MARILLION Premier Official Music Video For “Living In F E A R”
September 28, 2017, a year ago
October 13th 2017 will see prog rock giants Marillion playing the Royal Albert Hall for the very first time, performing their magnificent Top 5 chart album, F*** Everyone And Run (F E A R), but also celebrating a very special live version of their epic “Living In F E A R” - a powerful song about peace and reflection, a song with a more generalized look at fear that seems to characterize our times, and particularly the response it creates. An official video for the track can be found below.
“Living in F E A R strangely is a misleading title because that’s a song about ceasing to live in fear,” says singer Steve Hogarth. “It’s a kind of a hippie song about how you can choose to melt your guns as a show of strength, how you can choose to leave your doors unlocked as a show of strength and not weakness. And that we are mirrors: if you go around defensively and that becomes your outlook, you bring on that in the rest of the world. Whereas if you go around with love and the walls are down, people take the walls down, too.”
“Living In F E A R” will be released October 6th and comes in a limited CD Digipak as well as in a limited and numbered 12” vinyl edition, carrying three additional unreleased live songs: The fifth section of “The Leavers”, called “One Tonight”, a song about leaving lives and families behind to go on tour and being in a new country - a very personal song for Marillion. The epic “Neverland”, originally from Marbles, and “Dry Land”, originally from Holidays In Eden, complete this EP: two live versions released for the first time outside of the band's own Racket Records catalogue, serving a precursor of a strictly limited reissue series of the band's jewels, so far only sold or shared to through their wonderful web shop, starting January 2018.
Often referred to as the leaders of the neo-progressive movement of the early 80s, Marillion is way more than that. 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. As the first of their peers, Marillion have started to embrace the potential of the internet for both their commercial approach and to interact with their audience. Throughout their over 35 years career and over 15 million records sold they have become the most outstanding representatives of their genre. With their latest studio album F*** Everyone And Run (F E A R), their second released by earMUSIC and the band’s highest charting album across the globe since Steve Hogarth joined in 1989, Marillion have shown that they are as brilliant and vital as ever.
