The Future Bites Tour 2021 Update

SWNews

Sadly for the second time I am forced to postpone my tour to promote THE FUTURE BITES – the rescheduled dates were due to begin in September. While recent developments made me at least optimistic that the UK shows might have been able to go ahead (though no guarantee), the same is not true of much of the rest of … Read More

Steven Wilson – Footprints Illustrated Encyclopaedia

SWNews

‘Steven Wilson – Footprints’ is an astoundingly detailed 3 volume illustrated encyclopaedia of my musical output, from my solo work to Porcupine Tree, No-Man, Bass Communion and more. The effort and work that has gone into this by Guy M Tkach, Peter M Sieker and Chip Madinger is nothing short of astounding and I’m flattered they took on such a … Read More

New video for SELF online now!

SWNews

Steven Wilson has released a mind bending video for the track SELF, taken from his just released album THE FUTURE BITES. Watch the video here. Directed by longtime visual collaborator Miles Skarin (Crystal Spotlight), the video uses similar deep fake technology (DeepFaceLab) to that used in Channel 4’s Alternative Queen’s Speech. In the clip, Steven’s face is warped into those … Read More

THE FUTURE BITES – OUT NOW

SWNews

Today, is release day for THE FUTURE BITES, a day it seemed would never arrive! Strangely although the album was written and recorded before the pandemic, recent world events have made it somehow even more relevant to our times. So on this momentous day (for me at least) I want to send my thanks in advance to all of you … Read More

The Last Great American Dynasty (Taylor Swift cover)

SWNews

My final TFB session track of 2020 is something a bit different. To mark the end of the year I wanted to do a cover of someone else’s song from 2020 rather than one of mine, and I’ve chosen one from Taylor Swift’s fantastic Folklore album. This is a story-telling song with brilliant lyrics, and rather a lot of them. … Read More

The Future Bites Deluxe Edition Unboxing Video

SWNews

Here’s a video of me unboxing the first The Future Bites deluxe edition off the production line, with a soundtrack drawn from the exclusive and copious bonus material. A couple of the items included in the box are a secret and have been blurred in video to maintain an element of surprise, but otherwise I hope this will give you … Read More

Half-Light – The Future Bites Sessions

SWNews

Today’s session track delves back to the music I wrote for Deadwing, the movie that never was (but that may be again), a love theme between the two main characters. It was replaced on the Porcupine Tree album of the same name by a group composition, but I regret consigning it to a B-side, as I feel it’s one of … Read More

First reviews come in for The Future Bites

SWNews

Glowing reviews are starting to come in for The Future Bites – in a full page review UK magazine MOJO awards the album 4/5 and describes it as “A great grown up pop record“, opining that “(Wilson’s) solo work has seen him embracing dance, electronica and pop, and becoming all the better for it.” Another UK review in Uncut awards … Read More

Voyage 34 – The Future Bites Sessions

SWNews

The latest Future Bites session is one of my very earliest solo recordings. Voyage 34 was released under the name Porcupine Tree way back in 1992, and at the time was one of the longest singles ever released at 30 minutes! This session version is much abbreviated, but look out for a more extended updating of Brian’s 34th LSD trip … Read More
