New fund-raising xmas single from Marillion available now

As part of their now-traditional fan-club freebie, rock legends Marillion recorded a version of the festive tune ‘Carol of The Bells’. Normally fan-club tracks stay that way, but this year, the band have made an exception.

Their version of ‘Carol of The Bells’ can be downloaded from iTunes here.

All proceeds made from the sale of this track will benefit the band’s friend Matt Elworthy who currently needs a brain tumour operation. Please buy this mp3 and make his Christmas memorable. Thank you.

Last year, Marillion released ‘Sounds That Can’t Be Made‘, one of their finest releases in some time. It is not yet known when new band material will appear, but guitarist Steve Rothery is set to release his first ever solo album ‘The Ghosts of Pripyat’ in September 2014.
