All The Wars is the follow-up to the band’s acclaimed 2010 album, Someone Here Is Missing. While this release, along with 2008’s, Tightly Unwound, were many people’s introduction to the band, the group has spent the past 10 years quietly building up a dedicated fan base across the globe, selling over 50,000 records while nurturing its ‘bittersweet’ progressive sound.
All The Wars is the latest step for The Pineapple Thief, who over the last few years has truly emerged onto a higher stage – bigger and better tours, triumphant festival slots, recording at Peter Gabriel’s Real World studios, and artwork designed by Storm Thorgerson all give the sense of an act who is destined for greater things.
Album number nine marks another leap in the band’s progression, as frontman, Bruce Soord, continues to mature as a songwriter, and the band’s ever growing confidence and status allows it to move in bold musical directions, including the use of a 22-piece string section and a choir.
“No expense has been spared regarding the production of this record, but at its heart it’s still a rock record,” said Soord. “It’s very heavy in parts and very delicate and beautiful in others.”
Following Storm Thorgerson’s cover for Someone Here Is Missing, the artwork for All The Wars features images created by the award winning photographer, Mark Mawson, as part of his “Aqueous” series. Shots from the “Aqueous” project were recently projected onto Buckingham Palace as the background to Paul McCartney’s performance of Magical Mystery Tour during the diamond jubilee celebrations.
Fans can get a sneak peek at the forthcoming collection via a stream of the new track, “Last Man Standing,” on the All The Wars mini-site at: http://www.kscopemusic.com/thepineapplethief. The song can also be downloaded for free by signing up for The Pineapple Thief mailing list.
The Pineapple Thief will embark on a UK tour around the release of All The Wars in September.
