DID YOU KNOW?

Porcupine Tree are a Grammy-nominated progressive rock band formed in Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire, England by Steven Wilson, and the most popular of his multiple side projects. The band's music is a combination of rock, psychedelia, and metal. Wilson once commented: "I like so many different types of things, and they all go into the melting pot, if you like, that produces the music of Porcupine Tree."[1]

During the nineties the band focused on psychedelic music although they incorporated a wide variety of styles from electronic music, mostly from trance and krautrock due to Steven Wilson and Richard Barbieri's liking for 1970s bands such as Tangerine Dream, Neu! and Can.[2] Since the release of Lightbulb Sun (2000), the band started tuning their guitars down for some tracks and they began to gradually incorporate a more metal sound. Their most recent full-length studio album, Fear of a Blank Planet, released in April, 2007, contains some of the heaviest Porcupine Tree music ever.

For live shows, Porcupine Tree uses a screen that displays a different projection for each song. This visual element was introduced during the In Absentia tour, when the band started to work with Danish photographer and filmmaker Lasse Hoile, and became a trademark for Porcupine Tree's live performances.

Despite being signed to Roadrunner and Atlantic, the band has its own record label, Transmission which has been used to launch some independent releases and special limited editions of their albums. Porcupine Tree has its official online store on Burning Shed (also home for OSI, Chroma Key and Roger Eno among others).

In a poll celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the Dutch Progressive Rock Page, Porcupine Tree was the most voted band for "Best Albums of the Decade" and "Best Tracks of the Decade" (1997 - 2006).[3]
