Independent punk rock band Harker debuted the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for its single ‘The Beast Must Die’ Friday. The song is featured in the band’s forthcoming album Axiom, which is scheduled for release April 23 through Wiretap Records. It will release through Disconnect Disconnect Records, Shield Recordings, and Fixing a Whole Records overseas.
The video for ‘The Beast Must Die’ is a simple presentation. It features two people demolishing a boom box through the use of a sledgehammer and baseball bat as the song plays over the simple visuals. The visuals are perhaps an artistic way to translate the theme behind the song’s lyrical content.
Front man Mark Boniface addressed the song’s lyrical theme during a recent interview.
“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,” said Boniface. “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 us.”
The musical arrangement that accompanies the song’s lyrical content is just as simple in its approach as that taken to the song’s video. It is a garage-punk style work whose fuzzed guitars form its foundation.
