Hard to believe we know but it is true, Kirk Brandon has now been leading SPEAR OF DESTINY for over 38 years.
SPEAR OF DESTINY were formed in 1983 after the demise of Kirk Brandons post punk iconic rockers THEATRE OF HATE. (Brandon had also, before TOH, been the main man in every punk rockers favourite 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 Phil Martini (Jim Jones and the Righteous Mind) on drums. During 2019 the line up was boasted by Saxophonist Clive Osborne who will be staying in the line up for 2021.
On April 6th 2018 SPEAR OF DESTINY released their 14th studio album Tontine The album was been fully funded from a private fan pre-sale. The album is officially released for Brandon's own Eastersnow Recording Company label imprint and is available on CD, Vinyl and Download across Europe. US label Cleopatra Records will be handling the North American release.
Just before the lockdown of 2020/1 the band went into the studio and re-recorded perhaps their best known album, 1985's WorldService. Eventually releasing the album to much critical acclaim in November 2020. The upcoming 'WorldService @35' UK Tour set will feature the album + b-sides in full and the show will be finished with a career spanning extended SOD encore.
Comments on Kirk Brandon and Spear of Destiny:
The BBCs Jeremy Vine says, @kirkbrandon is one of our greatest musical geniuses
John Robbs Louder Than War Spear of Destiny are criminally underrated and are one of Britains best, Boys Own, punch the air, grandiose RocknRoll bands.
Mojo wrote: Kirk Brandon is on of the UKs best kept secrets.
On SOD's previous studio album 31(Thirty-One).
BBC Radios Jools Holland: possibly [Spear of Destinys] best album in 20 years
Louder Than War: 9/10 Brandon puts his all into every song with epic bombast, coming across as a tragic rock n roll anti-hero. He is the Wagner of rock n roll. And the haircuts still pretty cool.
Aberdeen Voice: Thirty years together makes for flawless musicianship, a unique sound, and some remarkable riffs and harmonies.
