The Pineapple Thief Release New Video For “Threatening War” From Their New Studio Album Dissolution 

Dissolution Tour Dates in Europe & the UK Begin February 21, 2019
(Filmed & Directed by George Laycock , Blacktide Phonic/Visual - www.black-tide.co.uk )

London - With The Pineapple Thief’s Dissolution Tour Part 2, due to begin on 21st February in Italy, the band have released a new video for the track “Threatening War”, from their critically acclaimed studio album Dissolution.

WATCH THE “THREATENING WAR” VIDEO HERE: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDBdrXo4Nw0&feature=youtu.be

Frontman, composer and guitarist, Bruce Soord on seeing director George Laycock’s interpretation of the song reflects “When I wrote the words for ‘Threatening War’, I had in my mind the journey from despair to hope, and how we need a physical connection with people in our lives to complete that journey, if and when it happens. When I saw how ‘Blacktide’ had tackled this visually it really hit home in a way I wasn’t quite prepared for. It captures the emotion of the song perfectly.”

The Pineapple Thief are due to begin the second leg of their European & UK Dissolution tour in February, have confirmed they will be taking new label mates O.R.k out as main support. The first leg of the tour in September included many sold out shows and their biggest show to date at London’s prestigious O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire and will once again be joined by now full-time member Gavin Harrison on all dates.

Hi,

I don't dislike this band ... but I can't help thinking that this is the 2nd edition of PT ... and I am not sure that Gavin makes it better, although some folks love it. It's almost a replica of the same things he did mechanically with PT.

A nice band, but I'm not sure that I will be picking this up. I like the original way too much!

The original what? Pineapple Thief IMO does not have the powerful dynamics of Porcupine Tree, adding Gavin has helped their sound become more mature. 
Pineapple sound is very much an alternative rock, which is fine but I don't think the Tree had that sound, a little on Stupid Dream maybe.
