Season of Mist is proud to announce the signing of Welsh rockers Hark. Led by former Taint frontman and graphic artist Jimbob Isaac, Hark has already released one sold-out 7” and has toured with Red Fang and Clutchthroughout Europe.
Commented Jimbob on the future of Hark and signing to Season of Mist: “H A R K has poured our heart and soul in to the formation of the band, as well as the three years of writing and playing together. Despite being a relatively new band, our history and work in previous bands have given us a sound and ethic that result in a hard hitting delivery of passion and heaviness. Season of Mist's enthusiasm for H A R K has been most welcome, appreciated and added more fuel to our fire. We're looking forward to working together, and can't wait to unleash the album.”
Hark will enter Monnow Valley Studios in Wales later this summer to record a debut full-length album.
In other news, Jimbob recently completed a new tour poster for the current Red Fang European tour. The poster will be available for sale on his art page in the coming weeks.
