Back in September we did a recording workshop at Sweetwater Studios, the state-of-the-art studio where Nick works and the place where we recorded the drums for Noise Floor. Basically what happened was that we played approximately 30 minutes of music for a class of about a dozen recording enthusiasts. They observed how everything was set up and how a typical album gets recorded. The songs were recorded live in the studio and then mixed later. Artwork was created, copies were made, and you can purchase one here!

The songs on this CD are On A Perfect Day (from "Spock's Beard", our 9th album), Hiding Out (from "Brief Nocturnes and Dreamless Sleep"), and Go The Way You Go (from "The Light")

March 20 , 2018

The preorder for our limited edition of Noise Floor is now live!

This unique set of vinyl albums plus CDs will be available in very short supply. It is a 2LP+2CD set and the thing that makes it so unique is the color. They will be pressed on gold vinyl. (After all these years we'll finally have a gold record.) The first vinyl record of the set is the main album, titled "Noise Floor" and contains 8 tracks. The 2nd record of the set is a four song EP titled "Cutting Room Floor". The 2 CDs have the same content as the vinyl records.

This is a very limited run, less than 90 copies will be sold, and the gold color version of this release is only available to order here.

Shipping date is scheduled for May 25.

Due to the nature of this offering and the high cost of international postage we're only shipping to U.S. addresses. Sorry!!

$35.00 + shipping Sorry, SOLD OUT!

Spock’s Beard announce their 13th studio album "Noise Floor" to be released on May 25, 2018.

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’.

“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.”

The album was once again engineered by long-time collaborator Rich Mouser and will be released as a 2CD digipak (featuring an EP of material from the same sessions), gatefold 2LP + 2CD & as digital download.
