Biography

Spear Of Destiny (S.O.D.) is a post-punk rock band formed in the 1980s lead by singer songwriter Kirk Brandon, former Theatre of Hate frontman and bassist Stan Stammers. They are best known for their single, Never Take Me Alive, which was a top 20 hit in 1987.

They had (and still have) a cult following and they have produced eleven studio albums, notably ‘One Eyed Jacks’ and ‘World Service’. They still tour today and the studio album, Loadestone, has been very well received. It includes a remarkable cover of the Joy Division track, Transmission.

Kirk Brandon toured with original members of Theatre of Hate in April 2007, and a reissued version of the Westworld album is due to be released with several newly recorded tracks.

S.O.D.’s ‘Imperial Prototype’ was released towards the end of 2007 and saw the band return to form. They embarked on a Singles tour in 2008, and included Adrian Portas (New Model Army / Sex Gang Children) and Craig Adams (ex- The Sisters of Mercy / The Mission).

Early November 2010 a new album was released Omega Point.
