Band leader Jonas Čiurlionis states: “Journey Through The Skies marks our 20th anniversary. It contains songs from all the years the band exists, starting with early previously unreleased material, going through re-recorded tunes from previous albums and ending with our latest compositions. We are happy for its’ warm welcome by the audience. It was a huge experience for us to work with some well known names on the album, including Snowy White (guitar for Thin Lizzy, Roger Waters, Pink Floyd), Rob Townsend (sax for ex-Genesis Steve Hackett) and sound engineer Steve Rispin, known for his work with Tina Turner, Elton John, Asia and Uriah Heep. The album was mastered at legendary Abbey Road studios by Christian Wright, whose credits include Jack Bruce, Coldplay, Ed Sheeran, Muse and Radiohead.”
