Stone & Steel Important Announcement

Here's an important announcement on the "rest of world" release of "STONE & STEEL".
After lengthy consideration we have decided against a new pressing of Stone & Steel for specific markets outside of the UK, Europe, Middle East, Africa, India, China, Australia or New Zealand (referred to as ‘Rest of the World” for this release.) A test disc was produced for a new pressing but it did not meet our high standards.

Christmas Greetings

Christmas bauble

A Christmas bauble for you: http://www.bigbigtrain.com/mp3s/BBT_Xmas_Greetings_2015.mp3

It's been something of a landmark year for the band, with our first stage performances in many years - both the "full Monty" at Kings Place and the unplugged ensemble at Egremont. We've been hard at work since then preparing "Stone & Steel" for release and tracking parts for "Folklore"... Hopefully there'll be plenty for you to enjoy next year.


"Stone and Steel" Release Date ; "Judas Unrepentant" Live Video Released

The release of Stone and Steel, originally planned for this year, will now happen on 7th March 2016. Alongside nine songs and documentary footage filmed at Real World in 2014, we have decided to include four songs from the Kings Place gigs this year, and to mix all performances in 5.1 as well as stereo. It hasn't proved possible to complete this work in time for a pre-Christmas release.
