Fourth Page was formed in 2010 almost by accident on a sunny Spring afternoon in Surrey. The very first notes the band ever played together that day ended up on their debut album, 'Along the Weak Rope', which was released later that year. Two more albums followed for Forwind and the legendary Leo label over the next couple of years.

The band's unique and entirely improvised approach to song form has drawn comparisons to the likes of Schubert to David Sylvian, Scott Walker, Talk Talk and John Martyn, but in truth Fourth Page sound like no-one but themselves. Now, after a few years spent concentrating on other projects and collaborations (often with each other in various combinations) the quartet are back together.

This time the band's sound is a little harder edged, more electric. Maybe this is a reflection of the darker times we live in at the close of the decade, but at the heart of Fourth Page's music there's still a luminous, fragile beauty.

A new album 'The Forest from Above' is complete and due for release towards the end of 2018 on Leo Records. and the band has recently undertaken a short run of gigs and radio sessions, including improvising a live soundtrack to Karl Dreyer's legendary 1932 film 'Vampyr‘. (Pressetext)
