Steven Wilson has some new swag available for fans ahead of the holiday season. The veteran British prog-rocker will drop a new live set “Home Invasion: In Concert at the Royal Albert Hall” in multiple formats on Nov. 2 via Eagle Rock.
“Home Invasion” was filmed and recorded earlier this spring at a sold-out show held March 29 at London's historic Royal Albert Hall in support of the four-time Grammy nominee's latest solo album 2017's To the Bone. The concert film features the entire 21-song setlist from the show and includes tracks from the new album along with material from across the ex-Porcupine Tree star's three-decade career.
The concert looks as good as it sounds with multiple cameras angles, offering perspectives from all over the stage, which enhances the viewing and listening experience rather than acting as a distraction. Although focusing early in the set with tracks from the new album like “Nowhere Now” and “Pariah,” which features a duet with singer Ninet Tayeb, Wilson begins to mix things up as the night progresses, pulling two tracks from his 4th studio album Hand. Cannot. Erase., including the concert film's namesake “Home Invasion” along with “Regret #9.” Porcupine Tree fans are not ignored, particularly in the second set, which sees Wilson winding up the night with fan favorites like “Sleep Together,” “Even Less” and “The Sound of Muzak” before closing the show with the title track from his 2013 solo album The Raven That Refused to Sing.
Bonuses include three songs not contained in the concert, which were filmed during pre-show rehearsal “Routine,” “Hand Cannot Erase” and “Heart Attack in a Layby.” Other perks include interview footage with Wilson, filmed over the course of his three-night residency at Royal Albert Hall.
“Home Invasion” can be pre-ordered here in a variety of bundles in CD, DVD, Blu-ray, digital video and audio formats. Check out a recently posted video of Wilson performing “Song of I" from the Royal Albert Hall concert film above.
Wilson will launch his 2018 fall tour of North America on Nov. 15 in Vancouver, British Columbia, at The Vogue and will wrap up his touring year on Dec. 21 in San Antonio, Texas, at Aztec Theatre. Grab your tickets now at AXS. For all the latest details on Steven Wilson, click here.
