Beyond the Bridge is set to release the new album "The Old Man and the Spirit" January 24th via Frontiers Records. A brand new electronic press kit for "The Old Man and the Spirit" has been released and is available for viewing below.

"The Old Man and the Spirit" is a concept album dealing with the polarity of human sensuousness and superhuman awareness. Two main characters interpret the music on this theatrical and challenging record: "The Spirit," who is the personification of all wisdom and awareness that is unachievable to mankind but that lacks of the ability to feel, and her opponent "The Old Man:" a bon vivant who has lived through all highs and lows of human sensations. These two characters are interpreted by the two band singers: a female Dilenya Mar and a male Herbie Langhans.

But the operatic and cinematic setting of the album was put together by the bands' two masterminds: guitar player Peter Degenfeld and the classically trained ivory tinkler Christopher Tarnow. "From the beginning it was our intention to do an album presenting one big piece of music" tells Degenfeld. "One of the very first things that came about were the two characters together with the basic content of the story. Basically before the notes were written, we knew what each song had to sound and feel like and what the lyrics had to say. With these restrictions we started the songwriting process. In the end writing songs under these self-imposed limits turned out to be just great."
