Roadrunner Records U.K. has announced the signing of epic rockers PORCUPINE TREE.
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.
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.
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.
"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."
