SHAMAN'S HARVEST ANNOUNCES NEW STUDIO ALBUM
'REBELATOR' OUT ON MARCH 11, 2022 VIA MASCOT RECORDS
"This was the hardest record we've ever made, on every level," says Nathan Hunt, referring to Shaman's Harvest's seventh LP.
The storyline seems obvious: The Missouri hard-rockers assembled this project during a global pandemic that debilitated the entire music industry. "Hard" has kinda been universal lately. But the road to Rebelator was even rockier than the band expected: natural disasters, logistical nightmares, an extreme case of collective writer's block.
Luckily, they had time on their side. After a couple grueling years of touring behind their last album, 2017's Red Hands Black Deeds, Shaman's Harvest were creatively and personally drained.
So founding members Hunt and Hamler, along with guitarist Derrick Shipp and drummer Adam Zemanek—hit the reset button hard, clearing out six months for demo construction at their Jefferson City rehearsal space. This meticulousness marked a distinct change from their usual methodology—instead of slapping together outlines before entering the studio, they treated their first takes with a new level of sensitivity, fleshing out the pieces until they knew them intimately.
This new track sets the tone for what’s to come. A new album that unequivocally captures a band looking forward, not repeating their creative past.
