Spock's Beard add Nocturnes dates

Spock's Beard have confirmed more European tour dates in support of last year's album Brief Nocturnes And Dreamless Sleep.

The journey includes two UK appearances – The Musician, Leicester, on September 17 and The Dome, London, the following night. Support comes from Sixxis.

Their 11th studio outing was their first with vocalist Ted Leonard and drummer Jimmy Keegan, and featured two tracks co-written by former leader Neal Morse. Prog called it “an entrancing work, their best-sounding record to date,” while Classic Rock labelled it “arguably the best album of their 20-year career.”

Bassist Dave Meros said last year: “Our CDs are always different, but it’s Spock’s Beard all the way – a nice cohesive disc where the songs flow into one another.”

Meanwhile, Leonard’s band Enchant have confirmed the launch of The Great Divide, their first album in ten years, in September.

Martin Kielty

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
