Porcupine Tree

Porcupine Tree are hitting the road in September, having mapped out a short US tour hitting major cities including NYC on 9/24 at Terminal 5 with King's X. Tickets are on AMEX pre-sale, and go on sale to gen pop on Friday at noon. For the superfans, the band is currently offering a presale for all dates to members of the Residents of A Blank Planet fan club. Fan club members can also get their hands on an exclusive live disc:

Ilosaarirock is the complete 75 minute performance from the Ilosaarirock festival in Finland in 2007, considered by the band to be one of the best concerts from the Fear of a Blank Planet tour. The recording of the concert has been remixed from the multi-tracks made by national Finnish radio to the usual high standard associated with PT live releases. Although it contains a few familiar favorites, most of the concert consists of tracks from the then recent album, and this is the first time that live versions of the Fear of a Blank Planet songs have been officially released. -[Myspace]

In related PT news, drummer Gavin Harrison's side project, 05Ric, have released their new album Circles. Pick that up here. Gavin Harrison has also done time with the latter version of King Crimson.
