WITH two albums and 50,000 sales behind them, The Pineapple Thief are standing on the brink of a big-time breakthrough.

The Somerset outfit, who originate from Yeovil, are heading to Bristol on as part of a national tour ahead of their third album release.

Their date at The Fleece on September 17 comes hot on the heels of a series of triumphant festival slots, and will see the rockers showcasing music from their third studio effort.

All The Wars was recorded at Peter Gabriel’s Real World studio, and Pineapple Thief frontman Bruce Soord says the record displays the band’s continued evolution.

Tickets cost £12.50 in advance, and are available from
