The album is the follow up to Tightly Unwound, the critically acclaimed album which launched the Kscope label In April 2008. Bruce Soord, the band’s frontman has described it as ‘a record of dark edges, full of love and regret, my life in the last eighteen months pretty much.’ The nine tracks mark another step forward in the bands progression, as Bruce’s songwriting continues to evolve and the band grow ever tighter.
Someone Here is Missing features artwork created by the legendary designer Storm Thorgerson, famous for creating some of the most recognisable artwork of the last 30 years including albums by Pink Floyd (Dark Side Of The Moon, Division Bell, Pulse), Muse, Led Zeppelin, Biffy Clyro and many more.
The artwork for Someone Here is Missing features a man covered in hundreds of post-it notes and to celebrate the art, as well as the post-it note’s 30th birthday, we have set up an online gallery to show off your favourite album covers, as (re)drawn by you. We are asking you to draw your favourite album artwork on a post-it note, scan it and email it to us at this email address so we can add it to the gallery on the mini-site.
