Is Porcupine Tree back?
Yes, Porcupine Tree is reunited again for new albums and more concert shows.
Porcupine Tree‘s frontman Steven Wilson shared his thoughts about the upcoming album and tour:
“It was the final song written for the album. When the rest of the songs were assembled, we felt there was still musically a hole for something dramatic in the middle of the album, so it became the only song written as a three-way collaboration between all of us. Beginning with Gavin coming up with an unusual rhythm in 11, it was then a case of myself and Richard finding the music and both of us working with sequenced electronics and sound design alongside the quiet/loud guitar dynamics. The full 7-minute version is musical storytelling that features several other sections.
But I think the edit works quite well as a more conventionally structured piece too – a smaller bite of music. Lyrically it’s about a very specific event in history, but it also deals with the broader theme of paranoia in the modern age. Someone or something is coming up your driveway or in your front garden, and their/motives are unclear. The title obviously takes on extra resonance in our pandemic times.”
