Some interesting news everyone, ARAGORN have reformed!
They are working on a new album that will be ready for a realease in 2012.

ImageQuote from the announcment at their Official Website:

30 years after the release of their cult NWoBHM single “Black Ice”, former Neat Records act Aragorn are back on the road.

"When we were planning the Aragorn Anthology back in '03, I received many calls and messages from around the globe about reforming,” says original drummer Mike Ellis. “As has been well documented, a reformation with the original members was not going to happen. But the itch to have Aragorn out there gigging again has become impossible not to scratch and I've decided the time is now right."

With the help of Frank Flynn from the band's hometown of Macclesfield and one of Ellis’ long time musical partners in crime, former Meggido frontman Iain Muir, Aragorn are back in action. “Whilst we are going to be playing many songs from the band’s first incarnation, this is not purely an exhumation of old songs,” explains Ellis. “Aragorn could have achieved a great deal more than it did and this continuation of the legacy will see new material recorded and released.”

The band are currently rehearsing and recording a new album due for release in 2012, the first release of new material since the “Noonday” Anthology on Sanctuary Records in 2003. Live dates are already booked in select rock venues in the UK along with major rock festivals for next year.
