Hailed as one of the English music scene’s best kept secrets; Marillion were chart aficionados during the eighties have since been one of the few names in pop to get more and more creative and fascinating album after album. The band are constantly reinventing themselves while keeping the unique sound that made them loved by millions of fans all over the world.
The new studio album “Less Is More”, released in cooperation with the band’s own label Intact, sees the band performing hits from their back catalogue in an acoustic style. It’s a chance for Marillion to shine a new light into their songs, pushing them into unexpected new musical territory that showcases the essence of their songs in an alternative, intimate and exciting format. Less is more…
Marillion have created an album of pop avant-garde experiment, depriving the songs of their original dress and reconstructing them with a new, minimal and intimate approach.
Says Steve Hogarth – “This album has exceeded our own expectations in every way – musically, spiritually and sonically so it’s perfect that fate has decreed that we work with earMUSIC/Edel – a label we respect – and Max Vaccaro, someone who demonstrably understands us and is driven by a genuine enthusiasm for our music.”
In addition to the highly anticipated release of “Less Is More”, the band will play a series of low-key acoustic concerts in the UK and Ireland.
