An Hour Before It's Dark has been released to almost universal acclaim. Prog Magazine said in our review: "And from the very start of the album, Marillion sound determined to grab the listener by the lapels." Over the weekend the new album had racked up over a million streams on. Spotify!
“Despite the seemingly bleak contemplations across this album - the virus, our mortality, medical science, care, AND Leonard Cohen (ha ha) - the overall feeling of the music is surprisingly upbeat," vocalist Steve Hogarth says of the new album. "I think the band are as on form as they ever were really, and the addition of Choir Noir has added another new soul and colour to things”
