Steven Wilson returns with a new album and tour

Highly respected, four-time Grammy-nominated British artist Steven Wilson will release his third solo album via Kscope on February 25, 2013. Titled The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories).

Steven's current band is a collection of stellar musicians: lead guitarist Guthrie Govan, bassist Nick Beggs, Marco Minnemann on the drums, Theo Travis playing saxophone/flute, and Adam Holzman on keyboards. The record has been engineered by legendary producer/engineer Alan Parsons and consists of 6 songs, 3 of which are 10+ minute epics and all are inspired by tales of the supernatural / ghost stories from the Victorian era.

The limited deluxe 4-disc edition of the album comes in the form of a 128-page hardback book containing lyrics and ghost stories illustrated by Hajo Mueller and written by Steven Wilson. Mueller also designed the album's front cover artwork. In addition to the deluxe edition, there will be regular CD, CD/DVDV media book, Blu-Ray, and 2LP vinyl editions, with the DVDV and Blu-ray editions featuring a 5.1 mix of the album and other bonus material.

Steven and his band hit the road touring the new record from March 1, beginning in the UK and moving into Europe. The tour will continue throughout 2013, visiting many other countries for which the dates are yet to be revealed. Shows are currently announced in the UK, Germany, Italy, France, Switzerland, Norway, Denmark, Sweden, Belgium, and the Netherlands.

Tickets are nearly sold out already for these UK dates:
Friday 1 March - MANCHESTER Academy
Saturday 2 March - GLASGOW ABC
Monday 4 March - LONDON Royal Festival Hall
