Porcupine Tree announce first new record in twelve years; share new track “Harridan”

Posted by on November 2, 2021


Porcupine Tree‘s have announced a new record, Closure / Continuation, which will not be released until mid next year, on June 24th, 2022. This will be their first new release in 12 years following 2009’s The Incident.

Their first single from the release, “Harridan,” can be streamed below.

The band said this:

“Harridan and a few of the other new songs have been in play since shortly after the release of The Incident. They initially lived on a hard drive in a slowly growing computer file marked PT2012, later renamed PT2015, PT2018, and so on. There were times when we even forgot they were there, and times when they nagged us to finish them to see where they would take us.

Listening to the finished pieces, it was clear that this wasn’t like any of our work outside of the band — the combined DNA of the people behind the music meant these tracks were forming what was undeniably, unmistakably, obviously a Porcupine Tree record. You’ll hear all of that DNA flowing right through ‘Harridan’.”

Closure / Continuation is available for presale.
