Just six songs, so expecting some more longer songs like on FEAR. Kind of hope they donít split them up again like they did for that (technically FEAR was just 5/6 songs depending on how you categorize Tomorrowís New Country).

Iím a little surprised they are going the epic route since they have talked a lot about how much more up tempo or energetic this album is. Was kind of expecting more shorter songs, but I suppose we donít know which ones might be epic and which arenít.

Also, theyíve been saying for about a month now that they are done recording and it is just needing to be mixed. Iím almost certain that is an old quote in the article since the hope was to be done mixing by the end of September so they could deliver it for manufacture by the end of the month. Theyíve already confirmed a six month wait time for production, so if they donít get it done this month, it wonít be out before April 2022 at the earliest.

Has it been said how long the album will be? I assume it'll be a single disc based on the pre-orders, but it could be 45 minutes or it could be 75 minutes. Either way, I suspect at least one "epic-length" tune among those six, in the 15-20 minute range.

Not that I can recall off the top of my head, though I believe they confirmed it was a single disc. I would be somewhat surprised if itís a shorter length like 45 minutes, but you never know!

So Marillion, which is it?  Don't Hurt Yourself or Be Hard on Yourself?  Can you be hard on yourself without hurting yourself?  I hope they can answer that question!

So Marillion launched a crowdfunding campaign this morning to insure their European tour since no insurers will do it. Managed to get Forbes to write about it:

Saw that. Have mixed feelings about it. But I totally get it. I mean Metallica right now is suing their insurers because they don't want to cover the South American tour that was cancelled. So there are some problems with insurers not wanting to insure rock bands right now.

Just judging from feedback on Facebook and the Marillion forum, they seem to be getting a lot of support. I was worried when I saw it that it may be asking too much on the heels of the pre-order campaign. I think it helps to have an older fan base with disposable income. I personally decided against paying for any of the expensive pre-order items, and Iím not planning to help fund this either, but Iím glad they will have some financial security going into the tour as I certainly donít want to see them bankrupted if something goes wrong on the tour.

Hope it works out for them , but I don't want to be a part of that.

I get it. Tours are not being insured and that puts bands and crews in a rough spot. I'd have been happy to pay for a live release or an album of covers or jams or something.

Fish has decided to risk it by going on tour with no insurance and record the first gig which he would later release if gigs if they have to cancel any gigs.

Makes you begin to wonder if bands could unite and form their own group insurance.
