John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest to Release ‘North’ in October

Barclay James Harvest

Oft-overlooked English prog band Barclay James Harvest (now operating as John Lees’ Barclay James Harvest) will release a new LP, North, on October 7th. This is the band’s first studio album in over a decade.

Though the album is led by Lees, the band’s frontman and founding member, it’s described as a “true group effort” between Lees, bassist Craig Fletcher, keyboardist Jez Smith, and drummer Kevin Whitehead. A limited-edition double-disc version will include a live recording from 2011 at the Buxton Opera House.

The band (featuring guest players keyboardist Oliver Wakeman and guitarist Gordon Giltrap) will be touring the UK in November.
