A STEP APART - The Bonds We Share

Location: Nederland
Release: Not Just Words Records, 2011 (unreleased)
Artwork: Kalle Garmark

"After having recorded a promo and a demo, Not Just Words Records (from the Netherlands) picked A Step Apart up to release their debut EP, followed by two other EP’s. When the band quit, plans were made to release a discography CD with everything the band had ever recorded. Two Asian labels and also React Records showed interest to handle the overseas releases. In the end, it never came out." - Ronald B.
