GEP are very excited to announce that the iconic IQ album The Seventh House is now available on vinyl
The vinyl itself has come out really well – translucent yellow for the first disc and translucent red for the second – the whole thing just works as a complete design package and the new cover artwork by Tony Lythgoe works really well in the bigger 12” vinyl format. He’s created a new watercolour illustration for the inner gatefold spread that fits perfectly with the atmosphere of the title track. Available from the GEP store.

Southern Empire were formed by keyboardist Sean Timms following the dissolution of his previous band Unitopia.
