THE PINEAPPLE THIEF DISSOLUTION Limited 180gram Audiophile Vinyl LP

Overview:
THE UK'S FUTURE ART ROCK STARS BUILD ON RECENT SUCCESSES WITH NEW ALBUM 'DISSOLUTION'

THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED SECOND RECORD TO FEATURE THE KING CRIMSON / PORCUPINE TREE DRUMMER GAVIN HARRISON

'Dissolution' is the highly anticipated follow-up album to 2016's 'Your Wilderness' and is the band's second album to feature King Crimson and Porcupine Tree drummer Gavin Harrison, spurring The Pineapple Thief on as leaders of Europe's experimental rock domain. Their efforts on 'Your Wilderness' produced 4m+ album streams, a #7 in the UK Independent Charts and two extensive headline European tours culminating at London's Islington Assembly Hall where the concert was recorded for the live release 'Where We Stood'.

The new material establishes The Pineapple Thief's intent to elevate themselves to new heights, with a desire to develop their songwriting and technical capabilities, and with artwork created by iconic design agency Stylorouge, whose previous work includes Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Blur and British film Trainspotting. The album concept tells of the often dark consequences of living in a society in which everything is played out on a public stage, a theme paralleled in the cover art, which was created by 'glitching' the original photographs.

Songwriter Bruce Soord explains "In a time when we are supposed to be bound closer together than ever, I have never felt so apart from the world. We are living through a revolution and right now I am not sure it's a good one. Lyrically this is the most vivid I have been."

The band recorded Dissolution independently across the UK, including at Gavin's 'Bourne Place' studio in London and Bruce's 'Soord Studios' in Somerset, sharing their ideas via instant messaging. The mixing was handled by Soord and Harrison and mastering by the band's keyboardist Steve Kitch. The penultimate song "White Mist" also features experimental guitarist David Torn (David Bowie) providing a bedding of abstract, off-kilter sounds.

This single LP edition of 'Dissolution' is pressed to audiophile 180g vinyl and features a 4-page booklet.
