Steven Wilson announces North American tour

Steven Wilson has announced a run of North American shows in 2016.

He previously revealed a European tour, which starts in January. And he’ll head back across the Pond in March for more dates, starting in Toronto on the 1st of the month.

Wilson will release an “interim” album entitled on January 22. The six-track is designed to bridge the gap between this year’s Hand. Cannot. Erase. and his next full-length release.

The album, featuring contributions from Adam Holzman, Nick Beggs, Guthrie Govan, Dave Kilminster, Craig Blundell, Marco Minnemann, Chad Wackerman and Theo Travis, is available for pre-order (opens in new tab).
