British progressive rock band Porcupine Tree have announced the dates for an American tour this fall, in support of an as of yet unnamed new album. Porcupine Tree's last American dates were in 2007 behind the release of their critically acclaimed Fear Of A Blank Planet album.
Since then, the band has been relatively quiet — at least by their usually very prolific standards — releasing only the FOABP companion E.P. Nil Recurring, and the acoustic live release We Lost The Skyline. The group's leader Steven Wilson has however been typically busy with his side projects No-Man, Blackfield, and Bass Communion, as well as releasing his first ever solo album, Insurgentes this past February.
Tickets for Porcupine Tree's fall American shows will go on sale April 17, except Boston and Chicago, which are on sale April 18, and San Francisco, on sale April 19.
In the meantime, fans can get the jump on tickets by registering for membership in ROABP, Porcupine Tree's fan club. Those who do so can buy advance tickets for the fall dates, as well as receive a copy of Ilosaarirock, a live album recorded on Porcupine Tree's Fear Of A Blank Planet tour. Details are available at Burning Shed, who are also the official online store for all things PT.
