VIDEO OF THE WEEK: SHAMAN'S HARVEST 'BIRD DOG'


Missouri four-piece Shaman’s Harvest are back with their first new track, Bird Dog, in four years. The song comes ahead of their upcoming album which is set to be released later this year.


Shaman’s Harvest have released six albums prior, with a combined 190 million plus streams of the band’s last two Mascot Records albums alone – Red Hands, Black Deeds (2017) and Smokin’ Hearts & Broken Guns (2014). To date, Shaman’s Harvest has sold over 100,000 albums and 415,000 singles. They have toured with a who’s who in Rock, amongst whom are Godsmack, Nickelback, AC/DC, Cheap Trick, Alice In Chains and Seether alongside others.


The Missouri rocker's rocker's are; Singer Nathan Hunt, guitarists Josh Hamler and Derrick Shipp, alongside drummer Adam Zemanek — they approached this lead song with the vision to build it out from Hamler's droning guitar, which sprouted into a desert wasteland atmosphere of mouth harp, group percussion and deep, growling vocals. Hunt calls the final result a "weird mixture of things," blending its dust-blown textures with bits of Metallica and Queens of the Stone Age—the perfect backdrop for his almost post-apocalyptic lyrics. He offers, “It's definitely a cinematic thing — if nothing else, it's a colour or just one little scene in my head. In my mind, I was envisioning a lot of these small towns—like a railroad town or a farm town where people don't want to farm anymore. And it just goes to shit, and then you have the opioids come in and everyone becomes a zombie."
