New Marillion Album Coming Out

Originally uploaded by solaphobe.

It doesn’t seem so long, but it’s been over two years since we heard the last full-length CD from Marillion (Marbles). Recently the lads held their traditional Marillion Weekend in the UK (one day I hope I can attend one).

There’s more exciting news for Marillion fans around the corner. April 24, the band’s new album, titled Somewhere Else will be released in the US.

In the meantime, you can listen to clips from the album on the band’s My Space page. The bits you can enjoy there sound pretty promising, much simpler than their Marbles material, but good.

Vote for for People's Choice Awards

Marillion has long been one of my favorite bands. Here’s a way to do something in return for them…

Yes ladies and gentlemen, it’s that time of year again – the annual Digital Music Awards. Over the past several years, Marillion Online has been voted into the People’s Choice Award top 10, but has yet to reach the number 1 spot.
