Marillion has given fans more details about her upcoming 19th album. In a YouTube video posted on December 9, bassist Pete Trewavas described Fear’s 2016 follow-up as sounding “very positive” so far.
The band began working on their as-yet-untitled album several years ago, and keyboardist Mark Kelly revealed: “Since the confinement, we have been playing intensively for an hour a day, sometimes two, but we have reached the stage where I have staged. quite a few of those jams in about 30-35 different things.
“In the last few days, we’ve selected our 10 favorites, each of us in secret, and we’ve shared it all with Mike [producer Michael Hunter], and after that, he’s going to say, ‘Okay, okay, these are the things that we’re all excited about and that we’re going to work on over the next several months that will hopefully take shape as an album. ”
Although the exact direction of the music has yet to be determined, guitarist Steve Rothery revealed, “It’s quite diverse in terms of the styles that we have here.” He described that the structure sounded scarier in sunlight than Fear until now.
However, singer Steve ‘H “Hogarth told fans that the lyrics will not be as angry as Fear.” I deliberately set out to try not to write anything about the pandemic or what it has done to all of us because I thought every other artist on Earth is doing it now. By the time we get this album out, even if it’s not the last thing anyone wants to hear right now, it certainly will be by the time we get this album out, so I was avoiding it at all costs.
“Having said that, I found him crawling; I just couldn’t stop him. I’m writing about how I feel, what I see in the world, which is what I’ve always written about, so I found him crawling against my will so that there will be references in it, but I think you will have to look for them. To make an honest statement in 2020 about anything without it sneaking in would be dishonest because it is in the back of our minds. ”
Although the band is unable to perform their regular Christmas concert due to current COVID-19 restrictions, Hogarth has announced that they will be participating in an H Natural live broadcast on December 19 at 7 pm UK time. Tickets can be purchased through the Marillion website.
