MattyTomTom Prog Rock with attitude. They get compared to Porcupine Tree a lot, but Pineapple Thief stands on its own as the new gold standard for the genre. Favorite track: Demons.

gebs If it feels a little uniformly mellow at first, give it time. It's a subtle album that rewards repeated listens thanks to its seductive melodies and Gavin Harrison's work on the marimba. Favorite track: Demons.

mccrow This album gives me a feeling of nostalgia of something I've never had.
Harrison's ghost notes are like irregular heart beats to remind us of time passing.
I just love it. Favorite track: Stop Making Sense.

Logjam82 Have heard the group progress considerably since Mr. Harrison came on board, not to belittle the rest of the immense talent on display, the material is more urgent overall, great songwriting but still willing to weave longer tales. The production is rich and deeply colorful. Plenty of lyrical depth and resonance with current and universal themes. Upwards and onwards as I have come to expect. Favorite track: Our Mire.

You caught me in the black light There was no way out for us I thought it'd be a matter of time But you lost your head I followed you but you were out of sight I did everything I could to get you back into my light It's not how I remember it You sold me out before I had time To fight No it's not how I remember it You cornered me And knocked me out If you follow me then I'll be out of sight I'll never be the one who comes and crawls back in your light It's not how I remember it | It's not how I remember it You took control | You took control And sold me out before I had time | And sold me out before I had time You follow me but I am out of sight | You follow me but I am out of sight I never wanted anyone else to fall into your light | I never wanted anyone else to fall into your light It's not how I remember it. | It's not how I remember it. If I had known what it's all about Someone told me to work it out I live in this frequency A frequency just for me Just scattered voices Not one that I can say Is close enough for me to make it out No words that I can care about This is a world of silence This is a world where you are safe Yeah I am lost in this frequency It's a frequency just for me I hear no voices Not the ones that I betrayed. You follow me but I am out of sight (yeah I'm out of sight) I never wanted anyone else to fall into my light You caught me in the black light There was one way out for you I knocked you out Is that how you remember it?

Break It All 04:21
I don't know what to say to you What version of yourself have you been listening to? You will find your so-called love? You will find your so-called? You don't get to break it all And break the rest with someone else Such a simple act Got hold of you What's the use of looking back? And all that we've been through? You will find your so-called love? You will find your so-called... You don't get to break it all And break the rest with someone else Where did you expect you will find the cure? What version of yourself will die before.. You will find your so-called love? You will find your so-called

