Steven Wilson has announced that he will embark on a UK and European tour in March and April 2015 to coincide with the release of his awaited fourth solo album that we now know will be called Hand. Cannot. Erase. and is due for release in March 2015 on Kscope. Full details about the upcoming album will be revealed shortly. Below you can see his upcoming shows.
Here is a nice gesture. Steven Wilson and friend Mariusz Duda (Riverside, Lunatic Soul) have teamed up to record a song together, and for a very special reason. Alec Wildey, a fan and member of the Porcupine Tree and Steven Wilson street teams, has passed away after battling a cancer of the lymphatic system and liver cancer at the age of just 26. With a short time left, Alec emailed Steven Wilson to ask if it was possible that his two favourite musicians could set one of his poems, "The Old Peace" to music. To honor him, the song "The Old Peace" with Alec's lyrics is now available for purchase and download. All profits go to raising money for cancer charities.

Porcupine Tree mainman Steven Wilson is what they call a busy man. Time for a little update on his current endeavors.
Most important points to remember: the mixing for the forthcoming Opeth album has been completed, and the much-anticipated collaboration project between Wilson and Opeth's Mikael Åkerfeldt - tentatively dubbed Storm Corrosion - has completed writing material for the debut album.
Here's the full update: "Last year was pretty much a year without any new music from me, I've been working very hard in the studio on various projects. Firstly, we finished mixing the incredible new Opeth album a few days ago, keep an eye on their website for details on that. Mikael and I also took the opportunity while he was here to finish writing our collaboration album - there's still a lot of recording work to do, but this should definitely be out in early 2012. The new Steven Wilson solo record is still on track for September release, and I think the next two King Crimson remixes (Lark's Tongues in Aspic and Starless and Bible Black) will be out around the same time. I'm now working on new stereo and 5.1 mixes of another very famous 70's progressive album for a deluxe reissue this year, can't say more about that just yet. Last but not least, over the last year I worked on and off on a new Bass Communion album called Cenotaph, which is a kind of sequel to Ghosts on Magnetic Tape - news on when this will be released when I have it. I think that's enough for now! Off on tour with Blackfield soon."
