More information: The band's anthemic 2018 release Dissolution garnered worldwide acclaim. Earning The Pineapple Thief its highest chart positions to date and the album led to two extensive European headline tours (including a headline show at London's prestigious O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire) and a hugely successful tour of North America.
With the release of its new album, The Pineapple Thief is set to raise its exceptional standards once more, having produced what may be one of the most important albums of 2020.
Versions Of The Truth represents a conceptual progression from Dissolution (a contemplation on our ‘post truth’ world) and lyrically tackles similar themes, but from a more personal perspective. Reflecting on how there can be more than one ‘version of the truth’, the album’s songs revolve around the impact the media can have on our lives and the people we love.
Recording began at Bourne Place (London) and Soord Studios (Yeovil) after the band had completed its US tour (October 2019 to April 2020), with engineering handled by Bruce Soord and Gavin Harrison. The album has been mastered by Steve Kitch.
Blu-Ray edition featuring the album, bonus album session track The Swell, plus 7 alternative mixes in a 24/96 DTS-HD MA 5.1 surround sound mix and 24/96 hi-res stereo audio. Also includes the Demons music video.
'The alternative mixes are very different to what people might expect. I told Gavin that I didn't want to do 'acoustic reworkings' like I usually do, so Gavin went away and well... You'll hear it!' - Bruce Soord, June 2020
