UK Prog Rockers return in 2016 with this, their first full-length studio album since the award winning: ‘English Electric’ and it comes in a Digi-Pak!

‘Folklore’ contains nine new songs with a total running time of over sixty-eight minutes, and despite the album title, is by no means a collection of traditional-sounding folk music pieces. On ‘Folklore’, BBT are re-imagining and breathing new life into traditional themes, whilst creating a few new ones along the way. The crafts of songwriting and storytelling beat strongly at the heart of this band and inform every track on this new album.

‘Folklore’ features an unchanged eight-piece line-up (plus brass quintet), which performed three sell out shows at Kings Place in London in the summer of 2015, with the addition of a string quartet. The experience of bringing this complex music to the concert stage has honed the BBT sound, making ‘Folklore’ a focussed and exciting listening experience. All the hallmarks of the BIG BIG TRAIN sound can be found here: powerful and emotional vocal delivery, and dramatic extended song arrangements, which showcase the musical ability within the band.

‘Folklore’ is also available as a Double 180gm Vinyl LP – Stock # 1859518

‘Folklore’ is released on 27th May 2016.
