Editor's note: This little tidbit was buried within the "StarsDie.com" official website for Porcupine Tree. The posting consists of Steven Wilson answering a multitude of questions on PT and his other collaborations. In it was confirmation of a hi-res release for his project with Mikael Akkerfeldt of Opeth...
Question...."Also, I’d be curious to know whether he (Steven Wilson) and Mikael (Akkerfeldt of Opeth) plan to release “Storm Corrosion” in high res on either DVD-Audio or Blu-ray Audio. Thank you..."
Steven Wilson..."Storm Corrosion is coming out on Blu-Ray. The whole album was recorded at 96K so it sounds really good in high res."
The self-titled debut album from the collaboration between OPETH mainman Mikael Åkerfeldt and PORCUPINE TREE's Steven Wilson, which goes under the name of STORM CORROSION, will be available in April 2012 via Roadrunner Records.
Apart from Mikael and Steven, the album includes guest appearances by Gavin Harrison on drums/percussion, Ben Castle on woodwinds, and Dave Stewart on string arrangements.
According to a recent press release, "this album could be seen as the final part in the odd trilogy of records completed by Opeth's new album Heritage and Steven Wilson's brand new solo album, Grace For Drowning."
