Porcupine Tree have teamed up with the Teenage Cancer Trust and the Soundwaves Art Foundation to create a limited edition series of prints using the soundwaves from their song Harridan. Sales of the prints will help raise money to support young people with cancer.
The prints, which were created by Soundwaves artist Tim Wakefield, are based on the actual soundwave Harridan, which featured on the band's 2022 album Closure/Continuation. Proceeds will be donated to the Teenage Cancer Trust.
The release is accompanied by a set of four ‘Originals’ autographed by the individual band members, which include handwritten lyrics for the song. There are also limited edition singular prints signed by Steven Wilson, Gavin Harrison and Richard Barbieri, and a further singular print signed by Tim Wakefield.
"Every day, seven young people aged 13-24 hear the words 'you have cancer'," a Teenage Cancer Trust spokesperson tells Prog. "They will each need specialised nursing care and support to get them through it. Teenage Cancer Trust is the only UK charity dedicated to meeting this vital need."
