“The X Tour Live“, the new release from progressive rockers SPOCK’S BEARD, out February 14 on Music Theories Recordings, documents the one and only American show from the acclaimed band’s tour in support of their last studio album, “X“.
Being spread out geographically makes live shows in the band’s Los Angeles-area home base a rarity these days, but SPOCK’S BEARD was afforded the opportunity to do a one-off with CalProg promoter Jim Harrel at the Downey Civic Theater in Downey, California, during area rehearsals for an upcoming European tour.
“The X Tour Live” is a two-CD set, and will also be available in a limited edition deluxe version that includes a bonus live DVD with exclusive extra features such as a photo slide show, backstage and rehearsal footage, a version of “Their Names Escape Me” without the names but a killer sax solo, and also a time lapse video of the stage setup.
SPOCK’S BEARD has established itself as the crème de la crème of modern progressive rock. Not simply a musician’s band, SPOCK’S BEARD has also mastered the art of penning catchy, harmony-driven songs that will appeal to any fan of well-written pop songs. The music of SPOCK’S BEARD is a reflection of their varied influences, which include classical, pop, rock, jazz and jazz fusion, and R&B, while their intricate multi-part vocal harmonies and use of counterpoint add a whole other dimension.
