Porcupine Tree is offering a download sneak peek of its forthcoming multi-disc live project Octane Twisted. Fans will have to wait until November for the entire album, but they can hear “I Drive the Hearse” now — by entering an email into the widget above.

The 2CD/DVD set was recorded on May 2, 2010 in Chicago, capturing one the shows where the band’s 10th studio project The Incident was presented in its entirety.

Octane Twisted’s first disc is comprised of a live take on that recording, culminating with “I Drive the Hearse.” The Incident rose to the Top 30 in both America and England back in 2009.

Disc 2 features a cross section of classic Porcupine Tree tracks, including “Hatesong,” “Russia On Ice/The Pills I’m Taking,” “Stars Die,” “Bonnie The Cat,” “Even Less,” “Dislocated Day” and “Arriving Somewhere But Not Here.” Disc 3 is a bonus DVD from the same Chicago performance. Amazon has a November 20, 2012 street date for the set.

Porcupine Tree is led by Steven Wilson, who has produced artists like Opeth and Anja Garbarek and done remixing work for King Crimson, all while maintaining a well-respected solo career.
