THE PINEAPPLE THIEF - 3000 DAYS-RELEASE DATE – SEPTEMBER 29, 2009

THE PINEAPPLE THIEF - 3000 DAYS
RELEASE DATE – SEPTEMBER 29, 2009
2CD SET - THE BEST OF THE PINEAPPLE THIEF 1999 – 2008
RE-MASTERED EDITION – COMPILED BY BRUCE SOORD – INCLUDING ALTERNATIVE VERSIONS & MIXES

In 1999 Bruce Soord decided to venture into his studio to try something alone. 3000 days, a full band and seven albums later, this is what you get….

Last year The Pineapple Thief launched the Kscope label with the critically acclaimed album, Tightly Unwound.

While the album was many people’s introduction to the band they have actually spent the past ten years quietly building up a dedicated fan base across the globe, selling over 25,000 records and nurturing their ‘bittersweet’ progressive sound.

Initially a solo outlet for Bruce’s music the first album, Abducting, was released on Cyclops Records in May 1999. The critical plaudits and small but fanatical fan base that grew around the release was enough to convince Bruce that perhaps TPT was here to stay and he returned to the Dining Room studios to work on the second TPT album, 137.

Following the reaction to its release in the spring of 2002 and the growing demand from fans for live shows, Bruce felt the need to expand TPT to a full band. The band consisted of his close musical friends - former university band mate Jon Sykes on bass, Wayne Higgins on guitars, Matt O’Leary on keyboards and Keith Harrison on drums. Wayne and Matt have since left but Steve Kitch (who co-produced and mixed the albums since 10 Stories Down) has joined to replace Matt and play the keyboards.

The third album, Variations On A Dream (2004) gave TPT a further boost, reaching out to yet more people all over the world. Three albums followed, 10 Stories Down (2005), Little Man (2006), and What We Have Sown (2007), which was to prove to be the last album released via Cyclops before the band signed to Kscope and released Tightly Unwound.


3000 Days is a collection of songs from their ten year history so far, lovingly re-mixed and re-mastered by Bruce Soord and Steve Kitch at the recently refurbished studio at TPT HQ, somewhere in deepest and darkest Somerset.

The Pineapple Thief will be on tour in Europe throughout 2009 as well as writing and recording their new studio album, currently scheduled for early 2010.
