Steven Wilson’s Songs & Stories
His latest solo effort, The Raven That Refused To Sing (And Other Stories), is due out Feb. 25. A limited 4-disc deluxe edition (Blue-ray, DVD and two CDs) package will be available, packaged in a 128-page hardcover book that includes lyrics, short stories by Wilson and images and illustrations by Hajo Mueller.
Wilson will be joined on tour by the same band that record the new album – Guthrie Govan (lead guitar), Adam Holzman (keyboards), Theo Travis (flutes, saxes), Nick Beggs (bass guitar, stick), and Marco Minnemann (drums). Wilson promises that the visual elements of the gigs will be taken to the next level, “making the show even more of a cinematic experience.”
