DTS (Digital Theater Systems, Inc.) (Nasdaq: DTSI) entertainment label, DTS Entertainment (DTSE,) announces a May 10th street date for surround music version of notable British rock band Porcupine Tree’s new album Deadwing. DTS Entertainment previously released the 5.1-channel surround version of the Porcupine Tree’s critically acclaimed In Absentia in March 2004, which received the 2004 Surround Music Award for Best Mix: Non-Orchestral.

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.

The DTSE 5.1-channel surround version DVD-A of Deadwing offers a wealth of bonus features, including:

* Exclusive surround re-mixes of all nine original songs
* Three new bonus tracks: “Mother And Child Divided,” “Revenant,” and “Half-Light”
* Film short on the making of Deadwing
* Album Trailer
* Gallery of more than 100 photos

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. Touring in support of Stupid Dream, Porcupine Tree quickly built a US following and received airplay on a variety of radio formats. For more information, log onto
