Based out of Albuquerque, Beard plays loud guitar driven rock with subtle layers of classic punk tones and psychedelic mood swings. The quartet, consisting of Moso, Karie, Dave and Kirk formed in October of 2011. What started as a “just for fun” jam session took on its own life and personality. In their first year the band released several live videos to their newly written songs. Over the summer of 2012 Beard entered the studio with engineer and producer Ryan Martino to begin work on their first album. Ryan had worked with some great names in Albuquerque and became the perfect fit for the band. What started out as an EP for the band turned into a full length album. Beard’s debut album, “Black Unicorn”, was born. The band preceded the release of the album with an official video and single release for “Amp Whore”. The response was electrifying and set the stage for the album release. On October 26th 2012 “Black Unicorn” was released as a limited edition cassette, which is also available for digital download. Plans are already in motion for a new album, second video and touring for 2013. Beard is a basic stripped down message of four friends coming together and shouting out “rock n roll still lives”. The Unicorn lives. This band is bullshit.....Crank it!
