A New Year Approaches

Hello everyone.

I hope you had a positive and refreshing solstice. Sol has returned and guides us toward a new year yet again.

We've reduced the price of the Fragments of a Fallen Star and Crooked Mouth cassettes by 25% (find them here) in an attempt to raise some money towards the recordings of the next Harrow album. We'll be demoing the material next week and are very excited about it. There has also been talk of a small show in Metchosin at which we would debut this new material.

The as-yet-untitled album will be released by Shadow of the Stone on cassette and we are looking for label support to help us release it on other formats. No release date is set yet, but we will do our best to not let the wait be as long as it was for Fragments.

There is talk of at least two other tapes that Shadow of the Stone will be releasing before year's end, but they will be revealed later as things progress.

Updates on all of these things will come in their own time.

Unfortunately the printing of t-shirts in cancelled for now due to problems with the printer. They will most likely be postponed until we begin to play live more regularly once again.

December Update

Hello, everyone,
It has been a long while since the last update; life has got the better of us it seems.  There have been plenty of developments over the past month to discuss.

Harrow Lineup
Metchosin 2013

Harrow has gone through a few lineup changes since our summer hiatus. Firstly, Kat Mason has joined us on bass for our Autumn performances. More recently we have been joined by Alexia Horozian. Alexia will be playing violin and keyboards. We are very excited for what her contribution will bring to our approach. Her presence makes us a four-piece for the first time. Currently, we are engaged in writing our next album, which we hope to record early in the New Year. Not much more can be said at the moment besides the fact that we all agree this new material is the best the band has ever produced.

Live performance will be sparse or non-existent for the next few months, but our first appearance in America may be coming soon, more on that as it happens.

Crooked Mouth cassette

Crooked Mouth - available at
The Crooked Mouth full length has been given a professional release by Preposterous Creations from France. This is the solo work of Ian from Harrow, the album contains 40 minutes of wyrd folk music inspired by the desolate wilderness of northern British Columbia. We have copies available in our store now! 

I’ve dug up the languishing Harrow Soundcloud page and used it to post some obscure and unreleased recordings, including a recording of a new song captured live on Denman Island. It will continue to be a place for digital oddities while the Bandcamp page will remain focused on full albums.

New Walden EP
Harrow's drummer, Jacob, has released a new EP of experimental cascadian blackened sound with his solo project. It is available for free download here:

Until next time, we wish you a warm and happy Yuletide, we will see you when the days begin to brighten, keep the homefires burning!
