Porcupine Tree will tour with new album “Closure/Continuation”

Following a career spanning over 20 years with 10 studio albums under their belt, Porcupine Tree have long-established an undiminishing reverence held by fans and critics alike. Hailed as a genre leading, and defying alternative rock band, their inimitable sound effortlessly flirts between a multitude of styles including the classic rock foundations of Pink Floyd and King Crimson, the downturned metal of TOOL and Opeth and the expanding electronics of Neu! and Japan.

First dreamt up by Wilson in 1987 as an outlet for experimental recordings he was making outside of his synth-pop duo No-Man, Porcupine Tree expanded to become a proper band in the early ’90s in order to further explore his ideas both on record and on stage. Over the years Porcupine Tree have constantly evolved as their expansive music has shifted from pastoral psychedelic rock and ambient electronic soundscapes to experimental pop and eventually – with “21st century masterpiece” In Absentia (Classic Rock) – a propulsive metal sound all of their own. Their latter records effortlessly combined each of those genres and allowed Porcupine Tree to occupy a musical universe unique to them.

They released ten albums between 1992’s On The Sunday of Life and 2009’s The Incident. The band entered a period of hiatus following their biggest live show up to that point at the Royal Albert Hall in October 2010. Alongside the new album, the band are set to announce a live return playing 4,000 – 10,000 capacity venues across Europe in October and November 2022.
