Blackfield's "Welcome to my DNA" Now Available, New Video + Tour Dates

[press release] Welcome To My DNA, the new album from Blackfield is now in stores and available to download (links below). Blackfield is the acclaimed collaboration between Steven Wilson (Porcupine Tree) and Israeli artist Aviv Geffen. Formed after a meeting in 2000, the partnership blossomed into a cross-cultural collaboration that has already spawned two albums (2004’s Blackfield and 2007’s Blackfield II) and led Classic Rock magazine to recently state that 'when they come together they create something quite magical' before going on to describe the new album as 'a thing of melancholic beauty'.

The promo video for the lead single "Waving," is now streaming on the album mini-site (or below). The single will be available to download from April 11th to coincide with the band's European tour which kicks off on April 6th in the UK before visiting Holland, Germany, Poland, Switzerland, Italy, Belgium and France followed by an American tour in May and June.

The digi-book and vinyl editions of the album are all also available to order on the Welcome To My DNA mini-site. The mini-site features album info, downloads and more along with the chance to download a free MP3 of the album’s opening track "Glass House" when signing up to the mailing list.
