The Pineapple Thief
The Pineapple Thief will be heading out on an eagerly anticipated tour of North America in November 2019.
The band, now complete with full-time drummer Gavin Harrison (King Crimson, Porcupine Tree) will be heading to the USA, Mexico and Canada for the first time ever. Frontman Bruce Soord says: “People have been clamouring for us to bring our show to North America since I can remember. We’ve completed 4 tours of Europe with this lineup with Gavin. And now we are finally able to bring it over the pond. I for one cannot wait!”
The band’s 2016 album, Your Wilderness produced 4m+ album streams, a #7 in the UK Independent Charts and two extensive headline European tours culminating at London’s Islington Assembly Hall where the concert was recorded for the live release Where We Stood. Their recently released album Dissolution has seen the band propelled to even greater heights, having gained a #1 position in the UK Rock Charts and #22 in the German national album charts. The band have garnered high praise across the worldwide media as can be seen in the small selection of review quotes below...
Prog Magazine – Album Of The Month - ‘a varied album that pulls together the band’s diverse styles into nine cerebral but very accessible songs’
Kerrang Magazine – ‘Its existence makes the world a slightly better place’
Total Guitar ‘this is essential listening for fans of contemporary prog’
Slam (DE) "Just a beautiful, melancholy record, powerful and full of hymn-like harmonies."
Lust for Life (NL) ‘Dissolution ticks all the boxes’
RockTribune (BE) ‘an album to cherish’

The Receiver is brothers Casey (keyboards, bass, vocals) and Jesse Cooper (drums, vocals) from Columbus, OH. Formed in 2005, the brothers quickly expanded on ideas composed the previous year by Casey for his senior thesis in music composition studies at The Ohio State University. After a few live performances, the band was picked up by New York-based Stunning Models On Display Records. With the label’s support, the band finished the recording of their debut album “Decades” in 2006 and celebrated its release later that year with extensive touring throughout North America. Once home, Casey began the near 2-year writing process for their follow-up album “Length of Arms”. The sophomore effort had its release in late 2009 on Vital Music Records. The band recently signed with Kscope Records (Steven Wilson, Porcupine Tree, Engineers) who released their self-produced third album "All Burn" to critical acclaim in June 2015.
