Marillion will undertake a nine date UK tour in this autumn, with the tour kicking off at Blackburn’s King George’s Hall on Sunday 18 September 2022.
The band said:
“We are once again looking forward to our shows in September in conjunction with Kilimanjaro and we can’t wait to get out there and play the new album to the fans.”
The tour follows the release of the brand new album, ‘An Hour Before It’s Dark’. The album has received rave reviews and is available in the following formats: CD+DVD Digipak / CD Digipak / Jewelbox CD / Blu-ray Softbox / 2LP Gatefold / Ltd. Coloured 2LP (Orange) plus exclusives from the band’s webstore.
‘An Hour Before It’s Dark’ – Whether it’s the last hour you were allowed to play outside as a child before you had to go home, a reference to the fight against time in relation to the climate crisis or the last minutes in a person’s life, Marillion once again put their finger on the pulse of time.
Be it social, political, or personal issues, Marillion have never minced words and have always found a way to combine them with their own unique sound. The band are known for incredible song writing, melodies, and top-notch musicianship, while swimming against the tide, not bending to norms and limitations. The first single ‘Be Hard On Yourself’ couldn’t be a better example.
“Despite the seemingly bleak contemplations across this album – the virus, our mortality, medical science, care, AND Leonard Cohen (ha ha) – the overall feeling of the music is surprisingly upbeat. I think the band are as on form as they ever were really, and the addition of Choir Noir has added another new soul and colour to things”
Founded in 1979, Marillion have, over the course of 20 studio albums, become one of the most commercially successful progressive rock bands.
