The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer are relentless touring artists known for their high-energy, sweaty, dance-floor-boogying performances. Framed by psychedelic landscapes and world-ending jams, The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer ignite the gritty, blues-rock grooves they have been recognized for by adding drummer John Raham (The Be Good Tanyas) and keyboardist Geoff Hilhorst (The Deep Dark Woods) into the melting pot as well as the golden voices of Dawn Pemberton, Andrina Turenne, Alexa Dirks (Begonia), Ben Rogers, Khari Wendell McClelland, Erik Nielsen and Ricardo Khayatte. Add equal parts soulful, sweaty vocals, and biting guitar and you have an album perfect for any doomsday date night.
Check out “Pretty Please” by The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer, the latest release off of their new album, Live At The King Eddy. Driven by Shawn Hall’s supercharged harmonica and barn burning vocals, this live cut pounds like a diesel engine down a mountain pass. As displayed in the video, The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer go all-in, setting the stage ablaze with this stomping boogie-woogie.
“This live version of the band is a much-needed salve for the soul, and – as if it were needed – a mouthwatering reminder of the ecstatic collective experiences we’ve so badly missed – yet, one day soon, will be able to revel in once more. Together.”
