    Hi Darren,

    We do, but it's rare...and when I asked yesterday, the store said no :(
    So much for that...

    Not that I've noticed. In fact, our release dates are often AFTER the US dates. And sometimes we don't get stuff released here at all and have to order from the US. :(

    Sometimes we do benefit from the "International Release Date"...which for some reason is different than the US release date. But yeah, usually it's the same or later.
    What's up with that?

    Yes I'm redundant, when required.

    Since kaboom lives in Spain, this is mostly for his benefit, as well as those that did not read the other thread.

    This information I copied straight from the PT webpage:

    The new Porcupine Tree album Deadwing is released on 28th March by Warner Music in Europe, and on 19th April by Lava in the US. Recorded between March-October, the album has been mixed in both stereo and 5.1 versions. Once again the 5.1 mix was done in collaboration with Grammy award winning producer Elliot Scheiner.

    There are guest appearances by Mikael Akerfeldt of Opeth, and Adrian Belew of King Crimson.

    The track listing of the album is:

    1. Deadwing (9.46)
    2. Shallow (4.17)
    3. Lazarus (4.18)
    4. Halo (4.38)
    5. Arriving Somewhere But Not Here (12.02)
    6. Mellotron Scratch (6.57)
    7. Open Car (3.46)
    8. The Start of Something Beautiful (7.39)
    9. Glass Arm Shattering (6.12)

    Despite being included on promotional copies, there may or may not be a hidden track on the final retail copies.

    deadwing.com is a microsite dedicated to the album, with audio, video and other media relating to the album and the film screenplay on which it is based.

    The European tour starts at the end of March, and a US tour will commence in mid May. Please keep an eye on the Porcupine Tree website for regular updates and additions to the band's concert schedule for 2005. Confirmed dates so far:

    On a completely unrelated note -- anyone heard of Riverside? They appear to be mentioned in the same breath as Porcupine Tree, Opeth, and others.

    People at prog archives gravitated towards rating it 4 or 5 stars (out of 5): link

    Sometimes as Imports

    HMV in Toronto often carries some of the more "popular" releases as imports pretty soon after their release, given thier British heritage.
