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.
