It’s been a great year for PORCUPINE TREE fans, with the release of their comeback album Closure/Continuation and an extensive tour to celebrate it. But according to frontman Steven Wilson, the band’s 2023 Summer tour may also be their last.
In a series of tweets, Wilson said that the upcoming tour will likely be the group’s final one, adding that even the comeback album’s name suggests that PORCUPINE TREE‘s ultimate fate is uncertain.
Pondering the possibilities of what lay ahead for band, Wilson wrote: “Happy new year to you all!
“First and foremost a big thank you to everyone that enjoyed the PorcupineTree Closure/Continuation album/shows, and my book ‘Limited Edition Of One’ during the past year.
“Coming in 2023 will be my new album, a 10 track 65 minute musical journey that’s kinda hard to describe, but suffice to say it’s different again, not to mention totally pretentious (in a good way!). It will be released by Virgin Music UK, more news soon.
“Meanwhile the (likely final) PorcupineTree shows will be a handful of festival appearances over the Summer, check the band’s channels for more info.
“Lots more exciting stuff (at least to me) happening, but for now I’ll leave you with my very best wishes for the year ahead, I hope it will be a wonderful one for you.”
