“Rise Up Forgotten, Return Destroyed” will be released by Bad Elephant Music on 1st July 2013.

Fusing pop, prog and electronica into a story of abuse, betrayal and madness, “Rise Up Forgotten, Return Destroyed” is the new album from Shineback, solo project from Simon Godfrey of Tinyfish. The album – with lyrics from Simon’s writing partner in Tinyfish, Robert Ramsay – centres upon the story of Dora who undertakes a fantastic, yet disturbing journey into her own dream word where she encounters dark revelations about her past buried in memory.

To aid Simon in this venture, artists such as Matt Stevens (Fierce And The Dead), Dec Burke (Frost*, Alpha Flood, Darwin’s Radio, Dec Burke Band), Henry Rogers (Touchstone, DeeExpus, Final Conflict), Andy Ditchfield (DeeExpus), Hywel Bennett (Dec Burke Band) Paul Worwood (Tinyfish) and Danny Claire (Ion Blue, Michael Angelo) have contributed their time and talents to make this a truly genre crossing record.

We are taking pre-orders for the album – and for limited edition Shineback T-shirts – at The Merch Desk from 1st April. If you pre-order before 15th June then you will receive, by email, a code to download an exclusive bonus track from the album sessions, I Have Good Days, I Have Bad Days. This track will only be made available to those who pre-order the album. Furthemore, pre-orders for CD and T-shirt bundles will be at a special price, again, only available if you order before 15th June.

A download-only ‘single’ from the album will be released on 3rd June together with a ‘B-side’ that isn’t on the CD.
