Tilt, one of the best new, Progressive Rock bands out of the UK released their masterpiece, entitled Hinterland on the 30th of June this year to raving reviews including one of our own that can be found here: MN TILT “Hinterland” Review.
We have since kept them on our radar to make sure no news gets past us. If you have not already bought this sensational piece of musical virtuosity, TILT has just announced their plan to produce Hinterland on a double gate-fold, 180g vinyl album as part of a pledge campaign that includes a variety of exclusive packages including shirts, CDs, handwritten lyric sheets and signed postcards which all include an instant, digital download to tide you over until the mid-February, 2017 ship date. If TILT reaches their target by December 12th, you will be charged your pledge amount; if not, no charges will be made unless the pledge is made via PayPal, in which case the pledge will be refunded immediately. More information and package details can be found at: TILT Pledge Music. Bassist Steve Vantsis states, “It’s been a great ride so far with the album and we’ve had a fantastic response from press and fans alike. The vinyl release is another red letter day for us as far as I’m concerned. As an old school rocker I can’t wait to see the album in it’s full gatefolded glory!”.
In addition to their pledge campaign, TILT has also just released the HD edit of their video for “Against the Rain” off of Hinterland which features Tara Nowy, the daughter of Fish who reprises her mother’s role from the Marillion video for “Kayleigh”. Both can be viewed below. TILT is apparently incapable of anything less than perfect and continues to be one of my favorite bands. I have flat worn out my copy of Hinterland. Can’t wait to see what lies around the next corner for TILT! Stay tuned…
