Iamthemorning, The Pineapple Thief and Steven Wilson are set to perform this weekend at the Be Prog! My Friend festival in Barcelona, Spain.
Headliners Iamthemorning and The Pineapple Thief will be performing on Friday, July 1st and Steven Wilson will be headlining on Saturday, July 2nd. Also appearing across the weekend are Opeth, Textures and 1970s innovators Magma.
British progressive music band The Pineapple Thief has announced the release of its most ambitious studio album to date, Your Wilderness (Kscope). The album will be available on August 12.
“The new album was a joy to make. More so than any other The Pineapple Thief album before it,” says frontman Bruce Soord. “Everything came together so effortlessly and I think this comes across when you hear the record.”
For the first time, The Pineapple Thief has invited several special guest musicians. “Since our last album ‘Magnolia,’ the most eye catching change is obviously having Gavin Harrison contribute drums throughout the album,” adds Bruce Soord. “This has not only redefined our sound, but also redefined how we approached the songs as a band. Gavin’s drumming is technically brilliant, but also incredibly musical, and it inspired all of us to raise our game. I’ve also rediscovered my progressive roots in terms of songwriting and arrangement.
Added to that, we were lucky enough to have John Helliwell from Supertramp contribute some beautiful clarinet parts and Geoffrey Richardson (Caravan) provided a string quartet. We were also joined by a lovely four piece choir and, to cap it all off, my friend Darran Charles (Godsticks) added some jaw dropping guitar playing… You’ve never heard a The Pineapple Thief album like this one! I am convinced people will love this record as much as we do.”
Your Wilderness will be available on CD, LP, digitally and as a special deluxe hard cover book.
