Thanks for the continued support, and we look forward to seeing you in the near future on the road!
Hello folks! We’ve just returned from playing the Progdreams Festival in Holland at the first class venue Boerderij Cultuurpodium. The hospitality and crew there were the best I’ve ever experienced in all the years I’ve been playing live music. Arie Verstegen and his staff know how to do it right!
The lineups, the organization, the food and drink were all incredible. Above all, the crowd, people from all over were one of the best audiences we’ve ever had. Serious music listeners! From myself and the band, we’d like to thank you all for such an incredible experience. You are a shining example to the world on how it should be done.
We’d also like to thank Manuela Willems and The Dame for the introduction and sharing the experience with us. A big thanks to BJ (John Woodard) for accompanying us and helping with driving duties and merchandise sales. And of course Progressive Gears for the never ending hard work and support!
It is likely this will be the last of live gigs for IT this year, as our focus is now in the studio to bring you a lot of new music, whilst making extensive touring plans starting early next year. Stayed tuned folks.
The shows for 2019 are coming in thick and fast! Below you can see the shows we have confirmed already!

We are pleased and proud to announce that we’ve been nominated for best Limelight
(up and coming) artist in this year’s Prog Rock Awards.
This is a huge achievement for us as a band and – we feel – recognition of the
impact of our recent album ‘We’re All In This Together’.
This nomination is also a recognition of everyone that has supported us: our label,
our visual artists, our families, our friends, and the bloggers, interviewers and radio
stations out there bringing our music to a wider audience.
Thanks also to Jerry Ewing and the Prog Mag team for their part in making the last
18 months some of the best in the land of IT.
We would love for that support to continue by as many of you as possible giving us
your vote via this link:
Winning this award would not only be a dream come true, but make real the chance
to bring our music to even more people
It has been a busy busy few weeks surrounding the band, with many shows! So I thought I would take the time do do a round up of the last few shows!
Starting off at The Rock Den, Hatfield. To be honest, I didn’t really know what to expect from this event, however Dean over at the venue was one of the first promoters to get back to me with any enthusiasm. This show was with our good friends The Gift, and that is never a bad thing, so we agreed with an open mind. I am glad we did, it was a great show, despite getting off to a shaky start with the opening act deciding to pull out at showtime!
A review of the show can be read here, and here is a brief run down:
The following Sunday saw the band head down to The Talking Heads, Southampton. Again, with the fantastic Gift gents, to play to an enthused crowd, at a venue that was a total first for us, but a great place! We will look forward to doing it all again there at some point!

Finally we hit London last week, with a headline show to remember at the 229 Club, with the fantastic Taikonaut and Servants Of Science! Both supports were excellent, and full of enthusiasm despite it being a cold Wednesday night, and the audience left happy and excited. It was great to meet so many new people, and so many friends! We were also given an award from those lovely folk at The Wrinkly Rockers Club for our performance at the Progtoberfest Show last October. You can see their video from 229 below!
So this leaves just the last show of this current round, Fusion – A one-day celebration of music without boundaries on the 31st March. This is looking to be a top class event, with excellent acts, including our new Label mates We have Apostles of Chaos and Quiet Wish, alongside the mighty Godsticks! Tickets here
So we hope to catch up with you all, and be sure to keep an eye out for more dates coming soon, you can always check our GIGS page for details!
