The Skinny: Enchant, the Bay Area’s long-running prog rock institution, are soon to release, The Great Divide, via the band’s longtime label partner InsideOut Music. The Great Divide is Enchant’s much anticipated 8th studio album and their first new recordings in almost ten years, following 2003’s acclaimed Tug Of War and the Live At Last double-album / live DVD release of 2004.

The album’s first full song sample, the track “Within an Inch,” has just been launched online for you to check out below. Enchant’s Douglas A. Ott checked in with the following comment about the song: “‘Within an Inch’ is a song about coming as close to death as possible without dying. I was in a horrible accident when I was 20 years old and almost died when I was run over by a fork lift. This song is about that experience.”
