From Porcupine Tree's Website:

Nil Recurring EP

08-06-2007

Porcupine Tree release a new EP in September called "Nil Recurring". It will feature 4 tracks (just under 30 minutes of music) that were written during the Fear of a Blank Planet sessions, including the title track featuring Robert Fripp on guitar, and "Cheating the Polygraph", which was premiered on the 2006 tour, but subsequently left off the Fear of a Blank Planet album. More news on availability of the EP soon.

I thought he would come out with a Special Edition of FOABP, but I guess he had this in mind instead.  Should be interesting

I hope Fripp uses his axe to great effect, and not another bloody soundscape (Sorry God!)

Just under 30 minutes of music?! Sweet, now I can add that to the Fear of a Blank Planet album and make it one disc! Perfect!

Hopefully I can buy the actual disc itself, unless they decide to do the Store-download route. Either way, this WILL be mine!
Thanks for the news-post!

There's a copy of Cheating the Polygraph floating around on bootleg's of the introducing FOABP tour...I always liked that song...felt it would've fit in quite nicely after Anesthetize.

Sooooooo excited for this. Damn, as long as this album doesn't blow it, Steven Wilson is looking at having three of my top ten albums this year with his name on them!

Awesome. I'm glad he's not suckering me into having to rebuy FoaBP for a few bonus tracks.

Great, I have always thought Cheating the Polygraph is far better than No Way Out

I knew it would be just a matter of time before we got new music from the "Fear" recording sessions. I own several underground recordings from the 2006 tour that includes the track "Cheating The Polygraph." I actually thought that this was "Nil Recurring" since it sounds very Frippy or Crimson like. I too, like others here, am excited that this will be an extension and completion to FOABP. As much as I love this album, and I do think it's brilliant, I have always thought that it could have been longer. I guess this will fill in that absence. I'm really looking forward to this!Thumbs%20Up

This is very ironic as just this morning I was listening to FOABP on the way to work and thought to myself that the only reason I didn't like FOABP as much as Deadwing & In Absentia was because it was too short....

Sweet! An "official" tracklisting that includes the new tracks! Now when I reburn the EP with the CD, I don't have to make a new tracklisting myself - I can just use this one! And going by these track times, the album as a whole will be 79:42 long! I don't know why they didnt release a longer album for this one, especially since they had two of those four songs already done... maybe they wanted to record the other two before releasing "Nil Recurring" and "Cheating The Polygraph".

Thanks for that post, Tony! Interesting that the last two tracks were just recently recorded, and not during the rest of the sessions with the other 8 songs. At least they're all pretty lenghty songs! I can't wait for this EP even MORE now!

-Marc.

I've already placed a preorder for the FOABP Limited Edition, although I'm likely to also buy Nil Recurring in addition to this to ensure the record stays in good condition.
