The Pineapple Thief head back into The Wilderness
We catch up with The Pineapple Thief ahead of their dates to promote Your Wilderness
Formed as a ‘bedroom band’ by vocalist/guitarist Bruce Soord in 1999, the Pineapple Thief now have 11 albums to their name. Soord checks in ahead of the upcoming tour.
In 2012 you spoke to Classic Rock about getting used to TPT belatedly becoming a touring band. Since then progress has been good – on the last tour you headlined venues such as Islington’s Assembly Hall.
Yeah. Our first gig was in a skittle alley, so it’s pretty amazing that we’re still taking those leaps forward.
An early notable catalyst arrived when you noticed a queue gathering for non-existent merch when the band opened for Caravan in 1999.
[Laughing] Yeah. Luckily I had some CDs in the car. That’s when I began to realise that this thing had legs.
