“We feel like we’ve achieved what we set out to achieve through music,” says  front man Johann Beardraven. “A lot more people have beards now than when we started out, and people now realise that beards are totally boss. We’ll now be moving on to Phase Two of our pro-beard operation.”

“We’ll still be actively propagating a pro-beard agenda – but don’t expect us to be out there playing shows” says bassist Nathaniel Beard, suggesting that plans are vague, but “may well include starting some kind of religious organisation, an armed military unit, or moving into the realm of children’s entertainment.”

The Beards, who famously only ever perform songs about one topic, will be  performing two sets jam-packed with pro-beard anthems from their five album back-catalogue.

Known for their original, very interactive live shows and sense of humour and plan to go out in much the same vein.
