‘Take 60′s/70′s influences such as early Floyd, Soft Machine and VDGG and mix them with Rain Tree Crow and late King Crimson. One of the most interesting Prog bands to come out of the UK in recent years.’ – Feedback Magazine

Last month Steven Wilson’s music video for ‘The Raven That Refused To Sing‘ stunned fans worldwide with it’s beautiful art style and intricate animations. Jess Cope, who co-directed the video with Simon Cartwright, is featured in this interview where she discusses how she animated the video using a technique called ‘multiplane’. If you haven’t seen the video yet, you can see it on Steven’s official YouTube channel, here.
Steven Wilson has just announced additional UK tour dates for October this year. This announcement comes weeks after the massive success of the recent UK dates earlier this month in Manchester, Glasgow and London.
In October, Steven will visit Bristol, Wolverhampton and Newcastle and then finish the tour with an epic show at the prestigious Royal Albert Hall in London. The last time that Steven performed at the Royal Albert Hall was with Porcupine Tree back in 2010, which was their final show of the tour to promote ‘The Incident’.
Tickets will go on sale for the shows on Thursday 28th March at 10am with a limited presale starting on Tuesday 26th March exclusively through See Tickets. Ticket availability for all upcoming shows on the tour can be found on the tour dates page on Steven’s official website. We’ll see you at the Royal Albert Hall!
Steve Hogarth, lead singer of progressive rock band Marillion has confirmed via his Facebook page his intentions to tour with Richard Barbieri later this year. The tour will focus primarily on the duo’s recent album ‘Not The Weapon But The Hand‘ but the set will also contain music from Porcupine Tree, The H Band and Richard’s solo albums.
The tour dates will be announced very soon and will span the UK, France, Poland, Germany and Holland.
