Steven Wilson has announced details of To The Bone – his expansive, brilliant fifth album - and a major 2018 UK tour including a return to one of the country’s most iconic venues, the Royal Albert Hall.

A gloriously dynamic modernist pop record as imagined by the UK’s biggest underground artist, To The Bone will be released on August 18th.

Fusing driving futurist rock and spectral electronics to elegiac hyper-space ambience and dizzying, squalling guitars, To The Bone is Steven Wilson’s hat-tip to the hugely ambitious progressive pop records of his youth (think Peter Gabriel’s So, Talk Talk’s Colour of Spring, Tears for Fears Seeds of Love).

Lyrically, the album’s eleven tracks veer from the paranoid chaos of the post-truth era and the creeping self-loathing of the technology age to steely fly-on-the-wall observations of the everyday lives of religious fundamentalists with a welcome shot or two of wide-eyed escapism. Sonically and melodically stunning, To The Bone is a high definition snapshot of the disconcerting times we live in.
