Steven Wilson - Get All You Deserve DVD (2012)
Uscirà il 25 settembre il DVD del fortunato tour di Steven Wilson che riporta l'intera registrazione del concerto tenuto a Città del Messico. Il set dura la bellezza di due ore e conterrà l'inedito Luminol, brano che comparirà nel prossimo disco solista di Wilson.
Filmed in Mexico City and directed by long-time visual collaborator Lasse Hoile during the Grace For Drowning Tour, the set is a superb representation of the spectacular live experience that Wilson and Hoile created for the tour. Grace For Drowning was the second album released under Wilson's own name, following 2009's exceptionally well-received Insurgentes. The album, released in September 2011, entered the UK top 40 album chart at #34, both the Dutch and German national charts at #22, the US Billboard Rock album chart at #19 (#13 in independent chart) and debuted at #7 in the Polish national charts.
Following the release of Grace For Drowning, Steven embarked on his first ever solo tour, assembling a virtuoso band, featuring Marco Minnemann (drums), Nick Beggs (bass), Theo Travis (flute and sax), Adam Holzman (keys) and Niko Tsonev (guitars), to accompany him. For the shows he worked extensively with Lasse to create a show unlike anything else he had attempted with his other bands, Porcupine Tree, Blackfield, No-Man or Bass Communion.
The shows submerged fans in a rich sensory experience: rear speakers provide surround-sound effects, giant screens show off Lasse's films made specifically to accompany these songs, and cutting-edge lighting designs giving texture to each song. Get All You Deserve captures one of the key shows from the tour. Recorded at a sold-out Teatro Metropolitan in Mexico City, the gig features tracks from both Wilson's solo albums along with the new, as yet unreleased, track Luminol.

In altre news, il frontman dei Porcupine Tree ha pubblicato nella sua pagina Soundcloud un demo inedito dell'era In Absentia / Deadwing intitolato Godfearing che mi sembra molto meglio di qualsiasi cosa pubblicata su Deadwing.
