We have been working away like crazy on this project [quietly in the background] trying to pull together all the complicated strands necessary to make this happen.
We are now delighted to announce that Abel Ganz will play a live show in Cottiers Theatre, Glasgow on Tuesday the 24th March. This show is to be recorded for a DVD and live album release later this year. This will be an all seated, very intimate show with very limited numbers!
We would love for you to come along and be included in our live video!
Look out for upcoming details of this show as we hope to announce special guests very soon. There is a little more info, and tickets can be bought from the Cottiers box office, here: http://www.cottiers.com/events/abel-ganz-live-cottiers/
A great last six months for Abel Ganz. We are looking forward to the next six months with even greater excitement! Only made possible by determination, faith and most importantly your support.
To be honest, we have been a little wary of these things in the past as we know there are many bands with much larger fan bases to draw upon – that makes things all the harder for lesser-known bands to make an impression. That said – if we were able to make an impression it would be like oxygen for us!
We honestly believe our new album to be the best work we have ever produced. Please, please if you can find the time, vote for Abel Ganz as best album over at the Prog Magazine Poll & The Dutch Progressive Rock Page poll too – – if you think we are worth it!
For Prog Magazine all you need to do to vote is send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org under the subject line “Readers’ Poll 2014″.

Thank you all very much for the support you have shown us this year. Truly amazing!
What was your best album of 2014? It’s a question that inevitably pops up around now every year. We are incredibly fortunate, and proud of the fact that our new album has been so well received since it was released in July. Now – we are very, very proud to see our album appearing on some end of year round ups.
An album that touches my soul every time I press play, the self-titled release from Abel Ganz is a record that will stay in my collection for the foreseeable future. Divine, beautiful, ethereal and, well, just darn good, as close to a religious experience as an agnostic can have!
Full of epic multi-part prog goodness and fused with gentle folk and country and more than a little slice of their Scottish homeland, there is the overriding conclusion that this is something quite special. This collection of songs is not only a winner from start to finish, it is sumptuously packaged and expertly produced and as close to a modern day classic as you are ever likely to get. It is the best release of the year hands down.

To say we are excited, happy, and proud about this news does not even begin to describe how incredibly delighted we are!
When George first contacted us [very soon after the release of new album] we were literally bouncing around with excitement at the prospect – it’s been so hard for us to keep it a secret until now.
We cannot wait to get there and bring our music to some new [and hopefully some older ones too] friends. Thank you so much to everyone for the good wishes we have been receiving and thank you again to everyone who has bought and supported the new album – it really makes all the hard work worthwhile.
