Released 10th April 2012
Burning Shed is pleased to announce the release of love and endings, a document of no-man's powerful performance in front of a sell-out crowd at the Leamington Spa Assembly on October 14th, 2011.
Retaining the intimacy and sophistication of the band's studio work while adding an edgy Rock attack absent from much of its recorded output, the duo of Tim Bowness and Steven Wilson were joined by classical violinist Steve Bingham and regular collaborators Michael Bearpark, Andrew Booker, Stephen Bennett and Pete Morgan.
The material on love and endings is drawn from all eras of no-man's 20 year plus career and includes the previously unreleased song, beaten by love (which dates from the earliest days of the band).
Shot by Australian film-maker Dion Johnson, the concert is available as a cd/dvd presented in a deluxe digi-pack. Due to overwhelming demand, the limited vinyl edition sold out within 48 hours of being announced as a pre-order.
For a full track-listing and details, visit the love and endings micro-site.
