Marillion announce F E A R

F E A R

Marillion announce the name of their new album, “F*** Everyone And Run”. As lead singer Steve Hogarth describe it:

What’s in a name?……

All worthwhile human impulses come from love. And all negative and destructive human impulses come from fear.

This album is called Fuck Everyone and Run or F.E.A.R.

This title is adopted not in anger or with any intention to shock. It is adopted and sung (in the song “New Kings”) tenderly, in sadness and resignation inspired by an England, and a world, which increasingly functions on an “Every man for himself” philosophy. I won’t bore you with examples, they’re all over the newspapers every day.

There’s a sense of foreboding that permeates much of this record. I have a feeling that we’re approaching some kind of sea-change in the world – an irreversible political, financial, humanitarian and environmental storm. I hope that I’m wrong. I hope that my FEAR of what “seems” to be approaching is just that, and not FEAR of what “is” actually about to happen.

The album will be released on September 9th 2016, and the final date for pre-orders is 17th June. You can pre-order now on Pledge Music. You know you want to!

    I will not be buying this album. I am a longtime fan of the band but I will not have a record with that title in my house. Totally unncessary to use that word on an album title, no matter what the intentions. Sad day.

    More offended by a bad word that any of the terrible things that make people use bad words?

    And yet, I’ve got albums with the word god in them, evidence of ignorance and stupidity by the musicians, yet I’ve still got the albums.
