Official press release:

Brutal Panda Records is proud to announce that Pacific Northwest rock crew Harkonen will reunite to play three exclusive East Coast shows this June. These special events are a series of Brutal Panda label showcases that also include The Atlas Moth and Whores on all dates. The shows will take place, starting June 14th, in Boston, Brooklyn and Philadelphia, with the Brooklyn show being a part of the Northside Festival. Each show will also feature a special guest on the bill including Zozobra, Ladder Devils and one to be announced. The complete listing of dates is available below.

Harkonen guitarist/vocalist Ben Verellen had this to say about the band's first East Coast shows in almost a decade:

"The last time Harkonen was on the east coast, I think Matt had a broken wrist, so Casey and I toured out with a CD of matt playing drums through a bunch of amps. Last time Harkonen tried to fly anywhere to do a show, the plane had a malfunction and almost went down. It's been about 10 years since all that and I'm hoping the curse has lifted. Bout to find out!"


Additionally, a limited new vinyl repress of Harkonen's seminal album Shake Harder Boy will be pressed exclusively for these shows.
