Steven Wilson details Hand. Cannot. Erase.

Steven Wilson has revealed details about his upcoming album Hand. Cannot. Erase.

It’s due to launch in the UK on March 2 via Kscope and will be the follow-up to 2013’s The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories).

The Porcupine Tree mainman recently announced a run of six-UK dates to promote the new record and revealed he was working on making the shows a spectacular experience.

He said: “We’re currently developing a show that I hope will raise the bar musically and visually from my previous tours. The setlist will be based around the new album, of course, as well as casting the net further back for a few surprises.”

Last month, he released a studio update where he spoke about the inspiration behind the album.
