I’ll have a review of Magnolia soon, but let me state it’s the best TPT album since WHAT WE HAVE SOWN.
Thanks, Brian Rocha!
THE PINEAPPLE THIEF LAUNCHES “MAGNOLIA” ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE VIDEO
10th album “Magnolia” out now on Kscope
ENGLAND -U.K. rock troupe, The Pineapple Thief, has launched a clip of the beautiful title track from its new album Magnolia being performed acoustically by frontman Bruce Soord. Check out the video on the band’s Kscope page at:http://www.kscopemusic.com/artists/thepineapplethief or directly on Vimeo at:https://vimeo.com/110921949.
“Here’s a stripped back acoustic version of ‘Magnolia’ I performed in my studio recently,” commented Soord. “All the songs on Magnolia began their life this way, on acoustic guitar and vocal, so it was really nice to go back and play this song again, in the form as it was when it was born.”
Magnolia, which released last September on Kscope, can be purchased on iTunes at:https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/magnolia-deluxe-version/id905388556, Amazon.com at:http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00LVH0SW6/ref=dm_ws_ps_cdp?ie=UTF8&s=music or through the Kscope web-store at:https://www.burningshed.com/store/kscope/.

“‘Magnolia’ is a gorgeous album – immaculately produced, and assembled with real love and imagination” – Classic Rock Magazine (U.K.)
“This is a fearless, consistently lovely and beautifully executed album that’s sure to be cherished” – Prog Magazine (U.K.) – Lead album review
“‘Magnolia’ proves that The Pineapple Thief is still at the top of its game” –RebelNoise.com
Formed in 1999 by founder and chief songwriter Bruce Soord as an experimental bedroom project, The Pineapple Thief has since continued to evolve and refine its sound. The group is seen by many as one of the most interesting and innovative rock bands the U.K. has produced in recent years. Previous albums like Someone Here Is Missing (2010) and All The Wars (2012) have made The Pineapple Thief’s reputation and fan base stronger, resulting in interest from a wider audience.
With a new, expanding sound, Magnolia has all the potential to bring The Pineapple Thief to the masses. This, the band’s 10th record, could not only be a milestone, but also a mainstream breakthrough for the band. With Magnolia, The Pineapple Thief has created 12 musical gems that defy all classifications – anthemic, catchy, intense, honest and straight from the heart.
The band will head out on a European tour later this month in support.
