Hard to believe we know but it is true, Kirk Brandon has now been leading SPEAR OF DESTINY for over 30 years.
2014 will see the release of the band’s 13th studio album “31 (Thirty-One)” These brand new recordings will be released on Vinyl, CD and Digital via kirkbrandon.com, Code7 Distribution and The Orchard Digital Platform.
To coincide with the new album’s release on September 15th an extensive UK tour will commence on September 18th and conclude October 19th.
Stockton’s Georgian Theatre has become a second home to Kirk & the band over the last few years and is scheduled to hold the opening night of the tour.
SPEAR OF DESTINY were formed in 1983 after the demise of Kirk Brandon’s post punk iconic rockers THEATRE OF HATE. (Brandon had also, before TOH, been the main man in every punk rockers favorite band of that era The Pack)
The current line up of Spear is the longest serving to date and features Adrian Portas (New Model Army / Sex Gang Children), Craig Adams (Sisters of Mercy / The Cult / The Mission) and Mike Kelly (The Mission).
