Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson has announced his first ever solo tour which hits North America in November.
Porcupine Tree and Blackfield star will be touring in support of his new solo album, Grace For Drowning, which will be released next Tuesday, September 27th via Kscope.
Grace For Drowning is the second album released under Wilson's own name, and builds on the artistic inroads he forged with 2009's exceptionally well-received Insurgentes. A double album ('two 40-45 minute albums in the same package') Wilson has described it as "my biggest project to date".
The album will be released on CD, vinyl and download along with a Blu-ray edition of the album. The Blu-ray disc contains the album in 5.1 surround sound with accompanying video content. In addition to the video content, created by long-term collaborator Lasse Hoile, the Blu-ray disc also features bonus audio tracks, photo galleries, hand written notes and lyrics.
