Spock’s Beard are getting ready to release their 12th studio album, The Oblivion Particle, and now have made the first lyric video from that album available. The Prog Report is pleased to premiere the track “Minion” exclusively in the US on our site.
This is a great rock track that kicks off with some a cappella harmonies before jumping into the trademark Spock’s Beard sound. Check it out here:
The Oblivion Particle is the follow-up to 2013’s highly successful Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep. In addition to Ted Leonard’s soaring vocals and Dave Meros’ distinctive bass, Alan Morse adds autoharp, banjolele, electric sitar and mandolin to his array of instruments, drummer Jimmy Keegan takes over lead vocals on “Bennett Built a Time Machine” and Ryo expands his arsenal of keyboard sounds throughout the album. In addition, virtuoso Kansas violinist David Ragsdale lends his touch to the album’s majestic closer, “Disappear.”
As with the previous album Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep, The Oblivion Particle was recorded at The Mouse House and produced by Rich Mouser, Alan Morse and John Boegehold, a band collaborator of many years.
