Spock’s Beard issue Time Machine video

Spock’s Beard have released a lyric video for their track Bennett Built A Time Machine.

It’s from their 12th studio album The Oblivion Particle, out on August 21st via InsideOut Music and the song is their first to feature drummer Jimmy Keegan on lead vocals.

Vocalist Ted Leonard told Prog: “To me, the album has a Genesis vibe to it, but from a different era of Genesis than people are accustomed to hearing from Spock’s. At the same time, it’s not really a massive departure.”

The band will head out on tour next month for a run of dates across Europe, including five UK shows. They’ll be joined by Synaesthesia and Special Providence.
