Marillion grace the cover of the latest issue of Prog Magazine, which is on sale now...
The band recently celebrated the release of 1989's Seasons End album with a brand new deluxe box set, and we look into the story of the album, the band's first with new singer Steve Hogarth, who replaced Fish and remains the band's frontman 34 years later. It's a story of a long hot summer, Pimm's by the pool, surprise gigs and a great record.
We also pay tribute to the late Curved Air and Sky musician Francis Monkman, Annie Haslam recalls the making of Renaissance's 1978 album A Song For All Seasons and their hit single Northern Lights, Wishbone Ash look back on the prog gem of their back catalogue Argus, Rod Argent looks back on a career from the psychedelia of The Zombies through the prog of Argent and Dave Stewart and Barbara Gaskin update us on a rare London live show.
This issue of Prog also comes with four Marillion and Prog Magazine laptop stickers, four exclusive Seasons End postcards, a 148-page Marillion eBook and a 17-track sampler from Fruits der Mer Records featuring Sendelica, Us & Them, Bevis Frond and loads more... Buy online here!
