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.

Here are Porcupine Tree’s fall American tour dates:

Tue Sep 15 SEATTLE, WA MOORE THEATER
Wed Sep 16 PORTLAND, OR ROSELAND

Fri Sep 18 SAN FRANCISCO WARFIELD
Sat Sep 19 LOS ANGELES CLUB NOKIA
Mon Sep 21 CLEVELAND, OH HOUSE OF BLUES
Tue Sep 22 CHICAGO, IL VIC THEATER

Sat Sep 26 PHILLY ELECTRIC FACTORY
Sun Sep 27 BOSTON, MA HOUSE OF BLUES

    I am surprised they are not heading to the S.E. To much country music I guess

    My guess is they’ll add dates in Florida and Atlanta, possibly something like Austin too. This reads like a very early tour schedule to me.

    Does anyone know who PT is touring with??

    Kings X or That Guy depending on what city you are in.

    Supporting PT in Seattle, Portland, and San Francisco: That 1 Guy
    In Los Angeles: Bigelf
    Remaining Dates: King’s X

    That 1 Guy is pretty cool, so you guys getting to see him will be seeing a true “one-man band” that pulls off some pretty amazing stuff. Don’t miss out.

    Seattle/Poertland to start the USA tour. I wonder if Vancouver BC the night before.

    I didn’t see anything for Vanc BC Doug, although I believe they added a few Canadian dates at the tail end like Montreal, so who knows?

    They seriously need to add more US dates. With King’s X opening, that could be the concert of the year.

  • Brian aka Guppusmaximus

    How does an act like “That 1 Guy” actually get a spot on a tour with Porcupine Tree? I guess it is kinda entertaining but it was rather goofy. Personally, I think if PT is inviting these types of musicians they should invite Akira Jimbo. But, he may steal the show!

    I’ve never heard of King’s X…
