BARKING UP THE RIGHT TREE

Posted on February 12, 2008

Roadrunner Records is delighted to welcome epic rockers PORCUPINE TREE to our family. 퉌æ Porcupine Tree is unquestionably one of the most difficult-to-categorise and innovative bands out there. The music is breathtaking, ranging from psychedelic trip-hop to progressive metal, and a compendium of other sounds in between. 퉌æ Evolving from one man’s self-indulgent creative outlet back in 1992, Porcupine Tree has grown into a well respected major-label-signed four-piece who have released several albums. Their most recent, 2005’s ‘Deadwing’, served to further skyrocket the band’s renown and they are currently hard at work on a brand new record – set for release on Roadrunner (excluding North America and Japan) in early 2007. 퉌æ The band is fronted by singer/guitarist Steven Wilson, who also is well-known for his production work (Opeth, Anja Garbarek) and other musical projects: No-Man, Bass Communion, and Blackfield – the highly acclaimed collaboration with Israeli musician Aviv Geffen. Richard Barbieri (keyboards), Colin Edwin (bass), and Gavin Harrison (drums) complete the quartet. í‰Œæ “Porcupine Tree are extremely happy about our new partnership with Roadrunner Records for our forthcoming album,” comments Wilson. “Roadrunner has established itself as one of the world’s premier independent labels for rock music, and we couldn’t be more enthusiastic about working with them to expand our audience and elevate Porcupine Tree to the next level.” 퉌æ Experience Porcupine Tree live – including some forthcoming new songs – at these dates: 퉌æ Sep 13 2006퉌æ퉌æCAMBRIDGE, UK:퉌æThe Junction Sep 15 2006퉌æ퉌æPARIS, France:퉌æElys퀌©e Montmartre Sep 16 2006퉌æ퉌æANTWERP, Belgium:퉌æHof Ter Lo Sep 18 2006퉌æ퉌æROME, Italy:퉌æTeatro Tendastrisce Sep 19 2006퉌æ퉌æMILAN, Italy:퉌æRolling Stone Sep 21 2006퉌æ퉌æPRATTELN, Switzerland:퉌æZ7 Sep 22 2006퉌æ퉌æM퀁ñNCHEN, Germany:퉌æMuffathalle Sep 23 2006퉌æ퉌æSAARBR퀁ñCKEN, Germany:퉌æGarage Sep 25 2006퉌æ퉌æHAMBURG, Germany:퉌æGro퀁Ÿe Freiheit 36 Sep 26 2006퉌æ퉌æESSEN, Germany:퉌æWeststadthalle Sep 27 2006퉌æ퉌æAMSTERDAM, The Netherlands:퉌æParadiso Sep 29 2006퉌æ퉌æLONDON, UK:퉌æAstoria Sep 30 2006퉌æ퉌æMANCHESTER, UK:퉌æManchester University Oct 01 2006퉌æ퉌æGLASGOW, UK:퉌æCarling Academy Oct 05 2006퉌æ퉌æBOSTON, USA:퉌æBerklee Performance Center Oct 06 2006퉌æ퉌æNEW YORK, New York, USA:퉌æNokia Theater Oct 07 2006퉌æ퉌æPHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania, USA:퉌æKeswick Theater Oct 11 2006퉌æ퉌æLOS ANGELES, California, USA:퉌æHouse of Blues Oct 13 2006퉌æ퉌æSAN FRANCISCO, California, USA:퉌æFillmore 퉌æ Porcupine Tree will also release their first live DVD, titled ‘Arriving Somewhere…’, on October 9. 퉌æ For more information check out the band’s official website at www.porcupinetree.com. 퉌æ
