HARK Finish Recording Debut Album

Welsh heavy power-rock trio HARK (Jimbob Isaac (ex TAINT) – Guitar, Vocals Nikolai Ribnikov (ex-WHYTELEAF) – Bass, Simon Bonwick (ex- WHYTELEAF) – Drums) have finished recording their forthcoming Season of Mist debut album. The as-yet-untitled album was recorded at Monnow Valley Studios in Wales (BLACK SABBATH, RUSH, JUDAS PRIEST, PORTISHEAD), and mixed by CONVERGE guitarist Kurt Ballou (CONVERGE, HIGH ON FIRE, KVELERTAK, YOUNG WIDOWS).

Regarding the recording, front-man Jimbob Isaac stated:

“Fingers to the bone. That has been one of our mottos since HARK’s inception, and it carried us through to the recording studio. Long days, little sleep and grim determination made this record the beast that we believe it to be. We pushed ourselves in all kinds of ways, and that commitment resonates throughout. The upcoming mini-tour will be a nice introduction for our fans, before the record release and more lengthy tours follow in 2014. We’re having fun biding our time, but there’s only so long you can keep a bull in its pen.”

HARK have also announced a string of European tour dates. The trek, which starts on November 27 in France, will travel through Switzerland, Germany, and the UK. The band is also slated to make an appearance at next year’s Wild Custom Guitars Festival in Clermont-Ferrand, France. A full list of confirmed tour dates can be found below.

Led by former TAINT frontman and acclaimed graphic artist Isaac, HARK has already released one sold-out seven-inch single and has toured extensively with RED FANG and CLUTCH throughout Europe. With fresh chops and almighty riff power, HARK continue to fuse punk attack with Sabbathian dirge, and decorate post-whatever angularities with classic rock flourish. While Isaac’s vocals expand on his tried and tested palette, his lyrics continue to shatter prose with bleak metaphor and acerbic spittle. Former WHYTELEAF rhythm section Ribnikov and Bonwick, the HARK engine, bring an endlessly creative pummel. Their dynamic chops, and blood lust for riffs meld with Isaac’s honed and equally determined musical vision.

News and tour information available through the Season of Mist website, the HARK websiteTwitter and Facebook page. For information on Jimbob Isaac’s artwork visit his website here.

11/27 Le Havre, Tetris – FRA

EARTHLESS Unveils New Song

Award-winning San Diego power rock band EARTHLESS will release its brand new album From the Ages on October 8 via Tee Pee Records. The first new studio album from the globally celebrated trio since the release of 2007’s critically acclaimed Rhythms from a Cosmic Sky, the hour-long double LP was recorded with producer Phil Manley (Trans Am, The Fucking ChampsSubArachnoid Space).

NOISEY premiered the new EARTHLESS track Equus October, calling the band’s sound “sonic sculptures as powerful as Heisenberg meth.”  The song premiere also includes an in-depth interview with drummer Mario Rubalcaba, who talks in detail about the band, recently dubbed “expert practitioners of an outdated art” by the New York Times.

Head over to NOISEY and crank EARTHLESS “Equus October” at THIS location.

EARTHLESS (L to R: Mike Eginton, Mario Rubalcaba, Isaiah Mitchell)

From the Ages is available to pre-order now via iTunes and as a limited edition, colored double vinyl album (pre-order LP HERE).

Stereogum recently unleashed the brand new EARTHLESS song Violence of the Red Sea, calling the band’s sound “an absolutely apocalyptic brand of instrumental stoner-psychedelic-doom that relies on each player basically being a total powerhouse carrying an equal (and very heavy) load.”  Rock EARTHLESS‘ stunning “Violence of the Red Sea” right now at THIS location.

Pitchfork is also giving music fans the first taste of new EARTHLESS, premiering the new song Uluru Rock.  Check out EARTHLESS‘ “Uluru Rock” now at THIS location.

