The Pineapple Thief share a journey of despair to hope in Threatening War video

The Pineapple Thief

The Pineapple Thief have released a video for their track Threatening War.

The song features on the band’s latest album Dissolution, with the promo directed by Blacktide’s George Laycock and stars actor Gemma Reynolds.

Vocalist and guitarist Bruce Soord says: “When I wrote the words for Threatening War, I had in my mind the journey from despair to hope, and how we need a physical connection with people in our lives to complete that journey, if and when it happens. 

“When I saw how Blacktide had tackled this visually, it really hit home in a way I wasn’t quite prepared for. It captures the emotion of the song perfectly.”

The Pineapple Thief are gearing up for their UK and European tour with O.R.k, which will get under way in Florence on February 21. They’ll also take to the stage at this year’s HRH Prog VIII, which will take place at London’s Shepherd’s Bush Empire on October 26 and 27.
