Marketing Highlights

Often referred to as the leaders of the neo-progressive movement of the early 80s, Marillion has a reputation of impressive live shows, and an imposing, faithful and loyal global fan base which spans over 35 years and over 15 million records sold.

Since 2002, every 2 years, Marillion welcome their dedicated fans to a very special weekend: the Marillion weekend. During the Marillion weekend in March 2015, at Center Parcs, Port Zelande in The Netherlands, the band recorded the Saturday night performance of one of their most successful albums..Marbles. "Marbles in The Park" immortalized this amazing performance in a DVD/Blu-ray and 2CD Brilliant Box. The DVD bonus material contains "Unconventional" documentary trailer, and the Blu-ray contains the trailer as well as the 12 'Marbles' projection films.

Promotion/Marketing: Online campaign on FB/Google and YouTube as well as select print ads.

Bio

You may not have heard of Marillion but either directly or indirectly, however, you have almost certainly felt the influence of one of the UK music scene’s best-kept secrets.

Today, any musician, artist, writer, or budding entrepreneur can quickly set up a crowdfunding campaign using established specialist companies like PledgeMusic and Kickstarter. Of course, this wasn’t always the case and previously, artists in need of finance and exposure had little choice but to sign their rights away in often exploitative and one-sided business deals. It can be argued that every artist today owes Marillion a debt of gratitude because now there is another way forward.

As far back as the late 1990s, Marillion’s fans sponsored an entire US tour responding to an appeal posted on the fledgling Internet, donating $60,000. In 1997 the band responded creating its own website (the first rock ‘n’ roll website in the UK) and began what was to change the landscape of music. With the support of its passionate fans, Marillion bypassed the conventional music industry, took control of its future, and forged its own path, naming their album marillion.com, banishing the spectre of record company pressure and influence once and for all. Marillion launched its own record label, the aptly named Intact imprint. In so doing, the band freed itself up to produce some of the finest music of its career.

In 2001, Anoraknophobia saw Marillion take the groundbreaking step of asking fans to pre-order an album a full 12 months before release. Anyone doing so would receive a specially packaged CD, which would include their name in the “Thanks” list. An amazing 12,000 people signed up, helping not only to finance the recording, but also to create a budget to launch the album. In doing so, the band invented “Crowdfunding”. This was anything but a one-time event and the band has since funded a number of albums this way. The crowd-funded business model has since been embraced globally to finance music, film and art which otherwise might never have existed.

Marillion’s music is, by its nature, tough to sum-up but perhaps can be approximately described as musically-experimental-yet-emotional Rock, married to thought provoking, soulful lyrics – a powerful and moving cocktail which, for those who “get it”, elicits extraordinary devotion. Its global fan base is impressive and hyper-engaged, with fans often travelling thousands of miles to attend live shows. Little wonder then, that the band was well-placed to harness this faith and trust to provide an alternative way of operating.

After over thirty years, the band shows no signs of slowing down and new generations of young fans are discovering the music for themselves. And there’s plenty of it. With a catalogue of 18 albums behind them, having written music that draws on every genre Marillion can be considered Progressive not just musically, but in just about every sense.

The band has evolved into a vibrant and international musical force. To those who already love Marillion, the band is something special. To the uninitiated, it’s a potential love affair waiting to happen.

On September 23rd 2016, Marillion will release its 18th studio album, Fuck Everyone And Run (F E A R). The band will also be touring extensively in the UK, Europe and North America, with shows being planned well into 2017.
