Tilt, the band featuring Fish alumni Steve Vantsis and Dave Stewart, have released a video for the song “Against the Rain” from the album “Hinterland” featuring Fish’s daughter Tara Nowy reprising her mother’s role from “Kayleigh” all those years ago.
So near and yet so far. Panic Room have reached 85% in their PledgeMusic campaign for their live DVD. But the gap is still such that they cannot afford to take the financial risk of hiring a professional film crew to film the show this coming Saturday.
Please don’t despair, because we have worked very hard to put together a strong Plan B for you:
We have decided to KEEP THE PLEDGE CAMPAIGN RUNNING – and in fact we will EXTEND it by a few weeks, so that it will now close at the end of July. (Many Pledge campaigns run for several months, whereas we had aimed for less than 2 months here). We hope that by taking this step, we should hopefully reach our 100% target for sure in the weeks to come!
85% is very close…..
So we DO succeed in hitting 100% in the next few weeks – which we feel confident will happen – we will THEN book a brand new Live PANIC ROOM show for the early Autumn – September / October – and THIS will be the new filming date for the Live DVD to be captured!
So, if you haven’t yet pledged, and you still want to see a Panic Room DVD, now really is the time to do it.
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!
