As highlighted in our press release yesterday, part of the funds raised from our new pre-order will be used to help us to tour more extensively next year. So then...we already have South America and North America in the pipeline for 2016 (dates will be announced soon), but where else should we come and play? Looking forward to reading your suggestions..... ... See moreSee less
Neil DeRosaIf you come to Boston, not The Paradise rock club! Although it was amazing seeing you for the first time when you came a few years go, the club is a nightmare.
A new venue opened in Cambridge called The Sinclair. Work looking into!
Can't wait till you come back to North America! :) <32 minutes ago
Gary PageDe La Warr Pavilion in Bexhill, East Sussex is a great venue. In the last few years Suede, John Grant, Band of Horses, The Decemberists and many more have played there. A really great South Coast alternative to Brighton3 minutes ago · 1
Graham JohnsonCornwall please. More specific than that would be Falmouth. Even more specific would be my back garden. Plenty of beer and crisps. Let me know coz I'll have to move the rotary line 😉9 minutes ago · 5
MarillionWell it’s that time again. You’ve been asking us when you can pre-order the next Marillion album. That time is now!
As you know, we have spent much of the year holed up at our studio, The Racket Club, jamming, writing and recording. It’s still early days but the initial jams are sounding like we really have the potential for something truly outstanding. There’s still a lot of work to be done and we can’t be sure when we’ll have it finished but our hope is that our 18th studio album (as yet untitled) will be ready for release some time in early 2016.
We’d like to offer you, the ever-faithful, the chance to pre-order it now. This time, however, we are excited to announce that our pre-order campaign will be bigger and better! It has become obvious to us however that this campaign has outgrown what we can achieve alone.
Marillion who, with your help, literally invented “Crowdfunding” (or “the Direct to Fan” model now so prevalent in the music business) back in 1997, have decided to join forces with the new masters of the art, PledgeMusic.
We consider PledgeMusic to be the best of the crowdfunding companies and have decided, after much thought and many meetings, that PledgeMusic offers the band and our fans the most exciting possibilities. Albums sold through PledgeMusic are chart-eligible giving Marillion a shot at a good chart position.
PledgeMusic have offices worldwide with many more staff than Racket and will make the entire process more manageable and, we are assured, even more customer-friendly than the high standard of service we normally provide.
As you will see, this also gives us the means to add even more items and experiences for you to choose from. We hope this campaign will raise more money than ever before so that we can fund a marketing campaign deserving of our album across many territories. This campaign will also aim to finance a longer and more impressive tour enabling us to reach more of you with a knockout show production.
PledgeMusic have the same level of great customer service that we pride ourselves on and totally understand the relationship that we have with our fans, so you can order with the knowledge that you are in safe hands.
We hope that you will be as excited as we are at this news and we thank you, as always, for your love and extraordinary support. Many bands say it, but WE know it. We have the best fans in the world. After all, together we started this thing!

Tsead BruinjaLooking forward to hearing this and I will order it eventually, but I think it is a real shame that there are no cheaper options for the blu ray. Steven Wilson gives his fans the choice and doesn't make them pay over 200 euros for a surround mix. I would love to hear an explanation for this.18 hours ago · 1
Stuart RussellWill buy one of the smaller editions; fancy the big box but the price is shocking compared to similar 'sized' bands and doesn't reflect the contents.
Looking forward to it nonetheless22 hours ago · 1
