PORCUPINE TREE, one of Great Britain’s most future-oriented bands that push the boundaries of genres, returns on November 1 after twelve years of new music.
The new song “Harridan” is perfect for immersing yourself in the unmistakable sound of PORCUPINE TREE. The powerful eight-minute ride heralds the return of a truly unique rock band to active service. Meanwhile, “Harridan” is the first precursor to the band’s upcoming eleventh album: “Closure/Continuation,” their first work since “The Incident” released in 2009.
Watch Harridan’s lyric video here:
After more than a decade in the works, Closure/Continuation will be released on June 24, 2022 via Music For Nations/Sony. The album consists of seven tracks and will be released on CD, double vinyl, color vinyl, and limited editions on cassettes. The LP Deluxe Edition with Crystal Clear Acoustic Vinyl was released as a 3xLP 45rpm box set, including 2 bonus tracks. Both the deluxe CD and BluRay collection include three bonus tracks, auto, 96/24 HD stereo, 5.1 and Dolby Atmos versions of the album – summarized in an exclusive art book.
The track list for “Closure / Continuation” as well as additional tracks for the deluxe releases will be announced in the coming months. Here is the album It can be pre-ordered.
PORCUPINE TREE sagen über “Harridan” and “Close/Continue”: “Harridan and some other new songs were playing shortly after The Incident was released. They initially lived on a hard disk in a slowly growing computer file marked PT2012, and renamed Later on to PT2015, PT2018, etc. There were times we forgot it was there, times we bothered to finish it to see where it would take us. Listening to the final pieces, it was clear that this wasn’t like any of our work outside the band – people’s common DNA Those behind the music mean that these pieces were making up the undeniable, obviously a Porcupine tree record. You’ll hear all that DNA flowing through Haridan.”
In the fall of 2022, PORCUPINE TREE announces a few select live shows in mainland Europe and Great Britain. These will be the band’s first concerts since October 2010 and will likely be their only “close/continuation” concert.
