Porcupine Tree have premiered a new song titled “Harridan.” This track is from the band’s new album “Closure / Continuation,” which will be released on June 24.
The group commented:
“‘Harridan‘ and a few of the other new songs have been in play since shortly after the release of ‘The Incident‘. “They initially lived on a hard drive in a slowly growing computer file marked PT2012, later renamed PT2015, PT2018, and so on. There were times when we even forgot they were there, and times when they nagged us to finish them to see where they would take us.
Listening to the finished pieces, it was clear that this wasn’t like any of our work outside of the band — the combined DNA of the people behind the music meant these tracks were forming what was undeniably, unmistakably, obviously a Porcupine Tree record. You’ll hear all of that DNA flowing right through ‘Harridan’.”
