John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest Confirm First All-New Studio Album In 14 Years
John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest will release North in October – their first all-new studio album since 1999′s Nexus.
It’s described as a “true group effort” between guitarist-vocalist Lees, bassist-vocalist Craig Fletcher, keyboardist-vocalist Jez Smith and drummer Kevin Whitehead and will appear as a standard CD, vinyl and a limited-edition double-disc set including a live recording from Buxton Opera House in 2011.
BJH tour the UK in November, with guests Gordon Giltrap and Oliver Wakeman at all shows except Edinburgh, where they’re joined instead by Anne-Marie Helder of Panic Room and Mostly Autumn.
North is released on October 7 via Esoteric Antenna.
