steven wilson new album and tour

Steven Wilson announces his new plans -
    “I’m happy to announce the first tour dates to promote my forthcoming album ‘Hand. Cannot. Erase.’, starting in the UK before hitting Europe. We are currently developing a show that I hope will raise the bar both musically and visually from my previous tours, with a set list based around the new album (of course), as well as casting the net further back into my songwriting past for a few surprises."

.. er "raise the bar"..blimey, last years Raven tour was spectacular enough. Expect world tour dates to follow.
The cleverly titled ‘Hand. Cannot. Erase.’ is due in February and the tour begins in the UK in March (better get those tickets now they'll sell out quickly - from Ticket Master)

‘Hand. Cannot. Erase.’ has been recorded at the mighty AIR Studios, yes that's the one founded by George Martin in 1969 in London's Oxford St only now it's on version 3 and is relocated to Hampstead in North London.
And with the typical Wilson eye for detail on any of his projects here's two 6 minute shorts (Pt 1 & 2) by Lasse Hoile of the band working at AIR Studios last month, including previews of the new album as a work in progress.
The man explains it all -
