The independent band is tearing up the charts in Europe
Following the release of their new studio album Dissolution, through Kscope, The Pineapple Thief, one of the leading lights of Europe’s experimental rock domain, have released a new single “Uncovering Your Tracks.”
Frontman, composer and guitarist, Bruce Soord explains how the song continues the album’s theme which tackles the issues our “ultra-connected” society faces “In line with the concept of the album, this song is about addiction – specifically to being connected. Sharing everything you do, no matter how inane. And the constant desire to feel a rush from watching everything you share crawl it’s way around and an even bigger rush when it brings something back to you. In this case, what comes back isn’t good and ultimately leads to your undoing.”
The Pineapple Thief have just returned from the first leg of their Dissolution Tour where they enthralled audiences across Europe and the UK. Including many sold out shows and their biggest show to date at London’s prestigious O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
“Our first Dissolution tour went so well, and we had such a great time so we’ve decided to do it again,” states frontman Bruce Soord. “This time visiting some of the cities we couldn’t make the first time around. I know there are a lot of people disappointed we are not coming to their neck of the woods, but we hear you all and are definitely working on it!”
The Pineapple Thief will be joined by now full-time member Gavin Harrison on all dates.
The Pineapple Thief have an extensive live campaign planned for 2019, so look out for further dates to be announced. Tickets are available for all previously announced dates via their website.
The band’s 2016 album, Your Wilderness, produced more than four million album streams, a No. 7 in the UK Independent Charts and two extensive headline European tours culminating at London’s Islington Assembly Hall where the concert was recorded for the live release Where We Stood. Dissolution has seen the band propelled to even greater heights, having gained a No. 1 position in the UK Rock Charts and No. 22 in the German national album charts.
