If you would like to join us at a secret location somewhere in the north-east of England (details will be sent by email when your request to attend is confirmed), Please send an email to party@dxps.com with a short note about yourself and why you are the life and soul of the party etc. and we will be in touch. Be one of the first to hear the entire “King of Number 33” album, buy it and get it signed by the whole band and wake up with your own DeeExpus hangover on Sunday. If you would like to hear a sample of the album head over to http://www.marillion.com/shop/albums/king.htm.

We haven't been slacking here at the studio either - we have loads of new
merchandise on offer for Christmas, including hats, scarves, new waterproof
jackets, polo shirts, t-shirts and mugs.

The Friday night show from our convention in Holland, entitled 'Holidays in Zelande' is now in and shipping out across the world as we speak. This DVD features the whole of the Holidays in Eden album plus all the encores. We recently held a cinema screening of the DVD to a few fans from our UK fanclub and they gave it a resounding thumbs up. So order yours now:

Thanks again from the band to all of you in North America for

have been sold already!  Limited Edition tour t-shirt to commemorate the
