The first Porcupine Tree 2007 tour dates to coincide with the release of the band's new album in April 2007 (through Roadrunner in Europe and Atlantic in the US) have been announced. The tour will commence with the longest string of UK dates the band have undertaken for several years:

18th April : GLASGOW, ABC
19th April : NEWCASTLE, Academy
20th April : PRESTON, 53 Degrees
22nd April : NOTTINGHAM, Rock City
23rd April : WOLVERHAMPTON, Wulfren
24th April : BRISTOL, Academy
25th April : CAMBRIDGE, Junction
26th April : LONDON, Forum

Details of booking websites and telephone hotlines can be found on the tour dates page, but please note that in most cases tickets for these shows will not be on sale until late December. As many of the band's recent shows have been selling out, booking tickets in advance is definitely advisable (especially for London).

Giddy for the new album.

Probably cant expect another psychological album that tells the life story of a violent sociopath (In Absentia) or the dark, lonely paranoia of Signify and Up the Downstair....But I'm sure it will be just as good as the rest of the discography.

No let downs yet.

Would like to see the boys in Tampa, Florida again at Masquerade. They put on an incredible show in 03, 05 was good as well but not as edgy given the polish of the material on Deadwing. Anyway, what have we heard about the upcomming album?

Little until just yesterday actually.

It's only 6 tracks, most of which are long form. It will be called Fear of a Blank Planet (a referance to Fear of a Black Planet from Public Enemy but obviously the message isgoing to be quite different)

It looks like the material has been well recieved live as Wilson has actually mentioned a strong reception twice.
to quote the bands website: "The lyrical content of the song-cycle on the album is a 21st century c***tail of MTV, sex, prescription drugs, video games, the internet, terminal boredom, and subsequent escape."

I was hoping for a few more tracks(I'm greedy) but I'll be thrilled with longforms. And I know Wilson is a busy man with things like Blackfield, Bass Communion and his side project with Mike Portnoy and Mikael Ackerfeldt (which will probably tear my headoff whenever it comes out).

When I saw them this fall in NYC they blew me away when they played songs off their new album. Each song was amazing and this release is going to be one of their best hands down. Its almost a mix between "Deadwing" and "The Sky Moves Sideways". Steven Wilson is GODDDD. They need to go back to NY !!!!!!!!!! soon......
