New 2lp Wide-Spine Edition Of ‘Wisdom Of Crowds’, The Partnership Between Bruce Soord And Jonas Renkse.

“An album of exquisite melodies and wildly inventive arrangements... this is
the sound of two supremely talented artists snatching magic from the ether.” - Metal Hammer.

At a time of personal success for each member of the ‘Wisdom of Crowds’ project, Kscope are re-releasing the jaw dropping work of art from The Pineapple Thief’s frontman Bruce Soord and Katatonia’s singer Jonas Renkse. Soord, having recently returned from a sold-out debut US tour, has announced the new Pineapple Thief album ‘Versions Of the Truth’ set for release on September 4th. Jonas Renkse is currently enjoying the success of Katatonia’s latest opus ‘City Burials’. Album chart positions included: #1 in the USA New Artists and #6 in the USA Hard Rock charts, #3 in Sweden’s Hard Rock chart, #6 in German album chart, #3 in Poland, #3 in the UK’s Rock and Metal chart & #2 in the Australian rock chart.

As ‘Wisdom of Crowds’ was originally written with Renkse’s voice in mind, Soord sought out the acclaimed Katatonia vocalist to complete the compositions and release the music to the masses in 2013. Despite the rigorous schedules of The Pineapple Thief and Katatonia, the two musicians were eventually able to connect to record an album that swings between fragile acoustic motifs and pounding rock riffs. The partnership unleashed an unparalleled imaginative force that gives listeners more with every listen - a progressive album for curious fans of either Katatonia or The Pineapple Thief. Kscope release ‘Wisdom of Crowds’ as a wide spine 2LP set.
