The band’s latest album is part of the ‘Requiem’ trilogy and will be the first installment (the 2nd of the trilogy) released. The album will be followed later on this year by ‘Requiem – Pianissimo’ and ‘Requiem – Fortissimo.’

About the ‘Requiem’ trilogy, London says,
“Well, I feel like I’ve become a completely non-functioning part of society over the past two years. Requiem has been the most agonizingly difficult experience I have ever faced. On one side are the logistics of three albums, two and a half hours of music, and financing it all (orchestra included). The other side is the emotional toll; the far too many times I fell in a heap feeling that it would be impossible to succeed and coming oh so close to completely giving up the project. I take many a scar from this process and may never experience this kind of beautiful pain again.”
