The Incident - omslag och bakgrund

Jag forstätter att lägga in lite information om Porcupine Trees kommande skiva "The Incident". Dels så har omslagsbilden släppts (klicka på bilden för större variant) och så har Roadrunner lagt ut hur Steven Wilson fick idén till konceptet. Han säger följande:

There was a sign saying ‘POLICE – INCIDENT’ and everyone was slowing down to rubber neck to see what had happened. Afterwards, it struck me that ‘incident’ is a very detached word for something so destructive and traumatic for the people involved. And then I had the sensation that the spirit of someone that had died in the accident entered into my car and was sitting next to me.
The irony of such a cold expression for such seismic events appealed to me, and I began to pick out other ‘incidents’ reported in the media and news. I wrote about the evacuation of teenage girls from a religious cult in Texas, a family terrorizing its neighbors, a body found floating in a river by some people on a fishing trip, and more. Each song is written in the first person and tries to humanize the detached media reportage.

Djupt värre, väldigt wilsonskt. 22 september släpps den.
