Hot off the heels of Steven Wilson’s excellent Insurgentes solo album, this was posted on Porcupine Tree‘s blog about a new PT record in 2009:

Writing for the next Porcupine Tree studio record is well underway, with the band recently spending 2 weeks secluded in the English countryside working on new tracks. Recording of these pieces and a new 35 minute Steven Wilson song cycle is due to start in February, and tour plans are being put in place from September onwards following release of the new album.

I hope it’s as good as Insurgentes or at least much better than PT’s last two “band” offerings.

Steven Wilson is also going out on tour with Aviv Geffen next month:

16th Jan – Rotunda Club, Krakow, Poland
17th Jan – Postbanhof, Berlin, Germany
18th Jan – Knust, Hamburg, Germany
20th Jan – Luxor, Koln, Germany
21st Jan – Melkweg, Amsterdam, Netherlands
22nd Jan – Ampere, Munich, Germany
24th Jan – Cafe de la Danse, Paris, France
27th Jan – Proud Galleries, London, UK

The band will be the full Blackfield line up (with Tomer Z, Seffy Efrati, and Eran Mittelman).  There will be a few Blackfield songs performed, but most of the songs will be from Aviv’s forthcoming debut English language solo album (produced by Trevor Horn).

    Lets hope it’s better than Fearofpigsinablanket.

    Insurgents is…kind of awful in a really self-induglent way. It’s like, okay, we get it, you’re a genius, but where are the songs? Meh.

      I really dig Insurgentes… it’s more subdued than In Absentia or other PTree. Yeah, I hear ya on the whole “songs” issue, but then again, I like tons of music that is decidedly non-songy. :)
