While the band are beavering away in the studio, we thought it would be a good time to let you know about some of our upcoming plans for new merch.
Firstly, we are very pleased to announce that we have teamed up with the crazy creative geniuses at Fantoons (responsible for the Rush - A Farewell To Kings graphic novel and the Frank Zappa Colouring book amongst other titles) to produce a Marillion Colouring Book!
This fully approved 72 page book features original art, packed with humour and references that all Marillion fans will recognize and we're sure it will provide hours of fun.
The book is now available on pre-order and we expect it to despatch around the 27th July.
Additionally, the first 1000 copies of the book will come with a postcard featuring a new design not used in the book.
Even more additionally, we have 10 postcards that have been coloured in and signed by a member of the band (2 per band member). These will be randomly placed in the orders - think of it as a bit like Charlie Wonka's Golden Ticket but without the chocolate.
Secondly, we will also be announcing some new T-shirts, hoodies and summer themed merchandise (for camping and picnics etc.), so keep an eye on the Racket store over the next few weeks.
Finally, we can't go without wishing a happy birthday to h from all of us!
