Beardfish is a Swedish progressive rock band formed in 2001. Their style resembles progressive rock bands from the 1970s, such as Yes and Genesis. The band was signed by InsideOut Music after releasing two albums independently; they have since released three more albums.[1][2]

In 2008, the band toured with a fellow progressive rock band The Tangent. They were scheduled to tour North America in the summer of 2009 as part of Progressive Nation, a tour organized by Dream Theater's then-drummer Mike Portnoy; however, they were forced to withdraw when InsideOut lost funding after its distributor, SPV, declared bankruptcy.[3]

Beardfish have recently released their sixth album, Mammoth, on March 28, 2011 in Europe and March 29, 2011 in North America.
