Porcupine Tree: Tour with Coheed Euro Fests, Live Download

BUSY SUMMER FOR UK PROGRESSIVE HARD ROCKERS

Porcupine Tree
This summer, Porcupine Tree will join up with Coheed and Cambria for a 12-date co-headlining U.S. tour that kicks off at the Hollywood Palladium in Los Angeles on August 12. Tickets go on sale to the public Friday, June 25.

And that is by no means the extent of Porcupine Tree's activity this summer.

-Porcupine Tree will headline Radio City Music Hall September 24.

-The band has released their second live concert film, Anesthetize, on DVD and Blu-Ray. Amazon sold out of the Blu-Ray version on pre-orders alone, and the DVD has notched top-10 debuts in the UK, Germany, Finland, Sweden, and Holland.

-Porcupine Tree has posted Atlanta, a complete 2-hour live performance from the Fear of a Blank Planet tour, as a download from the PT Store. All proceeds from this digital-only release will go towards Japan bass player Mick Karn's treatment for cancer.

-Porcupine Tree will play several major festivals in Europe including Roskilde (Denmark), Rock Werchter (Belgium), and Sonisphere (Spain).

-Gavin Harrison has been named "Best Progressive Drummer" for the fourth consecutive year in the 2010 Modern Drummer readers' poll.

-Steven Wilson co-wrote and sang the track "The Fountain" on Pendulum's new album Immersion.

-And Steven Wilson has launched a second career as a writer. Wilson now pens the back-page column for Electronic Musician and was recently published in the New York Times as well. Check out his words here and here.
