Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

The Pineapple Thief, one of the leading lights of Europe’s experimental rock domain, led by post-progressive mastermind Bruce Soord and reinforced by Gavin Harrison (King Crimson) on drums, recently announced the multi format release of “Nothing But The Truth” on Kscope on 22nd October. Today the band presents the performance clip for “Our Mire”, a track from their latest studio release Versions Of The Truth.” Watch it below.

Bruce Soord comments I remember when we wrote ‘Our Mire’ I was thinking how I couldn’t wait to play this one live. Sadly, the live shows went AWOL so it was a great feeling to be able to play this together, even if it was for one precious day. We talk about how this song came together on the upcoming Blu-ray. Listening to it now, it reminds me how much of a collaboration the process was. Gavin and I constructed the song, Gavin pushing me in different directions I wouldn’t have dreamed of myself. And with the addition of Jon and Steve’s parts, it became a classic TPT production. I’m very proud of it.”

The band have also announced that they will be making their highly anticipated return to the US and Canada in spring 2022. Tickets go on general sale on Friday 27th August at 12pm EDT for early release tickets fans can sign up to the bands mailing list / or track them @Bandsintown

The band are hugely excited to be heading back to North America after an immensely successful live debut there, Bruce Soord comments “We toured North America for the first time in 2019 and I seem to recall that at the end of every show I told the crowd ‘we’ll be back’. And here we are! To play in North America is a rare privilege for European bands so to make our return is a great feeling. The atmosphere there is electric. We are playing in a bunch of new places a lot of people shouted for when we missed them last time, like Texas. North America was also where Gavin was given his ‘bell’ by a fan, which he went on to enjoy hitting live on stage every time I made a minor fluff (obviously an extremely rare occasion). No doubt it will be making an appearance on our return!”

Following the release of their latest studio album “Versions Of The Truth” in September 2020, the band were preparing to start the album’s live campaign, when like so many other artists their plans were put on hold by the continuing global pandemic. Eager to still perform and connect with their fans across the globe, in April 2021, The Pineapple Thief filmed an extravagant on demand live event entitled “Nothing But The Truth” directed by band videographer George Layc**k (Blacktide Phonic/Visual).

Bruce Soord explains “The Pineapple Thief is equally about the studio and the stage, so it was hugely disappointing that we were unable to tour, especially as we were excited to be able to perform the new album “Versions Of The Truth” live for everyone. Being able to do this film, especially under the circumstances, was invaluable. It was such an alien time and an alien thing to do. Yes, we had all performed in front of cameras before, but this was different. We were playing a brand-new set, one time only, to stream to every corner of the globe, standing in a circle on our little islands with cameras everywhere. The pressure was on. We simply had to nail it!

We all knew we did not want to shoot a film of us standing on stage staring at an empty room. We wanted something special, something ‘cinematic’ so we have created something unique and something very, very special that I am proud to have been a part of. I can’t wait for people to see and hear it. It really is the icing on the cake to see our show being released in a ‘physical’ format. For the first time we have included a Dolby Atmos immersive mix on the Blu Ray as well as DTS-HD 5.1 and high-definition stereo. The deluxe edition is wonderful and I for one will give it pride of place in my collection. A special souvenir of a special day.”

The Pineapple Thief’s 2018 anthemic release “Dissolution” garnered worldwide acclaim from both media and fans, earning them their first UK Top 40 album, #1 UK Rock and Metal album and #22 on the German album charts. It took them on two extensive sold-out European headline tours and their first ever tour of North America. “Versions Of The Truth” raised the standard yet again by delivering, quite possibly, one of the most important rock albums of 2020.
