After more than three decades in the music industry, rock band Marillion have no intentions of hanging up their instruments.

Formed in Buckinghamshire in 1979, the quintet have had a number of member changes including their former front man Fish in 1988.

Now fronted by Steve “h” Hogarth, Marillion have achieved 12 Top 40 hits singles in the UK since his inclusion, and have been ranked 38th in Classic Rock’s “50 Best Live Acts of All Time” in 2008.

Following the release of 1999’s ‘’ the band launched their own record label (the aptly-named Intact imprint) therefore freeing themselves up to produce some of the finest music of their career.

The web became their stage thanks to their pioneering Internet-based rock business model which has allowed them to develop a unique and intimate relationship with their fans.

From sponsoring entire tours of the USA to funding the recording of recent albums, Marillion’s global fan-base is unique in its affection and dedication.

This year the band will continue to write and record new material for their 17th studio album.

In addition they will be performing a string of gigs in the UK, Europe, North and South America including HMV Forum in Kentish Town on September 16.
