Steve Rothery – guitarist and founder member of UK Prog giants Marillion. “The Ghosts of Pripyat” is the long awaited solo album from one of the most melodic and atmospheric guitar players around.

This album has been a long time coming. I had an offer to record a solo album during the recording of Misplaced Childhood in 1985 and while making the Brave album at Miles Copeland’s chateau in France I was offered a deal to make an instrumental album for his “No Speak” label, however, I decided to record the first Wishing Tree album instead.

Fast forward another twenty years and I’m invited to play at the annual Plovdiv guitar festival in October 2013. Having committed to the festival it left me with the small problem of what to play for an hour. “Blues in A” just wasn’t going to cut it. I had a few strong ideas and got together for a couple of writing sessions with my good friend and fellow guitarist Dave Foster. Dave and I have a great musical chemistry which brought forth a lot of amazing music. After a couple of days rehearsal with the fantastic rhythm section of Leon Parr and Yatim Halimi I realised this was going to be something really special. The live in Plovdiv album and video from that performance gives you an idea of where the I felt the finished album, “The Ghosts of Pripyat”, could go.

The Ghosts of Pripyat album has two fantastic guest performances from Steve Hackett on “Morpheus” and “The Old Man of the Sea” which also features a great solo by Steven Wilson. The cover image of the album is an aerial shot of Pripyat by French photographer Yann Arthus-Bertrand.
