Kirk Brandon has confirmed a string of live dates for 2019, including shows with Spear Of Destiny, Theatre Of Hate and The Pack.

Spear Of Destiny were formed in 1983 after the demise of Kirk Brandon’s post punk iconic rockers Theatre Of Hate. (Brandon had also, before Theatre Of Hate been the main man in every punk rockers favourite band of that era The Pack)

In 1980, Kirk Brandon formed Theatre Of Hate from the ashes of heralded punk band The Pack. Joining Kirk on vocals were notable punk musicians Stan Stammers and Luke Rendall, along with old school friend, Steve Guthrie and Canadian born John ‘Boy’ Lennard, who revolutionised the band’s sound with his haunting sax lines.

“The origins of The Pack started with the original band the Pack of Lies. It consisted of me, John Fuller (an old school friend) and a Scottish drummer called Rab Fae Beith. We rehearsed and got the songs together at John’s uncle’s house in Stanmore“said Brandon.

“All band members myself included, I would describe as a fairly unhinged bunch of people, and what passed for normal, amongst the band and its constant crowd of friends and supporters, did not tie in necessarily with the outside world as a whole. This is a period that only now filmmakers are beginning to see the significance of. With all the violence, drugs and with one member of the band becoming religious in the end it had to implode sooner or later”.
