NEW ALBUM FROM PORCUPINE TREE’S GAVIN HARRISON’S PROJECT.
The Man Who Sold Himself is the third album from the collaboration between Porcupine Tree drummer Gavin Harrison and 05Ric, the multi-instrumentalist, singer and extended range bass player. The album will be released on Kscope on February 27th 2012 as a 2 disc set, featuring the album on CD as well as a 5.1 mix on DVD, allowing fans to enjoy the intricate complexities of the album in full surround glory.
Last year Gavin Harrison was voted 'Best Progressive Drummer' 4 years in a row in the Modern Drummer's readers poll, ahead of such luminaries as Neil Peart, Dave Grohl, Phil Collins, Nicko McBrain, Chad Smith, Stewart Copeland and Cozey Powell. He was also recently invited to perform on the David Letterman show as part of his Drum Solo week.
Best known for his work with Porcupine Tree, Gavin has also played extensively with King Crimson as well as providing session drumming for a host of respected artists but his work with 05Ric has allowed him to develop some of the work that he has created outside these projects.
05Ric has developed a fresh, exciting, style of singing and virtuoso playing and a chance meeting between the two has led to one of the most interesting and complex musical collaborations in recent years. The blend of 05Ric’s distinctive style with Gavin’s extraordinary drumming has produced some unique results.
This is the duo's first release since Circles, the 2010 album, which was described by Classic Rock Prog as 'bristling with instrumental technique and firepower... Circles is peppered with a pulsating, muscular funk that pushes through generic barriers to create its own unique space.' The Man Who Sold Himself looks set to push these barriers even further.
