The forthcoming releases from United Progressive Fraternity, dubbed ‘the most
communicated albums ever made’, are an ambitious undertaking that unites the
Fraternity in the recording of two CDs worth of material that will delve deeper into the
environmental issues that we all face as a united world.
The albums, titled ‘Planetary Overload ‘Part 1: Loss’ (Early. 2019) & ‘Part 2: Hope’ (late 2019/early 2020),
will focus on the problems we are already beginning to encounter on a troubled planet and expected
to face with increasing severity in the near future, and taking immediate positive action to mitigate
those effects to ensure humanity’s survival.
