New York, NY (Top40 Charts/ Shore Fire Media) - It's not often that a band will play their new album from start to finish in concert, but that is exactly what British art-rockers Porcupine Tree will do with 'The Incident' when they arrive at New York's Terminal 5 September 24th.
"A compelling album that's diverse and full of drama" (Mojo), 'The Incident' showcases the band's many strengths: exquisite melodies, instrumental virtuosity, and richly detailed paeans to madness, lost youth, and redemption.Following the album playback, they'll dip into their extensive catalogue for the second half of the show.
In concert, Porcupine Tree combine the volume and energy of Nine Inch Nails or TV on the Radio with the finely wrought melodic hooks of Radiohead. The Boston Herald praised their "unique gift for shifting sound dynamics [in] a mind-bending two-hour performance" at a recent show. With a devoted and diverse fan base, Porcupine Tree routinely sell out their U.S. theater tours.
And watch the video for "Time Flies," the single from 'The Incident' here:
Porcupine Tree are Steven Wilson (guitar, vocals), Gavin Harrison (drums), Richard Barbieri (keyboards) and Colin Edwin (bass). John Wesley (guitar) joins the ensemble on tour.
