Welcome Back: Blackfield – Israeli star Aviv Geffen reunites with Steven Wilson

Steven Wilson leaves his prog and production duties to join Aviv Geffen once again for Blackfield’s fifth

Blackfield is the long-standing collaboration between prog rock’s blue-eyed boy Steven Wilson and Israeli musician and iconoclast Aviv Geffen. Since their 2004 debut they’ve released four acclaimed albums and built up a strong following. Wilson had all but left the project to focus on his blossoming solo career, but he’s now back in the fold for Blackfield V. We talk to principal songwriter Geffen about the group, politics and his role as a judge on Israel’s version of The Voice

When Steven’s solo career took off, he took a step back from Blackfield. Some of us thought it was the end, but here’s Blackfield V

Yes, and we both think it’s our best work so far. It’s got all the angles that made Blackfield so nice the first time. I started work as usual, writing all the songs, he heard Family Man and How Was Your Ride? and really liked them, so he became more and more involved.
