Unified Past are a US/Canadian based heavy melodic prog band with seven albums under their belt including the highly acclaimed album Shifting The Equilibrium released in 2015 and the first album to feature vocalist Phil Naro.

Colin Tench best known for his work with Corvus Stone to releases new album “Hair in a G-String (Unfinished but Sweet)” as a solo album under the name Colin Tench Project
Hair in a G-String (Unfinished but Sweet) is available for pre-order and the albums release date is November 30th
According to Tench
“Hair in a G-String” could be labeled Prog before there was Prog. Split this into the written piece “Hair in a G-String” (about 46 minutes) & “Songs not in G” (About 36 minutes) and you’d have a prog album and a melodic rock album I guess. We didn’t do that. We mixed it up. See it as musical interludes between the main action.
