A release date has been set for Portishead’s eagerly anticipated third album.

The as-yet-untitled release will be with us on March 31, according to a release schedule Gigwise has seen from Island Records.

As previously reported, the band finished recording the album at the end of October and have spent recent weeks mastering it.

When the album finally sees the light of day, it will be the much lauded outfit’s first release in a decade, following 1994’s ‘Dummy’ and their eponymous second album in 1998.

Meanwhile, Geoff Barrow, Beth Gibbons and Adrian Utley are curating All Tomorrows Parties’ Nightmare Before Christmas in Minehead from December 7-9, featuring the likes of Ladytron, Black Mountain, Autolux, Julian Cope and Malcolm Middleton.
