SPEAR OF DESTINY was formed in 1983 after the demise of Kirk Brandon’s 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)
Brandon and SOD have now notched up no fewer than twelve studio albums, 5 for major labels, 3 for big indie’s and of late releasing material through their own Eastersnow Recording Company.
May 2012 saw Brandon resurrect THEATRE OF HATE with original members to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the ground breaking album “Westworld” which was produced by Mick Jones of The Clash. The show’s culminated in a sold out performance at London’s Islington Academy.
The current Spear line up sees Brandon joined by Craig Adams (The Mission, Sisters of Mercy and The Cult) on bass, Adrian Portas (New Model Army & Sex Gang Children) on guitar with new drummer Mike Kelly sitting behind the kit as Robin Goodridge has left to re-join Gavin Rosendale in BUSH. Kirk is also lucky enough to have the services of Steve Allen-Jones or Simon Hinkler (The Mission) on keyboards when required.
The current SOD set list comprises of songs spanning the bands entire career with crowd pleasers like Liberator, Mickey, Worldservice and Rainmaker leaving everybody with a huge smile on their face’s at the end of the night.
These shows ahead of the Westworld weekend promise to bring the best of Spear of Destiny to your ears in an amazing venue.
