Steven Wilson confirms 4th solo album and tour

Steven Wilson has confirmed his fourth solo album is to be called Hand. Cannot. Erase. and it’s set for launch in March next year via Kscope.

He’ll support the release with a six-date UK tour the same month, with further dates to be announced across Europe in due course.

Wilson says: “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 into my past for a few surprises.”

Hand. Cannot. Erase. follows his acclaimed 2013 album The Raven That Refused To Sing And Other Stories. Tour tickets go on sale at 10am on Friday (November 21).

Earlier this month, the Porcupine Tree frontman issued an update from the studio where he revealed the inspiration for the upcoming album.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
