Another £5000 For Videos
A quick recap first: Marillion are giving away a brand new song AND £5000 for YOUR video interpretation of it at www.whateveriswrongwithyou.com
But we've now decided to sweeten the prize a bit.
In addition to the £5000 prize for most views, the band will also be choosing their favourite video for ANOTHER spot prize of £5000!
The best bit? If your video is the most-viewed AND the band's favourite, you could win a WHOPPING £10,000! (Yes, you read that correctly - Ten Thousand British Pounds!)
So get your cameras out, start filming, and most importantly head over to www.whateveriswrongwithyou.com to get the song and read all the very important Terms and Conditions (and please pay special attention to copyright restrictions: videos using copyrighted images will immediately be disqualified, and could even land you in some legal hot water with the copyright owners!)
More news about the album from the band very soon...
OUT TODAY: Naked in the Chapel
Hello eWebbers
At last! The long-anticipated DVD of my Union Chapel h Natural show in September last year. It was a magical night, a great vibe and I think this captures it beautifully! It sounds great (I mixed it myself) and - all in all - it's a good-humoured romp! To relive the full horror of my life, there's bonus material of some classic diary monologues too. If you were there (at the gig, I mean), you can relive the experience. If you weren't and you'd like to hear some stripped-bare, intimate performances of my favourite songs, then this is for you.
We have rush-manufactured PAL format versions with standard packaging in time for my current European dates, also now available from www.marillion.com/shop (NTSC format and special packaging are already under manufacture and will be available soon)
C'mon - get Naked now!
The Wishing Tree Updates
Well things are at last moving forward again with the Wishing Tree album.  I finally feel like we might finish this recording before CD's becomes obsolete! It's always a juggling act finding the time to work on this project amongst all my other commitments but I am hoping to finish the album before the beginning of the Marillion tour in November.
If you'd like to be kept informed on how things are progressing with the album and  to hear news of any possible special editions or future live appearances of the Wishing Tree then please join the mailing list I've set up on www.reverbnation.com/thewishingtree
(And, if anybody's interested, you could put the Wishing Tree ReverbNation Tune Widget on your website/MySpace/Facebook page so other people can listen to and discover the Wishing Tree!)
