Fish has been giving updates on the progress of his new album “Feast of Consequences” over the past months. Today we get a glimpse of what the deluxe edition of the album will look like, with a 100 page hardback book filled with Mark Wilkinson’s artwork.
This is the precisely the sort of thing artists need to do to sell physical product in a day of low-margin download sales. There is likely to be a pre-order campaign, much as he did with his previous studio album, 2007′s “13th Star”.
Six years is a long gap between albums, but I’m confident it will be worth the wait. The album is due out in the Summer, with a lot of the new material to be played on his UK tour in May, with 13 dates covering about as much of the UK as it’s possible to do in two week tour.
