Known for their unique blend of rock, atmospherics, songwriting and dark intellectual cool, Porcupine Tree is a band whose goal is to dissolve boundaries between different music genres. The stereo version of Deadwing is scheduled for release by Lava Records on CD on April 26th, and the track “Shallow” is currently breaking into the Active Rock chart according to Radio & Records.

Porcupine Tree is comprised of Steven Wilson (lead vocals, guitars); Richard Barbieri (keyboards); Colin Edwin (bass); and Gavin Harrison (drums). Together as a band since 1993, the band is one of the UK’s most respected, pioneering underground forces with a following that spans the globe. Finding themselves consistently at the top of the British indie charts, the band has toured extensively in Europe selling in excess of 350,000 albums worldwide. Porcupine Tree made their mark across the pond in America with 1998’s Signify, followed by 1999’s Stupid Dream.
