Insurgentes, the debut solo album from Steven Wilson, is released in the UK on March 9th and during the week of release Steven will be visiting key independent record shops in London, Cheltenham, Cardiff and Bristol to sign copies of the album. Details of exactly where and when are below.

A vinyl edition of the album is now available to pre-order from the Kscope store. The vinyl edition will be limited to 2000 copies and will come on double heavyweight (180g) vinyl in a gatefold sleeve. This edition shall only be available from this site. It also features 4 bonus tracks not available on the CD/DVD edition.

Harmony Korine, the first single to be taken from the album, is now available to pre-order from the Kscope store. The single is available on limited edition coloured vinyl (black, white or blood red – 1000 copies of each).

Lasse Hoile, the acclaimed director and long-time collaborator with Steven, has made a promo video for the single. You can check it out on the Insurgentes mini-site.

The mini-site also features clips taken from the forthcoming Insurgentes documentary. In the film Steven tests various ways to destroy an iPod and every week leading up to the release of the album snippets of the film shall be posted on the site, showing a different method of destruction ranging from hammers to shotguns to woodchippers.

We have received a large number of entries for the remix competition that is running on the website but some people have contacting us to ask if we can extend the deadline for entries so we have decided to move it back to March 27th.
