  1. Andrew S

    An upcoming release to add:
    No Better Time – Kingdom Heirs (Nov 1)

    Also, is the Triumphant release a full album or EP for streaming only?

    • David Bruce Murray

      Thanks Andrew

      I am guessing the new Triumphant album will be 10 songs or more, but I haven’t seen anything official. I did hear that four tracks will feature Sean Barber, which is good; it will give him material to present in concert that was selected and arranged for him to sing.
