Hard to believe Kirk Brandon has been leading SPEAR OF DESTINY for over 30 years. He looks younger and fresher than the rest of us put together ...
To coincide with new album "31 (THIRTY-ONE)" the band are touring in the auttumn - excellent news!
Rising from the grave of bleak post-punkers Theatre of Hate, singer/guitarist Kirk Brandon and bassist Stan Stammers' brand of goth-rock encompassed romantic, poetic lyrics set to dark, slow chants smothered in atmosphere and dry ice. Oh, and they rocked like bastards as well.
A total powerhouse live, SOD take no prisoners. This is maximum rock ’n’ roll from a real band with real soul.
Current Spear line-up is the longest serving to date with Adrian Portas (New Model Army / Sex Gang Children), Craig Adams (Sisters of Mercy / The Cult / The Mission) and Mike Kelly (The Mission).
Look, don't take our word for it ...
