A video clip of Spock’s Beard rehearsing and gearing up for their European tour has been uploaded to YouTube.
The band can be seen in the garden outside their rehearsal studio, checking out their own harmony vocals.
They’ll arrive next month to promote new album Brief Nocturnes And Dreamless Sleep, and also celebrate record label InsideOut’s 20th anniversary. Support comes from Beardfish and Sound Of Contact.
Bassist Dave Meros tells Prog: “The new material mixes in well, I think. It’s different – but none of our CDs really fit into a set mould anyway, so I guess I’d say that it’s different in a way that is still definitely Spock’s Beard.
“We’ll play a 50/50 mix of old and new. We’re doing most of the main disc of the new album. But we’re not doing Treasure Abandoned, so that might be a surprise.”
