Lead vocalist Nick DVirgilio has left Spocks Beard.
A founder-member of the American prog rockers, this is what the multi-instrumentalist said about his decision:
As you may or may not know, for almost two years now I have been working for Cirque Du Soleil on the touring showTotem.travelinga bit of the globe with my family on an adventure that has been great, but also very tough. Great because I am finally able to fully support my family with this very unstable life I chose as a musician, but also very tough because this job has made it hard to do other things and the main thing is Spocks Beard.
The Spocks guys want to keep moving forward and it is just Murphys Law for SB that everyone else is totally available to tour at the moment and I am not.
