KIRK BRANDON is delighted to announce a series of aKoustik 2017 dates for this August. 

Kirk Brandon is the voice of Spear of Destiny, Theatre of Hate and Dead Men Walking. With over 15 studio albums and countless single releases, his career now spans well over 30 years. He has enjoyed worldwide success with all three of the above bands and is also a leader in every punk rock poll by being the singer and songwriter in The Pack. 

Over the last 9 years, Kirk has released five solo acoustic studio albums (the “Dutch Masters” series) that have pulled tracks from all era’s of his career, these albums have also featured many of the people Kirk has worked with and collaborated with over the years including Derek Forbes (Simple Minds), Slim Jim Phantom (Stray Cats), Mike Peters (The Alarm) & Clint Boon (Inspiral Carpets).

The latest of these solo acoustic albums entitled “Dutch Masters Volume Five” has become, in it’s first year of release, the best seller in the series. 

“DM5” features two outstanding Theatre of Hate interpretations, a James Bond theme and a Country and Western cover of a Ry Cooder tune !!!

As in 2016, 2017 will see Kirk joined by master cello player Sam Sansbury both in the studio and at live shows. This year has already seen shows take place in Australia and Crewe! In August and September a full UK Tour takes place with a very special trip to the Ukraine thrown in for good measure! Expect some very special shows that will feature all the hits and misses!!! including  ‘Never Take Me Alive’, ‘Do You Believe In The Westworld?’, ‘Worldservice’, ‘ So In Love With You’, ‘Young Men’, ‘Original Sin’.

The BBC’s Jeremy Vine says “@kirkbrandon is one of our greatest musical geniuses” “Brandon’s vocal is fuller, it is more powerful, it is more tuneful. But what impresses me more is his total clarity; not only vocally but his overall performance – he lives, breathes, screams, shakes these songs out of his body. At times he appears to be in the throws of an exorcism, bent double and shuddering rhythmically”
