*A vinyl edition of Signify by Porcupine Tree is now available to pre-order from the Kscope store.
Signify, released in 1996, was the first complete album recorded by PT as a full band and is regarded by the band (and many fans) as one of their finest works and established the band as a highly respected force in the emerging musical underground.
This double vinyl edition of the album is pressed on heavyweight (180gm) vinyl in a gatefold sleeve with printed inner sleeves.
