About Denial: Simon Townshend, a familiar name with his own unique sound, originally released DENIAL, his most personal and affecting work to date, on April 1st 2014 on his own US STIR Music label.

Liner notes for Looking Out Looking In have been written by Pete, and for Denial by Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder, a self-described massive fan who also features on two newly-added songs. On the new version of the 2012 album, Vedder features on the new bonus tracks ‘She Asked Me’ and ‘I Am The Answer.
