Spear Of Destiny at The Marrs Bar, Worcester 11th December 2022
Reaching nigh on forty years since their formation, Spear of Destiny’s early career was a fractious one. But since reforming in the late ‘90s, ringleader Kirk Brandon has continued to look to the future: supervising a major reissue campaign of the band’s back catalogue, playing sell-out shows at iconic venues including London’s 100 Club and Manchester’s Ritz, adorning festival lineups and relentlessly writing new music.
New album ‘Ghost Population’ sees the band take another solid step forwards, with tracks spanning everything from personal to political and past to present. Speaking of the LP, Brandon explains:
With some tracks written during lockdown, and others penned as far back as 1986, ‘Ghost Population’ is a journey through the evolution of society as much as it is the evolution of the band. Spear of Destiny have marked the album’s release with an extensive UK tour this November and December. Kicking off in Leeds on 22 November, the 23 date tour, included the Marrs Bar in Worcester on 11th December, will give audiences a chance to see the tracks of ‘Ghost Population’ performed live for the first time.
Featuring the band’s longest serving lineup to date, including 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), as well as Clive Osborne on saxophone and Steve Allen-Jones on keys, full dates and details of the tour are below.
