Follow-up to 2017's To The Bone

Steven Wilson takes on Internet influence over society

Groundbreaking musician/songwriter/producer Steven Wilson presents his new studio album The Future Bites on June 12, 2020. Co-produced by Wilson with David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything), The Future Bites sees Wilson exploring contemporary addiction and the lasting effect of technology on our daily lives. The album marks his most inventive and far-reaching musical construction to date, spanning soaring acoustics, lush electronica, relentless bass-driven grooves, murky funk, and so much more, all linked through powerfully focused songcraft.

Wilson's new album The Future Bites is an exploration of how the human brain has evolved in the Internet era. As well as being Wilson's phenomenal sixth album, The Future Bites is also an online portal to a world of high concept design custom built for the ultra-modern consumer.

Where 2017's To The Bone confronted the emerging global issues of post truth and fake news, The Future Bites places the listener in a world of 21st century addictions. It's a place where on-going, very public experiments constantly take place into the affects of nascent technology on our lives. From out of control retail therapy, manipulative social media and the loss of individuality, The Future Bites is less a bleak vision of an approaching dystopia, more a curious reading of the here and now.

Musically, The Future Bites gleams. Featuring gorgeous electronic sounds warped by human intervention ("King Ghost"), soaring acoustics that head straight upwards into the stratosphere ("12 Things I Forgot"), relentless bass-driven Motorik grooves ("Follower") and swampish, murky funk ("Eminent Sleaze"), it is Steven's most consistently brilliant work to date. The album was recorded in London and co-produced by David Kosten (Bat For Lashes, Everything Everything) and Steven Wilson.
