The EPK for ‘STCBM’ has now been posted on Youtube (link below) featuring further tantalizing insights into the writing/recording process, soundclips from all the new songs and a few images of the artwork adorning the special, pre-order ‘campaign’ edition available from Racket Records. As the proud owner of previous such editions – ‘Anoraknophobia’ (2001), ‘Marbles’ (2004) and ‘Happiness is the Road’ (2008) – I can testify that these are high quality presentations and guaranteed to appeal to ‘old-school’ rock fans like myself who still appreciate eye candy to go with our ear candy. Need convincing?
Witness the moment ‘Happiness hits the doormat’ for this excited recipent back in 2008:
As for the new record, the official band statement reads thus:
“The mixes are complete and the album will be mastered early next week.
We’d like to thank you all again for your faith during the making of this album and huge thanks to everyone has already pre-ordered the album from us. With over 72 minutes of music and 8 songs we hope it will be worth the wait!
We are gearing up now for the UK tour which starts 9th September (http://www.marillion.com/tour) and then onto what seems like permanent touring until the end of the year. We hope we can see many of you on the road.
It’s been quite a journey so far and we’d advise you to be part of it!”
