "This album is the first to debut new drummer Adam Falkner whom Pete Rinaldi and I have toured with a lot in the past. He's a superb player and he really fits with the band's sound and style. He also gets a round in, which is a plus."
Damian Wilson comments on the new album: "The conforming individual represented in the first album that breaks away, is reflected in All That You Fear Is Gone. Free thinking, fighting against natural grouping, what appears as destructive rebellion is in fact evolution. Written to make the listener think, whilst capturing the ear with complexity and simplicity combined.
"Embarking on the second Headspace album I personally had a clear vision, but by the time each band member had thrown in their piece, I thought we had produced an album that was unlistenable to. As it progressed, the rough edges and corners seemed to settle like a good lasagne. Everyone has their own tastes, but I know this is a bloody good lasagne."
U.K. outfit Headspace has issued the following brief announcement about cancelling upcoming live shows:
"Regrettably, Headspace has had to postpone the European dates in September until early 2015 (new dates to be announced soon) and sadly will not be appearing at Progpower Europe."
Headspace, the U.K. progressive metal band featuring Threshold vocalist Damien Wilson and Ozzy Osbourne keyboardist Adam Wakeman, posted a new music video for the track "Die With A Bullet." The song appears on the 2012 debut full length LP "I Am Anonymous," issued in 2012 via Inside Out Music.

InsideOut Music has announced the worldwide signing of the prog act Headspace. Headspace keyboardist Adam Wakeman (also of Ozzy Osbourne, and son of Yes' Rick Wakeman) comments about the signing:
"We are so pleased to be joining forces with InsideOut. We have spent a long time making sure that this album is exactly how we want it; and to have a label behind us that fully understands where the band is coming from and what we're about is incredibly important to us. It's a perfect match."
The band began as a way for Wakeman and a close circle of his musician friends to reconnect. There were no preconceptions of launching a progressive metal band, and certainly no visions of grandeur - they just played music that they loved. "We're quite open about our influences because that's the music that we love," the band comments. "There's RUSH, YES, GENESIS, a lot of bands. We even give a tip of the hat to DREAM THEATER in a few sections. That's all a part of what we are." More...
