I'm sure I must speak on behalf of a lot of forum users and fans.I really miss seeing the band live and catching up with all of you guys.Its been nearly two years now since i saw them last at the superb FrostBites xmas gig and Im hoping and praying I will get to see them again.How many of you guys are suffering withdrawal symptoms like me.😕

+1 . The lack of any activity, studio or live, by IB and Frost* currently is definitely causing withdrawal symptoms! Yes, there is still plenty of good new music out there but these were the 2 bands which rekindled my love of prog and music in general back in around 2006.
I'm hoping Lonely Robot will fill the void!

I hope that the long gestation period of the next IB album will lead to the greatest IB album ever. In the meantime hopefully Lonely Robot and the new Steve Wilson album will help me over this void of new IB stuff. I don`t mention the new versions of IB material of Francis Dunnery now that I have heard the rather lame sample of "Calling All The Heroes". I hope the rest of the album will be proving me wrong but I doubt it.
But a new IB album by the end of 2015 would be really very neat Very Happy

I'm there with the withdrawal symptoms too. I really miss the atmosphere live (which is always good), jumping to Kiss Like Judas and generally catching up with loads of lovely people!

Patience is key when you're an IB fan, and waiting for FD to rejoin IB and get the original gang back together Very Happy Shocked Very Happy

I suspect you'd have to be VERY patient waiting for that to happen... Wink

That`s pure romanticism and it is very ignorant about the fact that John Mitchell and John Beck are a fantastic writing unit. Listen to FD`s solo output during the last years and you`ll find hardly any common ground for JB and FD to write IB music together again. I still am very surprised that FD has returned to the old IB stuff and re-recorded those songs, but as I said earlier, I don`t expect too much of this.
JM is the new frontman, he is different from FD but just as great in his own way.

He laid the bait and you bit. Think it through.

When push comes to shove all the guys have to put food on the table and have to spend the majority of their time doing things that pay. I suspect It Bites is a labour of love but it doesn't make them a lot of money. Trouble is if they don't keep It Bites in everybody's mind the group could fade away. The most active section of this forum at the moment is 'other bands'.

Yes it's been far too long. It would be good to see some of you guys again.
