HARK will kick off their European in support of the band's album debut 'Crystalline' as special guests of PRONG at Groningen's Vera in The Netherlands tomorrow on the 17th of April! A full list of shows including a festival performance at Germany's Summer Breeze can be viewed below.

"Having the chance to tour with such ground breaking visionaries as Prong, is an opportunity we can't wait to fulfill", comments bandleader Jimbob. "As well as having the commonality of being power trios, both bands champion the cross pollination of genres and influences, and we're more than happy to be a part of such a diverse tour."

"I've taken the role of art director, as well as co-director alongside the super talented Rhodri Thomas", mastermind Jimbob Isaac comments. "We've conjured up a video that gives fans further insight to the visual world of Hark. It was a fun shoot, super DIY in approach, and we wrapped in two days."

Biography

Hark_(c)ester_segarra_0336_small

The phoenix of classical myth was considered to be a creature of great beauty. Bursting into flames at the end of its life cycle, the bird would be reborn out of the ashes of its predecessor. HARK share a similar fate as the trio is spawned from the remnants of celebrated British heavy rockers TAINT. The creative hand of frontman Jimbob Isaac can be clearly felt throughout HARK's fantastic debut album "Crystalline". Angular riffing, pounding rhythms, and dually melodic and his unrelentingly ferocious vocals lead to galloping passages that show the maturity of a band far more honed than expected from a debut. The Welsh did not leave any detail to chance, but carefully crafted music, lyrics and visuals into an all encompassing concept. This diligence includes having their first full-length mixed by Kurt Ballou of CONVERGE fame (KVELERTAK, TORCHE), who added a powerful yet crystal clear production to HARK's unique sound. The artwork was personally designed and drawn by Jimbob Isaac, who is not just known as an outstanding musician but also working as an acclaimed graphic artist. "Crystalline" furthermore features guest vocals from Neil Fallon (CLUTCH) on the stunning track "Clear Light of....". HARK will literally rock the world with this release. Crank your volume up high and get blown away!