Demons 04:33
It was only supposed to be a short term thing But the further we got the deeper we dug in Now I've let it crawl deep under my skin Yeah it was only supposed to be a short term thing Cos I've got demons Yeah you should know You put them in me And I will not let them go Yeah I've got Demons It was only supposed to be a short term thing And just a matter of time before it all caved in Cos I've got demons Yeah you should know You put them in me And I will not let them go Yeah I've got demons Yeah you should know You put them in me And I will not let them go Yeah I've got demons Yeah I've got demons Yeah you should know You put them in me I guess I knew this All along I hurt you Yeah I've got demons It was only supposed to be a short term thing
4.
I guess we'll never make it back from this road We're driving like maniacs With one last corner to go And we had so many chances to ruin what we had The rain comes up and shelters us from this road And all who travelled it Your hands fall and suddenly There's one last corner to go I gave you so many chances to ruin what we had You and I We were always destined to fall As cold as I would be to ruin it all I gave you nothing I gave you up For you and I And so you took your chance to ruin what we had You and I We were always destined to fall As cold as I would be to ruin it all I gave you nothing I gave you up For you and I
5.
Leave Me Be 04:14
So it's all coming down This isn't how it used to be Coming at me Overrun my lines Do what you will with me Come on you said We're coming to get you Why couldn't you leave be? We're coming to get you Whatever is left of me We're coming to get you Why couldn't you leave me be? What you told me was a lie Why would that ever occur to me? You took it all without a blink of an eye Oh this isn't how it used to be Come on and pay We're coming to get you Why couldn't you leave be? We're coming to get you Whatever is left of me We're coming to get you Why couldn't you leave me be? I'm coming to get you You should never have woken me Yeah I'm coming to get you Just you and me Yeah I'm coming to get you I'm coming to get you Why couldn't you leave me be? I'm coming to get you Whatever is left of me I'm coming to get you Why couldn't you leave me be?
6.
So many coming in All of them want to win The missing part of me Begin this worthless fight They don't care who's wrong, who's right There's just one thing they can see So many coming in And all of them want to win The most vulnerable part of me Pushing from pillar to post Work me where it hurts the most I don't know where I want to be You won't ever see me You won't even know What it means to be alone You're coming to see me? You're coming in droves Yeah it's ok to be alone There's too many voices to hear There's too many voices here
7.
Our Mire 07:26
I didn't want to wake up I didn't wake up intending to slide Into our mire I didn't want to wake up I didn't want to wake up now I didn't want to see our ship Going down I have all the time for this Every second more To keep our heads above water That's what we were for Half a second is all you were given for This our final call Is that was I was for? I didn't want to wake up I didn't want to wake up now I didn't want to see our ship Going down When you stumble on It's someone you're looking for To push away the tide That's what we were for When we stumbled on Just what we were looking for To spend our days with you That's what we were for You think I was in on it? You think I ignored the warning signs? All I could see was the glistening of the wake we left behind The first to jump this ship will be the first to stay alive Go down with this ship to stay alive I didn't want to wake up I didn't want to wake up now I didn't want to see our ship Going down Kneeling on this shore Looking down We are face to face Into the ground Wherever you are Wherever you ran aground I know it broke our hearts when our ship went down
8.
Out Of Line 04:00
We were as one moving out Out of line I felt like a child Didn't know how far we should go But it's my key To survive If we won't stop this there won't be a second chance If we don't stop now there won't be a second chance If we don't stop now there won't be a second We drove as one so far out So out of line I felt so alive Couldn't have known how fast we would go We had no chance To survive If we won't stop this there won't be a second chance If we don't stop now there won't be a second chance We had the key to survive If we don't stop now there won't be a second chance If we don't stop now there won't be a second
9.
Oh you You can see me? Oh you You're looking my way? Oh you I heard what you said Yeah you Your truth is of little use They stop They stop making sense to me I need you to make some sense to me now Oh you Can you see me? Is that you? Are you looking my way? Don't run I need to hear what you said Without you This truth is of little use They stop They stop making sense to me I need you To make some sense to me now They stop They stop making sense to me I need you to make some sense to me Oh you make some sense to me Without you This makes no sense to me
10.
The Game 04:45
Over night you said all kinds of things I'd wish I'd never read We were all undone at speed Eroding us And changing what we mean You're taking us all for fools Where're you taking us? There lies nothing left to choose Between an army who have nothing they care to lose And there was me and you all along It can't just be us left here clinging on You're taking us all for fools You're selling us down the river And you know where it leads We've been here before No it's not a game anymore

THE PINEAPPLE THIEF, THE LEADING LIGHTS OF EUROPE’S EXPERIMENTAL ROCK DOMAIN RELEASE THEIR NEW ALBUM VERSIONS OF THE TRUTH ON SEPTEMBER 4TH ON KSCOPE

Over the last half-decade, The Pineapple Thief - led by musical polymath Bruce Soord and bolstered by the involvement of master drummer Gavin Harrison - has rapidly ascended to the upper echelons of Europe’s Alternative Rock scene.

Versions Of The Truth - out on September 4th through Kscope - is the latest instalment in the band’s deserved (and welcome) rise to success.

The band's anthemic 2018 release Dissolution garnered worldwide acclaim. Earning TPT its highest chart positions to date and the album led to two extensive European headline tours (including a headline show at London's prestigious O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire) and a hugely successful tour of North America.

With the release of its new album, The Pineapple Thief is set to raise its exceptional standards once more, having produced what may be one of the most important albums of 2020.

Versions Of The Truth represents a conceptual progression from Dissolution (a contemplation on our ‘post truth’ world) and lyrically tackles similar themes, but from a more personal perspective. Reflecting on how there can be more than one ‘version of the truth’, the album’s songs revolve around the impact the media can have on our lives and the people we love.

Recording began at Bourne Place (London) and Soord Studios (Yeovil) after the band had completed its US tour (October 2019 to April 2020), with engineering handled by Bruce Soord and Gavin Harrison. The album has been mastered by Steve Kitch.
