Gorham said (via MetalTalk):
"Out of respect to Phil Lynott and the legacy he created, wehave decided that we should not release a new album under the ThinLizzy name. It was a very difficult decision as we put a lot oftime and effort into re-building the Thin Lizzy brand over recentyears. Releasing a new album was the only way to continue thissuccess.
"We all know how much Phil meant to this band and the fans. Wehave written 20 songs that we all feel very strongly do the bandand Thin Lizzy name credit. We believe Phil would have been proudof them.
"We always knew a new record was a touchy subject with somepeople and as such really want the quality of these songs to beheard by everyone without any judgment or prejudice. To that end,we have decided not to release these songs under the name ThinLizzy.
"We want to thank everyone for their support andencouragement over the years and to all our fans. We will releasethis material soon and you will be hearing some great new musicwith the classic Thin Lizzy sound intact. We will announce futureplans early in the New Year."
