Welsh heavy power-rock trio HARK (Jimbob Isaac (ex TAINT) - Guitar, Vocals Nikolai Ribnikov (ex-WHYTELEAF) – Bass, Simon Bonwick (ex- WHYTELEAF) - Drums) have been announced for a Roadburn Festival 2014 performance. The band will play the festival on Saturday, April 12th at the 013 venue in Tilburg, NL. The Roadburn Festival will see HARK play alongside bands such as ANCIIENTS, CROW BAR, NAPALM DEATH, and OPETH. More information about the Roadburn Festival is available here.

Regarding the performance, front-man Jimbob Isaac said "
HARK are extremely humbled, to be invited to play Roadburn ’14. Having played Roadburn ’08 with TAINT, I know that we’ll experience the best crowd, festival hosts and gig environment that’s out there. It’s an honour to have the chance to bring Hark over, as a new chapter in my musical journey, and as a new collective vision altogether. All three of us are really, really excited to play.
HARK recently 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 27th 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.
