New Marillion Album, FEAR, Set For September

Marillion FEARMarillion has been a solid fixture in music since the early ’80s. From their first album, Script For A Jester’s Tear (1983) until their last, Sounds That Can’t Be Made (2012), the band has produced a stunning array of music over their eighteen studio sets, including the two volume Happiness Is The Road from 2008. But, for a fan, even four years is too long a wait for new music.

On September 23, Marillion will release their next album entitled FEAR (or Fuck Everyone And Run or F*** Everyone And Run), As in usual Marillion manner, the album, and the songs contained therein, look closely at the world and its present brand of grief including the modern day attack of capitalism (“New Kings”), and politics (“El Dorado”). The new album will feature five new tracks, three in multi-parts (“The New Kings”, “El Dorado”, “The Leavers”, “White Paper”, “Living In FEAR”).

FEAR was financed though the PledgeMusic platform that has become a de facto standard for many established bands to avoid a contracted situation with a major label. With finished music, they merely need to contract for sales muscle from any established label. In this case, it’s earMUSIC, who will oversee the distribution of the finished album.

The album will be available as CD, DD, a first edition only SACD, and vinyl LP. (But you should see what was available during their financing run with PledgeMusic!)

Currently, the band is involved in a massive supporting tour that will take them to many places.

2CD Marillion Live Set To Arrive In July

Marillion A Sunday NightWhat can be said about a band that never quite made the mainstream and yet holds the rapt attention of so many music fans? That’s the legacy of Marillion, a band with one of the more rabid followings in Rock and Roll. Marillion formed in the late ’70s, brandishing their style of Progressive music to excellent results.  To date, the band has more than 15 studio albums including the Misplaced Childhood set from 1985.

Strangely enough, the band continues to do well throughout the world markets except for the US. It is reasons like these that have me confused with the American markets.  Nevertheless, Marillion continues to entertain and delight a lot of fans no matter where they’re placed.

On March 10th of 2013, the band convened at their usual Marillion weekend held in The Netherlands. Their show was recorded and is now planned for a 2CD Live release.

Scheduled for July 22, Eagle Rock Entertainment plans to release A Sunday Night Above The Rain, where Marillion displayed their musical talents on all of the songs from their then recently released, Sounds That Can’t Be Made (2012), and a selection of classic tunes from their extensive repertoire. The live set will be released as the noted 2CD set, as well as DD. A Sunday Night Above The Rain will contain 13 songs in all (track-list below).
