The Pineapple Thief

The Pineapple Thief, a progressive rock band from Somerset, United Kingdom, began as the musical vision of BruceSoord who started the band as an outlet for his music back in 1999. Bruce released the debut Abducting The Unicorn onCyclops records - this created enough interest to convince Bruce that perhaps The Pineapple Thief was here to stay, quicklyestablishing a small but fanatical fan base. Bolstered by critical plaudits and support from fans, Bruce returned to the DiningRoom studios to work on the second, and to many, the breakthrough Pineapple Thief album 137. ...read more

The Pineapple Thief, a progressive rock band from Somerset, United Kingdom, began as the musical vision of BruceSoord who started the band as an outlet for his music back in 1999. Bruce released the debut Abducting The Unicorn onCyclops records - this created enough interest to convince Bruce that perhaps The Pineapple Thief was here to stay, quicklyestablishing a small but fanatical fan base. Bolstered by critical plaudits and support from fans, Bruce returned to the DiningRoom studios to work on the second, and to many, the breakthrough Pineapple Thief album 137.

During this time, several major labels started to take an interest, causing a delay in the release which arrived over two yearsafter the debut. However it was probably the third album, Variations on a Dream that gave the band the boost theyneeded, reaching out to yet more people all over the world, by which point The Pineapple Thief were consistently the topsellers on the Cyclops label.

After this release in the spring of 2002 Bruce decided to form a band to take his music to the fans. The band consisted of hisclose musical friends - former university band mate Jon Sykes on bass, Wayne Higgins on guitars, Matt O’Leary on keyboardsand Keith Harrison on drums. Matt has since left but Steve Kitch (who co-produced and mixed 10 Stories Down) hassince joined to play the keyboards on stage. Wayne Higgins also decided to leave for personal reasons in early 2008, but hasnot been replaced, the band deciding to continue as a four-piece.

Three albums followed, 10 Stories Down (2005), Little Man (2006), and What We Have Sown (2007),whichwas to prove to be the last album released via Cyclops. After signing to Kscope records, the band has released 3 albums,2008's Tightly Unwound, 2010's Someone Here is Missing and 2014's Magnolia, « hide
