The album will be available in standard jewel case CD, limited edition digi-book and also in limited edition vinyl.
Power Quest was formed in March 2001 by keyboardist Steve Williams after he left London-based power metal heroes Dragonforce. Former DF colleague Steve Scott was immediately recruited on bass along with Southampton based guitarist Adam Bickers. Showing there was no ill feeling following the split from DF, Sam Totman assisted with guitars and would continue to do so right up until the Neverworld album had been recorded.
The band has had a rollercoaster ride since their formation, releasing five studio albums but nothing since 2011, until now. There have also been numerous line-up changes throughout the years with the current line-up being:
Andy Kopcykz – guitars
Glyn Williams – guitars
Paul Finnie – bass
Rich Smith – drums
Steve Williams – keyboards
Power Quest are set to tour the UK in September and also October in support of Sixth Dimension.
