The Pineapple Thief announce new live Blu Ray/DVD featuring Gavin Harrison (King Crimson, Porcupine Tree)

By Joel Barrios, Rock at Night Miami’s correspondent

The Pineapple Thief have announced that they’ll release a live DVD and Blu-ray later this year. Bringing to close an unforgettable 14-date European Winter tour of their 2016 summer hit album Your Wilderness, The Pineapple Thief, led by post-progressive mastermind Bruce Soord and reinforced by Gavin Harrison (King Crimson) on drums with Darran Charles (Godsticks) on guitar, gave the sold-out Islington Assembly Hall in London a truly awe-inspiring gig on 11th February 2017.

The Pineapple Thief leader Bruce Soord says: “It was our last show of the tour and our biggest headline show ever. We had 15 cameras, a massive jib, but more importantly –a sell-out crowd! The pressure was indeed on, but it’s safe to say that the stars aligned for us that night and it turned out to be one of the most memorable performances of our career so far.”

Where We Stood showcases a powerful performance from both band regulars and guests on new tracks from Your Wilderness, including “In Exile”, “No Man’s Land” and “The Final Thing On My Mind”, and of the classics from previous albums, “Nothing At Best”, “Show A Little Love” and “Simple As That”

 

Soord adds: “We’ve thrown everything but the kitchen sink at this special edition Blu-ray. It has the full show – documentary footage and interviews and two different 5.1 surround mixes, one natural, one discrete, all in high resolution 24/96 stereo. It also has our last album Your Wilderness in stereo and surround, plus the special 8 Years Later album in stereo with a brand-new surround mix too. All of that plus five acoustic tracks – also stereo and surround – and loads of bonus videos. This is without doubt the definitive Your Wilderness release. Watching the show back, it’s reminded us of how much we’re looking forward to getting back on stage again in September for Part 2 of the ‘Your Wilderness’ tour. If it turns out to be half as much fun as the last one then we simply cannot wait!”

In addition, a deluxe 12-inch four disc edition will also be available featuring a 48-page hardback book which includes additional photography from the gig and backstage by photographer Kevin Nixon – and two audio CDs containing the live concert recordings with a bonus live recording.
