Porcupine Tree Information
Porcupine Tree Information, Porcupine Tree was put together by Steven Wilson in 1987 to form the missing psychedelic yet trance rock, that was seen earlier in the 1970's from bands such as Tangerine Dream, Neu! and Can. They have progressively leaned towards metal music in their later albums. Porcupine Tree emphasizes the importance of visuals in their live performances. In 2002 they worked closely with photographer and film maker Lasse Hoile for their promotional tour for their 'In Absentia' album, who created a complete distinctive image for the band. The album went on to reach Metal Storm's webzine #7 of Top 20 albums of 2002.
The band started working on their newest album project 'The Incident' in February of 2009. A tour has been announced to showcase their new music, as they have already set dates to play at venues in Boston, LA, Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Cleveland.
