Hot on the heels of announcing the release of their eleventh studio album, ‘Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep’, and return to InsideOut Music, progressive rock legends Spock’s Beard have revealed some UK tour dates for May in support of said release. The tour dates can be found below:


UK Tour Dates 2013


3.5.2013 Sheffield – Corporation
4.5.2013 Glasgow – The Arches
5.5.2013 Newcastle – Academy 2
6.5.2013 Bilston – Robin 2
7.5.2013 London – The Garage


The new studio album marks the recording debut of long-time drummer Jimmy Keegan, and vocalist / guitarist Ted Leonard (Enchant, Thought Chamber). It also sees the return of one familiar name to the song-writing credits, that of Neal Morse who has co-written two tracks after having left the band way back in 2002. Of the collaboration, bass-player Dave Meros says: “Al and Neal are brothers, of course, and keep in regular contact with each other. What happened was that Al spoke to Neal and told him he was working on some ideas. Neal said he’d love to help, so Al went down to Nashville, where his brother’s now living, and they collaborated on the songs.”


Co-produced by Al Morse, Rich Mouser and John Boegehold, ‘Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep’ is described by Meros as ‘is quirky, edgy, (and) reminding us a little bit of older times in the band, but also taking us further forward.’  More information and tour dates to be announced soon!
