"Hand. Cannot. Erase. Is an album rooted in sonic and spiritual modernity an inventive blend of bleak and brooding industrial soundscapes" ***** The Guardian "Probably the most successful British artist you've never heard of" The Telegraph

Steven Wilson, four-time Grammy nominee, multi-instrumentalist, producer, and founder member of Porcupine Tree, released his critically acclaimed fourth solo album 'Hand.Cannot.Erase.' in 2015. In 2017 he shot back into the charts with his fifth solo album 'To the Bone' at #3 in the UK and #2 in Germany, which built on the success of 'Hand.Cannot.Erase.', which reached #13 in the UK and #3 in Germany.

As well as a good reception from fans, 'Hand.Cannot.Erase.' was well supported in the press, with the Financial Times (UK) calling the album "richly textured and forceful... and tender treatments of the theme of loss", Classic Rock (UK) claiming it to be "A tour de force of experimental music making... 8/10" and Metal Hammer (DE) described it as "another masterstroke... 6/7", as well as receiving five stars from Record Collector and four from Q Magazine.

'Hand.Cannot.Erase.' was recorded at London's illustrious Air Studios, Steven reunited Guthrie Govan (guitar), Adam Holzman (keyboards), Theo Travis (flute / sax), Nick Beggs (bass / stick), and Marco Minneman (drums), the spectacular band responsible for 'The Raven...' album and world tour.
