The Pineapple Thief have announced what they're calling their "biggest ever European" tour for September, October and November, as well as Turkish dates for January 2021. The band also announced that they would be releasing a new album later this year.

At the same time drummer Gavin Harrison is auctioning off one of his drum kits which he used in his earlier days of Porcupine Tree to raise money for the Multiple Sclerosis Society. 

Harrison used the Sonor Designer kit on the Porcupine Tree albums Deadwing (2005) and Fear Of A Blank Planet (2007), OSI's Blood (2009) and Fire Make Thunder (2011) and Steven Wilson's 2008 debut solo album Insurgentes

You can see the drum kit below and bid on it.
