    Based on what I have gathered, potential new signing with Sony and a new album. Excited would be an understatement.

    I’ve spent a lot of this past week revisiting Storm Corrosion. What a sublimely haunting, angular, oddly challenging album that is. I just adore it. ‘Ljudet Innan’ might be one of the most beautiful SW compositions ever; there are moments of utter perfection therein.

    It is my hope that Steve and Mikeal do another.

    Excited for this! Seems like it'll be a new album given they apparently signed with Sony, no reason to do that if it were just reissues of older material or a tour. Someone on Reddit mentioned they got a press release and that we'll hear more about this Monday, but can't say anything more right now. It's Reddit, so take that with a grain of salt maybe... still, something's definitely happening.

    They uploaded a new clip that sounds like a bass being strung.

    I reversed and pitch shifted the first clip: here. Sounds like someone messing around with a demo recording.




    Anyone wanna bet that the album is going to be called 'Carbon Copy'? SW is not one to avoid thematic repetition.

    Though nothing official, but the fact that Colin isn't included in the new Porcupine 3 Registered Company for the band and his exclusion from the following promo image makes it appear that Mr. Edwin is not involved in the new Porcupine Tree project. SW does do a lot of his own bass guitar, but it's anyone's guess who might perform those duties on a hypothetical tour, if there is one.

    That's too bad. Guess that means there will be no finger style bass playing on the record. Edwin's contributions and his chemistry with Harrison were the highlight of PT's heavy output, imo

    edit:
    It seems like Colin Edwin is busy working on a new album with his current band, which has Mastelotto on drums.

    A damn shame if we're getting new Porcupine Tree without Colin. I'm a huge fan of his playing.

    Honestly hearing Barbieri and Harrison making music makes me elated with joy, not to demean Wilson. There was something magical between those two. Hype is on fire.

    Kinda odd to drop your first single eight months in advance of the album release.



    Going off of this song the album might have the potential to be up to par with Nil Recurring. Which is their best release, imho.

    The clip is from this song. 'Like the harridan you are.'

    (Harridan means 'old bitch'.)

    The chorus on the new track is a nice ear worm. The main groove is excellent. Really this is good stuff. So great to have them back. I love much of SW's body of solo work, but this aspect of his music has been greatly missed. Gavin co-wrote the single. Obviously the percussion is amazing. Barbieri's touch is so powerful as well. I couldn't help but smile at that 4 minute mark.

    But also kinda nice. Instead of an announcement followed by eight months of waiting, hoping for a single, it's: here's the announcement and also a new track to hold you over. I'm into it.

    The tour is way off in Autumn of 2022 as well. Which, this may simply be due to logistics and trying to be far enough off in an attempt mitigate any pandemic concerns. I also think that Sony might be fronting them an allowance for a tour, but they have got to be positive about album sales already. It looks like the album has already sold out on initial stock at many online stores. I am sure they will up the anty on production to meet restock demand.

    Great song. Putting this much time in front of the release date is a good move for all the reasons said so far, plus it gives them extra time to promote and put the word out there that they’re back, then if they were putting it out in January or February from now.

    This has been an incredible year for me personally so to see that my favorite band is back together is quite something. Steven finally read the room and is rocking again. All is right with the world.

    I've had this track on repeat all day, I really enjoy it. I had mostly given up hope for new Porcupine Tree, what a nice surprise to see them back.

    Happy the song is just strange enough. And surprised at how metal it gets! Opening with the bassline is a bold move, considering Colin Edwin is out of the band.

    (John Wesley is out too, and he's bummed about it. Justice For Wes!)

    I wonder who else will be in the live band. Maybe they'll just do it with backing tracks...

    Really? Jonh was a touring member mostly, but i don't get why he's out?

    I wouldn't be surprised if Nick Beggs becomes a touring member, he has played PT songs after all...

    Beggs being the touring bassist makes a lot of sense. But I am certain there will be a backing guitarist/musician. Too layered for just Steven and it frees him up for multi-keyboard parts he typically also performs on stage with Barbieri. But who that may end up being is anyone's guess. We're still a long way off before the touring begins so even an announcement might be subject to change. SW, being a producer and engineer, knows a lot of musicians. I am sure it will be someone with chops.

    Wouldnít be surprised if itís Paul Stacey, who worked on both sides of the desk on To The Bone. I think he even has a credit on ďHarridanĒ, so he might be someone in strong consideration when the time comes for how they will put together the band. I like the idea of Beggs and Harrison live, and is clearly adept as a vocalist himself and harmonizes with Steven very well.

    As for the song itself, I love it. When it gets heavy 3-4 minutes is when it dawned on me that this was the band I loved all these years. I remember a quote from an earlier interview being brought up when news of the new music hit, that SW said he would be interested in returning if he were able to directly collaborate more with the other guys instead of doing the heavy lifting of composing all himself. Iím sure the fact that Gavin got to work with and in his own way pick Frippís brain so directly all those years appealed to SW as much if not more then the experiences the two had together writing, recording and performing together. So from where I sit itís almost like a new band again, the way it was when In Absentia came out. There are still traces of the old sound but it feels fresh compared to SWís last 2 records where it felt far more like one manís work than a collective. And maybe, in this stage of his career, thatís where the gold might come from now. Canít hold talent like that back for long.

    Wilson has been an able collaborator in no-man and in Blackfield, Less so on Blackfieldís latest albums which I donít mind saying were quite forgettable. But he never really did that with PT until the last two albums, and maybe not to the extensive degree that they probably did for this record, and maybe go from there. Like them or not it worked for Metallica on their last two records, in that they made them in total collaboration as opposed to it being the James and Lars show. That gets me to wondering about the elephant in the room, and where Colin is or more likely isnít in the picture. This is a band with amazingly little drama, Maitlandís leaving was quickly resolved with Gavin coming in and the band just sort of disappeared like the song goes, with odd things said by SW in interviews as a solo artist about the bandís future. So there are as much questions as there is relief this band is back. Speaking for myself I will take a great album over answers to those questions.
