SPEAR OF DESTINY — Announce UK Tour This Summer

SPEAR OF DESTINY 
ANNOUNCE UK TOUR 
THIS SUMMER

“Spear of Destiny are criminally underrated and are one of Britain’s best, Boys Own, punch the air, grandiose Rock ‘n’ Roll bands.” – Louder Than War
“Kirk Brandon is one of the UK’s best kept secrets.” – MOJO
“@kirkbrandon is one of our greatest musical geniuses.” – Jeremy Vine 
“Thirty years together makes for flawless musicianship, a unique sound, and some remarkable riffs and harmonies.” – Aberdeen Voice

SPEAR OF DESTINY have announced a run of UK live dates for Summer 2022, kicking off in Hertfordshire on 2 July. 

Hard to believe, but Kirk Brandon has been leading Spear of Destiny for over 39 years. Formed in 1983 after the demise of Brandon’s iconic post-punk band Theatre of Hate, Spear’s current line-up is the longest serving to date. 

Featuring 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), the line-up was bolstered by the addition of saxophonist Clive Osborne in 2019. 

In 2018, Spear of Destiny released their fourteenth studio album ‘Tontine’ — fully funded from a private fan presale. Just before the 2020 lockdown, the band went into the studio and re-recorded perhaps their best known album, 1985’s ‘World Service’, with the record released to much critical acclaim in November 2020.

The upcoming UK tour will feature the album and B-sides in full, and the show will be finished off with a career-spanning extended encore. Full dates and details as follows:
