First of all, a big thankyou for the best Marillion Weekend to date. The band are as unanimous as the fans when we say it was a beautiful weekend in every way. If you were there, then many thanks for creating an unbelievable atmosphere three nights running. If you weren't there, well, you missed an amazing vibe (see the Forums!) and you'd be mad to miss the next one (whenever that will be - leave it with us..).
NEW ALBUM NEWS
Our forthcoming baby, "Somewhere Else" released April 9 (Mark Kelly's birthday) is now available for pre-order, so if you want to be among the first to get your hands and ears on it, you can do so at www.townsendrecords.co.uk/marillion (and if you pre-order before the release date, you can also get an exclusive 3-track DVD of new songs filmed at the convention). It's a peach and we are very proud fathers.
And to preview the pre-order, we have an incredigitably fabulous new single from the baby called "See It Like A Baby" will be available as a download-only single on 26th March from iTunes and other download merchants in your area. But if you can't wait until then, visit us on MySpace at www.myspace.com/marillion NOW for sound clips from the new album.
We will commence a world tour to support "Somewhere Else" on April 14th. The initial leg of the tour comprises 3 months in Europe and all confirmed dates can be found at www.marillion.com along with how to get your hands on tickets (be quick, some dates are already sold out!). We're looking forward to it immensely
Hopefully we'll see you very soon somewhere else (once we've cleared the path and got out of the garden).
h, Ian, Mark, Pete, Steve
