Rock On! This Week's Sound Bites...7/18/24

"Yes sir, "Beowulf" and it just came out on May 23; our last one was 2002," said Pangaea keyboardist Corey Schenck. "We halted in 2008 and took a break until 2021. So, we took a lengthy breather before we got back together to work again, we're still together and we have the five original members who started the band back in 1989, we've added a sixth person to help us because live we can't cover all of the parts we do on the record and we didn't want to do back tracks, so we have a sixth member now but all of the originals are back."
