Fish Discusses His 'Dark' Final Album


(Prog) Fish says his last-ever album will have a "dark" vibe as a result of current world events. The former Marillion frontman is planning to step back from the music business after the release of Weltschmerz in 2017 and a following a run of final tour dates in 2018.

Translated from German, the title means "pain of the world" and Fish tells Prog exactly why he chose the name for his swan song. He says: "I look on this as a very dark album to finish off with. It will have a similar feel to Clutching At Straws.

"All you have to do is switch on the news and you think, 'Where the f*** are we going?' And that seeps down on a personal level. I have a daughter who's 25, and my partner has three kids, 19, 18 and 13. Watching their interaction with the world, I'm finding the crystals in which Weltschmerz is born - the state this planet is in. Not in a political sense, but in a soulful sense." Read more here.
