Porcupine Tree Announce Their First New Album In Twelve Years, Debut New Track “Harridan”


Porcupine Tree‘s first new album since 2009’s “The Incident” has officially been announced. That effort is titled “Closure / Continuation” and won’t arrive until June 24th of 2022. Despite the length of time between then and now, the band have just dropped their first single from the release, “Harridan“, which you can check out below.

They commented:

“‘Harridan‘ and a few of the other new songs have been in play since shortly after the release of ‘The Incident‘. “They initially lived on a hard drive in a slowly growing computer file marked PT2012, later renamed PT2015, PT2018, and so on. There were times when we even forgot they were there, and times when they nagged us to finish them to see where they would take us.

Listening to the finished pieces, it was clear that this wasn’t like any of our work outside of the band — the combined DNA of the people behind the music meant these tracks were forming what was undeniably, unmistakably, obviously a Porcupine Tree record. You’ll hear all of that DNA flowing right through ‘Harridan’.”
