Porcupine Tree take aim at ego in crazy new video for Rats Return

From Loudersound.

UK prog rockers Porcupine Tree take direct aim at dictatorial ego and self-interest in their crazy new video for Rats Return, which you can watch below.

The song is taken from Closure/Continuation, the band’s first new album since 2009’s The Incident, and which will be released through Music For Nations on June 24.

“This song is about those who claim to have the interests of the people at heart, but when it comes down to it there is only ego and self-interest,”explains Steven Wilson. “I find myself reflecting on what sort of person would actually be so driven as to want to rule over a whole nation, and aren’t these people by definition the very last people that should be allowed to do so? That rats will always save themselves first.”

Porcupine Tree have previously released videos for Harridan, Of The New Day and Herd Culling.

Closure/Continuation will be available as a seven track album on standard CD/double vinyl/coloured vinyl or limited cassette. The deluxe LP version comes on audiophile approved crystal clear vinyl  as a 3xLP 45rpm boxset with two bonus tracks; the deluxe CD & Bluray boxset comes with three bonus tracks, instrumental versions, and high resolution 96/24 stereo, 5.1 and Dolby Atmos versions of the album, all housed in an exclusive art book.  Pre-order Closure/Continuation.

    PORCUPINE TREE The Incident (2009 UK 2-CD album set - Like 'Fear Of A Blank Planet', 'The Incident', Porcupine Tree's tenth studio album, is an elaborate conceptual piece fuelled by a 21st century cocktail of MTV, sex, prescription drugs, video games, the internet, terminal boredom and subsequent escape, taking the listener on a thrilling audio journey. In turns haunting, desolate, hypnotic and euphoric, its centre-piece is the title track - a stunning 55-minute musical statement thatbreaks down into 14 separate and often diverse [though interlinked] vignettes. Beginning slowly with 'Occam's Razor', before gaining momentum and intensity with 'The Blind House', 'Drawing The Line' and 'The Incident' itself, the group's masterful manipulation of sounds and textures is never overlooked. The album is completed by four standalone compositions all housed on a separate CD to stress their independence from the record's main 14-part suite!)
