Hark 2010 - 2017

After seven years of hard work, commitment, sweat and toil, and of course some irreplaceably great times together - we’re glad to share with you that Hark has now come to it’s logical and final conclusion. While we’re immensely proud of ‘Machinations’ and everything that we’ve achieved since it’s release this year, we collectively feel that this is the furthest point that we can take this band. From releasing the ‘Mythopoeia’ 7” along with our first show at M...orrowfest in 2012, through to touring with Clutch and shortly after releasing ’Crystalline’ in 2014, and throughout all subsequent tours and lineup changes, it’s fair to say that each member has been lucky enough to take everything that they wanted from being in this band. While we respect any outsider or fan/supporter who might question this decision, let’s just say that being in a band isn’t always the easiest of endeavours. External, personal situations, interpersonal dynamics and personalities, fatigue on/of the road, maintaining relationships and family commitments, weaving in and out of the pitfalls of the music industry, all the while maintaining creative flow, and personal happiness.…it’s certainly no picnic. Hark was formed with two main reasons, to investigate creating music with new and different people, and to simply tour more. We absolutely achieved all of the above, and are extremely proud of all our achievements. Ending this now will preserve our friendships and our modest legacy with little to no collateral damage. We’d like to thank every good soul and friend that we’ve come across on this journey. Thank you so much to all of our co-conspirators that we’ve worked closely with on the albums, videos and tours, and thank you to all the fans and supporters we’ve picked up along the way. Our merch is still available from our store, so head over and grab the last ‘Machinations’ Silver edition LPs, and remaining T-shirts while you can. This page will remain active, and any future developments from any Hark members will be shared here.

Thank you,


Hark 2017: Jimbob Isaac, Simon Bonwick, Joe Harvatt, Tom Shortt.

Archive: Hark played some of our first shows in 2012 with my old friends KYLESA. Having befriended them in the Taint days, it was great to begin the Hark journey with them. Great people to play and hang out with. Hails to my Savannah friends. RIP Hark, RIP (or just resting?) Kylesa. JBI.

Retrospective: While Hark is no more I’d personally like to show respect to the good times this band had by posting about some of the bands we played with over our 7 year tenure. Hark’s first show was at Morrowfest 2012, a tribute to the hugely missed Johnny Morrow of IRON MONKEY. It was a massive honour for us to play, especially after my old band Taint had played the first tribute show in 2002. I’m personally delighted that IxM are back in their violent new incarnation, which in my view is 1000% Iron Monkey in spirit and intention. Thanks for reading, and enjoy. More again soon. JBI.

Every year I seem to start this introduction by saying what a great one it’s been for music and it’s fair to say that 2017 is no exception! With many of the big hitters releasing albums this year (…
