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.

So the download of the first new track, Be Hard On Yourself, is now available for anyone who pre-ordered (I did not, so I can't say what it's like, but generally seeing positive reactions from the Marrillion online-o-sphere). Apparently just have to go to the pre-order site and there should be a link in your account to download it.

Thanks for the heads up, just downloaded the new song (which is split into 3 parts). At 9:27 long, it's a hefty piece and has a lot of signature modern Marillion elements bit as a whole it caught me off guard a bit. Definitely an exciting song and it has me curious/ready for the whole album, whenever it'll come out.

I believe the track is only available for download for those who preorder through the band's website.

Yeah, the shipping alone made pre-ordering in the US a non-starter. Just the CD alone was $10.00 shipping, and you only got your name in the credits for the big expensive bundles. I am curious about this song, but It's also a good chunk of the album, so maybe I'll just wait.

Not loving that they've split an epic into multiple tracks again. Are the parts more or less distinct pieces that you might want to listen to on their own at least?

The cynical part of me figures the song will make its way to YouTube eventually. It's not like I'm not going to buy the album, so I may check it out whenever it gets there.

I just don't do CDs anymore, don't even have a player plugged in. All my listening is streaming, so if it isn't signed or something, I'll just support the band through merch and wait for the stream of it. I have heard good things across the board about the new track though.

Saw where Lucy mentioned on Facebook that it is getting released to streaming services sometime in November. I think 11/18 but not sure if that's official.

Looking back at my email from Sept 8 of my order, I did indeed order the CD/DVD Deluxe (Signed) with Personalization (name included in credits). If your order email doesn't list it as Deluxe or show your Personalization option, you didn't order it with that option (which did cost more of course).

The track list includes one new track that wasnít mentioned before. I think I heard somewhere there might be an additional track. I wonder if they just snipped a section from one of the longer songs or if it was some additional music they had that they decided to include during mixing.

Kind of glad this is in March so it wonít come out too close to Big Big Trainís new album.
