More information: Hats Off Gentlemen Itís Adequate combine progressive, alt-rock, classical, experimental, electronic, and metal influences.

Led by former consultant neuropathologist and UCL Medical School honorary senior lecturer, Malcolm Galloway, they have been developing a cult reputation after stepping in at the last minute to replace an injured band on the main stage at HRH Prog 2017 Festival, opening for Magnum, Focus and Carl Palmer.

The album explores the damage caused by toxic overconfidence, and our failure to learn from history. Track 8 is an instrumental that follows the story of Malcolmís great-grandmotherís escape from the Holocaust.

Hats Off Gentlemen It's Adequate are Malcolm Galloway (vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer) and Mark Gatland (bass, Chapman stick, backing vocals, additional guitar, keyboards and co-producer), on their own, or with Kathryn Thomas (flute, backing vocals). Kathryn is the flautist of the award winning BBC New Generation Artists The Galliard Ensemble (wind quintet), and is also married to Malcolm.

The band say this is an album that should appeal to fans of Pink Floyd, David Gilmour, Roger Waters, and Marillion.
