Time can sometimes play tricks on us. So, when the facts state that it’s been a decade since the last studio album from Enchant, 2003’s ‘Tug Of War’, you could be forgiven the thought that fate, as mischievous and misleading as ever, has been messing with our memory. But it has indeed been a little over 10 years since ‘Tug…’. So, what on earth has kept the Bay Area prog rock masters off the scene for so long?
“Well, it’s been a combination of circumstances,” shrugs guitarist/vocalist Douglas A. Ott. “A couple of the guys got married and had kids, jobs etc… and before we knew it, we’d been away for a long time. Also, Ted Leonard (vocals/guitar) was involved with Spock’s Beard, Affector and Thought Chamber, and Bill Jenkins (keyboards) has toured with Sound Of Contact, so it’s not as if we’ve had nothing to do with music.”
