Wesley Wyatt and Conner Dugan from Texas prog metal outfit Harken just issued this announcement about deciding to call it a day:
"Sometime last year, after the release of 'Shira,' we got together to discuss the future of Harken. We did some writing to see if we still had any chemistry in the band and, while we did enjoy what we wrote, we decided that continuing in the same fashion as we've always done wouldn't lead to anything productive any time soon.
"Instead of just building up more and more expectation and failure to deliver, we've decided to hang it up with Harken. We had a lot of fun with this project and made quite a few new friends of fans and musicians alike. It was a great learning experience and we're thankful for it. We also can't forget to thank Chris Todd for his amazing contributions vocally.
"We'd like to leave you with the final instrumental we wrote. You haven't heard the last of us as individuals but thank you for all your support." More...
Harken just released the "Shira" album, which can be heard in full below, and the band also comments:
"Today is the day! Harken's debut album 'Shira' is out on Bandcamp and for streaming on YouTube! For those who need iTunes, Spotify, Apple Music, etc, they're coming very soon! If you pre-ordered the album on Bandcamp what was literally years ago, you should have an email now with your download link.
"We're so sorry for the wait and as a bonus, we've added ten demo tracks from what is to be our follow up. Some songs aren't complete, but that's how demo's work, right? We hope you enjoy them.
"We've put countless hours into this album, recorded every part several times (I think three was the final number of re-recording sessions) and I've personally put in more time mixing this project than I've put into anything else. It's not perfect but it's about damn time, right?" More...
