DESCRIPTION

We're absolutely delighted to be able to host the official Album Release Show for the mighty Hark.

'MACHINATIONS' will be released on the 24th February via French metal label Season of Mist Records and we'll be celebrating its release on the 5th March. It is the follow-up to the senseational globally critically acclaimed 'CRYSTALLINE' which was released back in 2014.

We've put together an extra noisy lineup including the incredible TAMAN SHUD, Punching Swans, Steve Strong, Harrowed and The Infinite Three.

Tickets will be £10 advanced but there will be limited amounts of earlybirds available @ £8.

THE LINEUP

HARK
Undoubtedly one of the best heavy bands in the UK right now. Their unique blend of progressive sludge-rock is a joy to behold. This will be a very special show indeed.
FFO: Mastodon, Taint, Clutch

Hardcore aggression with a doomy swagger and more than a touch of prog-psych. Fans of Mastodon, Neurosis, or Clutch will find much to enjoy here (Revolver Magazine)

TAMAN SHUD
London garage-noise punks Taman Shud will be bringing their chaotic live show right before Hark take to the stage. A dark and furious whirlwind of noise.
FFO: The Melvins, Godspeed You Black Emperor, Neurosis

PUNCHING SWANS
Twisting, gnarly mutated rock 'n'n roll, Punching Swans wil take you on a journey.
FFO: Refused, McLusky, Butthole Surfers

a carnivorous groove machine, a sonically schizophrenic rumble (The RingMaster Review)

STEVE STRONG
One-man-band supremo, Steve Strong makes genre-transcending rock which ranges from heartfelt to furious.
FFO: Hella, The Mars Volta, Neutral Milk Hotel
https://stevestrongmusic.bandcamp.com/

a wonderfully varied musical journey, one that is both inventive and engaging (Echoes & Dust)

HARROWED
Gritty, twisted spectacular noise.
FFO: Cursed, His Hero is Gone
https://harrowed.bandcamp.com/

A blistering display of metallic hardcore loaded with heavy Entombed-style riffs and destructive percussion. (Cut & Paste)

Swirling psych/post-rock with noise and metal elements.
