    Roadrunner Records Signs Porcupine Tree

    Post by Sykesy on Sat May 16, 2009 7:23 pm

    Roadrunner Records have just announced the signing of British progressive rock band Porcupine Tree, one of the most difficult-to-categorize yet innovative bands making music today. The band’s music ranges from psychedelic trip-hop to progressive rock, and a compendium of other sounds in between. Porcupine Tree have already been a part of the international Roadrunner family; they have been signed to Roadrunner Europe since 2006 and are now transitioning to all territories outside Japan.

    Senior VP of A&R for Roadrunner Monte Conner says, "Porcupine Tree have been making vital and important music for many years now but over the last few years in particular, that music has been reaching many new ears. Roadrunner hopes to not only continue that growth here in the U.S. but accelerate it and expose the world to the massive talent this band has. I am honored to welcome Steven Wilson and Porcupine Tree to the Roadrunner fold."

    The band is fronted by singer/guitarist Steven Wilson, who, in addition to his critical acclaim with Porcupine Tree, is also known for his work producing other artists, such as Swedish progressive metal group (and now labelmates) Opeth and Norwegian chanteuse Anja Garbarek. Porcupine Tree have released three albums through Lava/Atlantic: In Absentia, Deadwing, and the Grammy-nominated Fear Of A Blank Planet, which was recognized as "Best Surround Sound" album in 2007.

    The album will contain a 50 minute long continuous song cycle, along with three additional "shorter" songs. Roadrunner plans to release the album on September 22nd. The band will embark on a U.S. tour to coincide with the album hitting stores.

    Thanks for the report to Smnnews.com.
