This brand new album marks a return to the studio for the wonderful award winning Italian Symphonic Progressive band: PREMIATA FORNERIA MARCONI!

First discovered by EMERSON LAKE & PALMER (and most Prog fans) in 1973/74 when ELP issued storming English versions of two fantastic PFM albums: ‘Photos Of Ghosts’ and ‘The World Became The World’ on their own record label: Manticore records, and after that they never looked back!

Despite various line-up changes throughout their career, PFM are still recording and touring to this day!
‘Emotional Tattoos’, the band’s new 2017 album is a sensational new release that marks the return of the group’s trademark sound after two more experimental releases. These were: ‘PFM In Classic, From Mozart To Celebration’, dedicated to leading European classical music composers, and 'States Of Imagination', a journey of sound and images comprising eight short movies, each with a different theme and atmosphere.

‘Emotional Tattoos’ takes a melodic rock route, while offering surprising musical twists and turns including moody synthesizers, sweeping orchestral arrangements, straightforward guitar-driven passages and wonderful ballads.
The record finds its inspiration in a compassionate and wide look at the predicament of our planet and humanity, as well as on the relationship between music and dreaming. Its all-encompassing sound expresses energy and deeply stimulates the powers of imagination, embracing and inviting all listeners to really sink into its musical stories. These are not just songs: these are emotional tattoos you can feel on your skin.

Drummer and singer Franz Di Cioccio commented: "We have created a powerful record that will bring the sound and creative energy of PFM all over the world."

PFM is a very eclectic and exuberant musical group with a distinctive style that impressively combines Rock, Progressive, and Classical music into one mesmerizing sonic entity.
Formed in 1971, the band quickly gained a prominent place on the international scene by making it to the Billboard charts (for 1973's 'Photos Of Ghosts'), and winning a Gold record in Japan, while constantly ruling the charts back in their home country, even until today. Recently, PFM were honoured with position #50 in the "UK Classic Rock Hall of Fame" of the 100 most important artists in the world.

‘Emotional Tattoos’ certainly sounds like the PFM style of Symphonic Prog we all know and love!

This Special Edition 2CD Digi-Pak edition includes both the English & Italian version of the album.

‘Emotional Tattoos’ is also available as a Double 180gm Vinyl LP+2CD Package – Stock # 2009715

‘Emotional Tattoos’ is released on 27th October 2017.