“We feel this is some of the strongest material that we have ever created and we cannot wait to get out there and share it with everyone in a live setting,” said the band when asked for comment.

From the Ages‘ sprawling, epic cover art was created by renowned rock music poster artist Alan Forbes (Queens of the Stone Age, SWANS, Black Crowes) while the record’s surreal inner design was brought to life by the band’s own Mike Eginton.

Formed in 2001, EARTHLESS prides itself on creating energetic, utterly unique and free thinking instrumental music inspired by an eclectic mix of German kraut rock and Japanese heavy blues-rock. The Californian trio has dedicated itself to mastery of the mind-bending jam session, evoking the spirits of Jimi Hendrix and Black Sabbath in equal measure.

Named after a song title from vintage New York garage-psych band The Druids of Stonehenge, EARTHLESS‘ sound has been called “a sonic kaleidoscope of lava and lightning”, earning it the title of “California’s loudest band.”  The group delivers “one of the best live shows in all of modern, heavy rock,” leading to one reviewer stating that the band’s “epic shredding harkens back to the days were psychedelic rock had balls the size of grapefruits and wasn’t afraid to take its listeners on a ride for which they may never return.”

Each member of EARTHLESS has done time in many other bands. Drummer (and former pro skater) Mario Rubalcaba currently plays in the hardcore punk band OFF! and has also occupied the drum throne in Rocket From The Crypt and Hot Snakes amongst many others. Bassist Mike Eginton played with Electric Nazarene and guitarist Isaiah Mitchell was most recently in Howlin’ Rain, has played with Nebula and Drunk Horse and also heads up the Bay Area band Golden Void.

In the end, EARTHLESS is the musical rock that grounds the three musicians and now, after more than half a decade since the release of their last studio LP, EARTHLESS has returned and is out to prove — through sheer rock power — why they are considered the cream of the modern day heavy psych scene.

Track listing:
     1.) Violence of the Red Sea (14:44)
     2.) Uluru Rock (14:08)
     3.) Equus October (5:42)
     4.) From the Ages (30:55)
EARTHLESS has just announce a handful of west coast tour dates in support of From the Ages. The just-released live dates are as follows:

October 17     Long Beach, CA          Alex’s Bar   (tickets on sale HERE)
October 21     Seattle, WA                El Corazon  (tickets on sale HERE)

“EARTHLESS From the Ages (Tee Pee) is the first album in six years by the San Diego psychedelic band, who make songs in long chunks of episodic form via wah-wah pedal, riff and groove; they’re expert practitioners of an outdated art” – THE NEW YORK TIMES

“To describe EARTHLESS’ music is a bit like describing a dream. In fact, there’s nothing altogether straight forward about the band’s sound except, well, that they fucking rock. Yeah, let’s go with that description: Fucking-rock” – SAN DIEGO CITYBEAT

“EARTHLESS purvey majestic acid rock, a genre that bakes the neurons with industrious instrumentals. And this trio blisters more brain cells than most. EARTHLESS keeps even this interpretation ruggedly exploratory, moving with transcendent skill from classic rock badlands to heavy metal cosmos” – SF WEEKLY

“EARTHLESS can do dynamics, shifting from hazy clouds of feedback to sludgy doom riffage, but they generally don’t. Instead the band starts at 100% speaker-cone-bursting ear-drum-rattling intensity and stays there for as long as physically possible. It’s sort of like doing level-4 hot yoga in the chamber of Tommy Chong’s bong” – WASHINGTON CITY PAPER

“Think of Hendrix playing with Sabbath without the vocals and add Cream’s sense of movement and thud… insanely gifted EARTHLESS: they’re a whole other thing in American power rock right now. They point a way that few will be able to follow” – ALL MUSIC

“Music so freewheeling that it begs to be slathered with hyperbole. You know, the usual ‘gamma rays of madness bashing your DNA into the Stone Age on laser fingers’ type of thing. EARTHLESS have massive chops” – STYLUS
