2004  Author John Tucker was writing a book on the whole NWOBHM period and interviewed the band for it.  One of the questions he had for us was the whereabouts of any unreleased material that we might have stashed away.  I'd kept the tapes of the tracks for the second album since 1983 and this prompted me to get them transferred onto CD, something I'd been meaning to do for a long time.  The older demos were also transferred from cassette tapes.  The digital copies were then re-mastered, which resulted in 12 unreleased Shiva tracks lasting almost an hour.  Majestic Records were keen to put the tracks out on a new CD, we made a deal and in 2004 Shiva's second album recordings were finally released.  The CD is named Continuance and contains all 7 tracks recorded in 1983 plus the 5 older ones as bonus tracks. John Tucker's book is also now on sale (May 2006).
