The latest album from legendary Prog-rockers Spock’s Beard, ‘Brief Nocturnes And Dreamless Sleep’, is out now and has been met with critical acclaim across the board including Classic Rock Magazine calling it ‘arguably the best album of their 20-year career to date’, and the band recently completed a European headline tour with label-mates Sound of Contact and Beardfish. Just previous to starting that tour, the band recorded a music video for the track ‘Submerged’ and you can check it out here:
Alan Morse had this to say about the filming of the video: ‘This is the best video we’ve done yet, we’re really proud of it. We had a great time making it, though it was a lot of work. It looks fantastic – the director, actors and crew were all really top notch, it was a pleasure to work with them. The Director Michael Beaudry had a powerful vision to go with the song, and I think he executed it brilliantly. Plus he’s just a really cool guy! Hope you all like it, more to come!’
You can order the album through the InsideOut Music Shop here.
Spock’s Beard’s new studio album marks the recording debut of long-time live drummer Jimmy Keegan, and vocalist / guitarist Ted Leonard (Enchant, Thought Chamber). As mentioned previously 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.
