Brighton indie-punk band Harker revealed details of their ‘Cassette Club’ series. A collection of tape releases which will be made available exclusively to members of their mailing list as a free reward for their continued support.
The first edition of their ‘Cassette Club’ series features a live session recorded at Kesbri Studios in Bolton during their February tour with The Doublecross. It offers fans a chance to hear demos of brand new material previously unreleased and earmarked for their debut album.
“We recorded a live session in February while on tour with our friend Jon from The Doublecross and we wanted to do something fun with it. Cassette tapes often get treated as the poor relation to vinyl, but I think there’s something really great about them. Visually you can do some really interesting things and they are relatively cheap to produce when compared with vinyl which means we are able to do things like this" explained vocalist/guitarist Mark Boniface
The tapes will be given away completely free to a selection of fans, chosen at random on Sunday 9th April. While one lucky fan will also win an extended bundle including a Harker t-shirt and a copy of their ‘Still Seething / Such Grace' cassette tape which also contains covers of The Replacements & Hot Water Music.
Harker will be on tour throughout the coming months with a series of UK tour dates including appearances at Brighton's Washed Out Festival and Lincoln's Kind Festival.
