Roine comments:
"It was both a scary and exciting prospect to go back into the studio after an almost 5 year-long, well-earned hiatus. We have all been active with Transatlantic, Karmakanic, Agents Of Mercy since, so we were up to speed in the playing department, but starting TFK again put some weight on my shoulders I suppose, but it's fun.

Realizing now with ELP, Crimson, Genesis, Gentle Giant, Pink Floyd being history we are among the new eldermen of Prog and we feel responsible for keeping the standard up, so a lot of hard work is gonna go into the coming months.

The core members are there and for this re-starting of TFK we brought in new 26 year old drummer prodigy Felix Lehrmann who we feel Felix is gonna breathe life into both the new and old material in a live setting, possibly with a more hard hitting edge.

The progressive daredevil at the helms made us start the new album with a 25 min epic centerpiece that is NOT easy listening. But the material also has all classic elements of the Flower Kings style with all the dreamy melodic & cinematic glow sprinkled all over, that the band's fans have come to love over the years.

My advice is: just give it time and it will be very rewarding."
