Bio:

Spock's Beard are a progressive rock band formed in 1992 in Los Angeles by brothers Neal and Alan Morse. Neal played keyboards and was the lead vocalist, as well as being the primary songwriter before leaving the band in 2002 to pursue a solo career.Alan plays electric guitar. The original line-up consisted of the Morse brothers, along with fellow musicians Nick D'Virgilio and John Ballard (bass).The following year Ballard was replaced by Dave Meros and the band subsequently released their debut album, The Light, in 1995.The quartet were later joined by veteran keyboardist Ryo Okumoto. Neal Morse departed in 2002, with D'Virgilio taking over lead vocals until his departure in 2011. The band currently consists of longstanding members Alan Morse, Dave Meros, and Ryo Okumoto, along with newer members drummer Jimmy Keegan and vocalist Ted Leonard; both of whom had performed in a live capacity with the band previously (Keegan from D'Virgilio's switch to frontman and Leonard in the immediate aftermath of D'Virgilio's departure).The band plays a brand of progressive rock with pop music leanings (drawing much influence from Yes and Genesis). The band is also well known for their intricate multi-part vocal harmonies (such as those found on certain Gentle Giant songs) and use of counterpoint on cuts such as "Gibberish", "Thoughts (Parts I and II)", "A Guy Named Sid Pt.5: Sid's Boy Choir", "Long Time Suffering", "Devil's Got My Throat", "The Healing Colors of Sound, Pt. 2", and "Afterthoughts."

Album:

Legendary US progressive rockers Spock's Beard have announced the release of their 13th studio album, "Noise Floor". As announced previously, for this album Ted Leonard, Alan Morse, Dave Meros & Ryo Okumoto are joined in the studio once again by drummer & original member Nick D'Virgilio, who records his first album with the band since 2010's "X".Spock's Beard is a band in a continual state of evolution, as is always the case with genuinely creative musicians. And their new album, "Noise Floor", fits perfectly into this process."We are always about evolution, not revolution. But what we have done this time is make the songs more melodic", believes vocalist & guitarist Ted Leonard. "We still love our crazy prog, but now appreciate how important it is to grab people's attention early on."As with all Spock's Beard songs, most of the new album was written by the individual members and then brought to the rest of the band as high quality demos. "We all do this type of thing in our home studios", adds Leonard. "So, by the time they reach the stage where the entire band get to judge them, they are really developed and therefore everyone can make a reasoned judgement."Much of what you will listen to here is very much the product of fresh inspiration from the Californian band. One key change on this album sees the return of drummer Nick D'Virgilio, who originally left in 2011. There are also two violinists, a cello player, a viola player and an English horn featured on the album, thereby giving the sound a slightly more evocative and persuasive twist.The album was once again engineered by longtime collaborator Rich Mouser.

Line Up:

Ted Leonard - lead vocals, guitars
Alan Morse - electric guitar, acoustic guitar, pedal steel guitar, lap steel guitar, mandolin, autoharp, backing vocals
Ryo Okumoto - organ, mellotron, piano, synths, clavinet, vocoder
