Porcupine Tree are returning to North and South America in September/October 2022 for a limited series of performances in the United States, Canada, Mexico and Chile, see list of dates below – likely to be the only shows on the Closure/Continuation tour.
To coincide with today’s tour announcement, ‘Of The New Day’, the second single from ‘Closure / Continuation’ is out now:
“‘Of The New Day’ is a song of rebirth, emerging from darkness. It sounds deceptively simple, a recognisably atypical Porcupine Tree ballad, but one of PT’s aims has always been to work up complex musical ideas in a way that sounds natural. In the case of ‘Of the New Day’ the time signature is constantly shifting between bars of regular 4/4 time, to 3/4, 5/4, 6/4 and 11/4, so that the song aims to have a constant sense of change and evolution. We hope you enjoy it!”
