Harker Release New Single “The Beast Must Die”

“The Beast Must Die” harkens back to the glory days of ’90s fuzzed-out guitar rock, with a bit of ’70s proto-punk thrown in as well. The band itself has dubbed its unique brand of music “EMOGAZE” — a combo of emotional rock and swelling guitar feedback. By eschewing a fundamental element of each genre, Harker have created something all their own.”- Consequence of Sound

Brighton, UK punk rock powerhouse HARKER are back with a new single “The Beast Must Die.”

The track appears on the band’s upcoming LP “Axiom” out April 23rd on Wiretap Records, Disconnect Disconnect Records, Shield Recordings, Fixing A Whole Records.

“The Beast Must Die’ is based on the idea of ‘Mono-consciousness’ by English writer Colin Wilson – as a philosopher, Wilsons writing was heavily focused on striving to live with a heightened sense of meaning and avoiding a closed mindset. This track is a study of characters with a lack of empathy and spirituality, in the end leading to apathy for existence. ‘Mono-consciousness’ is a beast that lurks inside, and needs to be hunted before it takes control of of us.”- Mark Boniface (singer/guitarist)
