This wait ends on November 20th in North America with the release of Octane Twisted¸ a double disc live set recorded during the tour that supported the band’s most recent albumThe Incident. The album went top 30 in both the UK and USA, and the world tour climaxed with sold out shows at Royal Albert Hall in London and Radio City Music Hall in New York.
The album marked another step forward in the incredible journey of the band from a solo studio project created by Steven Wilson in the late eighties, to a grammy nominated act and one of the world’s most revered live bands. Octane Twisted features the album in its entirety recorded in Chicago.
