The Pineapple Thief It Leads To This Out Friday
English prog art rock band The Pineapple Thief release their 15th album on Friday, February 9, 2024. It Leads To This is songwriter, vocalist, and multi-instrumentalist Bruce Soord’s cautionary account of the world we are leaving behind for our kids.
Soord self-reflects on the title track, “What I’m writing about, what I’m criticising, is me, and that’s probably why I could sing it. It really was written from the heart.”
“As much as I go on about the polarised state of the world, l do think it’s a minority creating this toxic environment that a lot of us have to live in,” Soord says. “I think most people who I meet are genuinely nice. So there’s a positive message from this. Because it shouldn’t, it doesn’t have to lead to this.”
The Pineapple Thief is Bruce Soord, Gavin Harrison (King Crimson, Porcupine Tree) on drums, bassist/backing vocalist Jon Sykes, and keyboardist Steve Kitch.
