Sounds | Marillion - Reprogram The Gene (Live)

Op een (grote, jaja!) schare diehard fans na, weet zo goed als niemand dat deze band nog bestaat, laat staan degelijke zalen met gemak uitverkoopt én dan nog eens erg boeiende en druk bezochte weekends organiseert in diverse landen.

Live staan ze er nog steeds als een wolkenkrabber, niet in het minst met dank aan de uitstekende stem én (wel eens over-the-top) performance van frontman Steve Hogarth. Compleet andere koek dan wat hun ex-frontman uit lang vervlogen tijden probeert. Anyway, dit nummer van hun laatste album AHBID laat een minder genuanceerde en ruwere Hogarth horen en is zeker niet hun beste song, wel vintage Marillion, onnavolgbaar.

An Hour Before It's Dark: Live in Port Zélande 2023 verschijnt op 21 juni 2024 via earMUSIC / V2 Records


Since 2002, Marillion has welcomed their dedicated fans to very special weekends every two years: the Marillion weekend. On three consecutive nights, Marillion performs different shows with different setlists – each night, a full album is played from start to finish, including fan favourites and rarities. Fans travel from all over the world to be part of these truly amazing nights. 

From Friday, March 17th, to Sunday, March 19th, 2023, the Marillion weekend took place at Center Parcs, Port Zélande, The Netherlands. 

On Saturday night, Marillion performed their latest album “An Hour Before It’s Dark” in its entirety. Their impressive live shows, with stunning projections and laser effects, add to Marillion’s reputation as being one of the leading musicians of today. 

“An Hour Before It’s Dark: Live in Port Zélande 2023” will be released physically on 2CD Digipak, Blu-ray Digipak , DVD Digipak and, for the first time, 3LP Heavyweight Vinyl

Founded in 1979, British rock band Marillion have, over the course of 20 studio albums, become one of the most commercially successful progressive rock bands of the 1980s and are still one of the most outstanding representatives of their genre. Marillion embraced the potential of the internet for both their commercial approach and to interact with their audience, long before most of their peers. They are purveyors of soulful, powerful, and deeply-moving music, with a long-standing reputation of impressive live shows and an imposing, faithful and loyal global fan base.
