Pineapple Thief, The
Pineapple Thief - Hold Our Fire
Capitalizing on the release of their critically acclaimed 2018 studio album ‘Dissolution’, British art-rock band The Pineapple Thief launched a 16-date European headline tour in September showcasing a supreme execution of their new material co-written by Bruce Soord and Gavin Harrison, culminating at their biggest ever show at a packed London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
The new material establishes The Pineapple Thief’s intent to elevate themselves to new heights, with a desire to develop their songwriting and technical capabilities, and with artwork created by iconic design agency Stylorouge, whose previous work includes Pink Floyd, David Bowie, Blur and British film Trainspotting. The album concept tells of the often-dark consequences of living in a society in which everything is played out on a public stage, a theme paralleled in the cover art, which was created by ‘glitching’ the original photographs.
‘Hold Our Fire’ comes as a single 180gm heavyweight LP, and features eight concert performances of ‘Dissolution’ tracks, including the singles “Far Below”, “Try As I Might”, “Threatening War” and “Uncovering Your Tracks”, as well as “3000 Days” from 2010 studio album ‘Someone Here is Missing’ with extra guitars from George Marios.
