Harem Scarem are Launching their new album 'Thirteen' on Pledge Music!
Canadian melodic rock legends Harem Scarem have launched their new album "Thirteen" on Pledge Music, with a campaign cleverly called "Thirteen Weeks to Thirteen"!
"This is our 13th studio album and our first in 6 years, and we're really excited to share the experience with our fans. Over the next 13 weeks, we're going to bring you inside our recording process, rewarding 'Pledgers' with weekly video updates, special sneak peeks, behind the scenes footage and Q&A sessions where we answer your questions about the album.
The campaign has launched now! Check out the limited edition packages like guitar lessons from Pete, a private listening party for 20 fans at Vespa Studios, and even the custom guitar that Pete used on the album!
So why are we doing this? Well, basically we were out on tour last year and we ran into and reconnected with all of our fans and were actually very pleasantly surprised about the level of interest in the band. It’s been 6 years since our last studio album and we’re feeling rejuvenate and couldn’t be more excited about the new tunes!
We’re about to start recording now and we’re going to bring you inside and show you how we do it.
To get started, week #2 is going to be a question-and-answer with us. So leave your questions in the comments section and will be a recording
video answers to the ones we pick and we’ll see you next week!
Head over to www.pledgemusic.com/HaremScarem and watch our video, check out the packages, and be a part of the making of Thirteen!
Thanks for all the support!

They're already at 67%. I predict it will be complete by the end of the day.

yeah that's fast but I guess I'll wait for the complete product and hit the Jap version

If it's released independently, don't expect any import versions.

They will sign a separate deal for Japan. It will release there as well.

That's for sure. As far as I know, HS is bigger in Japan than US and Canada

 

What 80's / early 90's Hard Rock band Isn't bigger in Japan than over here?! lol

As much as I adore the first two Harem Scarem albums & am pleased the band's met their pledge target, I haven't felt keen on joining in with any of the offers.

To be honest, I am not so sure the upcoming album will be anything exciting, there'll no doubt be a few good songs, maybe even an absolute gem or two.

But that's been the formula Harem Scarem has utilized the past few albums. I'll no doubt end up getting the Japanese pressing.

Yep. They are releasing through a label in Asia, which will have a bonus track, They are also releasing through Frontiers for the European release. No word of a bonus track on that. But, to all Pledgers, we will be getting exclusive tracks, as well. Key word: tracks.

Cool!!

 

 

I think it's kinda lame, but the boys seem to love it. All that matters is the tunes on the disc.

Man... that fucking slays!!! Love it to death!!!

 

:headbanger:

Someone on the FaceTubes said they didn't care for the first two tracks, but liked the other two. After listening to them, I thought, "Is he outta his damn mind?! This sounds like a mix of Mood Swings and Voice of Reason." And I'm loving it.

Exactly! Has that classic vibe down pat. Those harmonies.... those guitars.... them addictive backing vocals..... I can't fucking wait for this!!

 

This is going to be THE disc of 2014.

I think you may be right. The only thing contending with Age Sten Nilsen's Ammunition.

I'd put Crazy Lixx up there also.

    • Pretty solid for what it is, but sadly, no killer track for me. The title track and 'King Of The Dead' and 'Taste Your Tongue' are my favourites, but none of this will be on my 2022 playlist.  
    • All in all it's a pretty decent album. First two songs and the tasty 'Say Farewell' are my picks of the lot, but everything on here's pretty solid. Biggest critique would probably be that it's all pretty similar and one-dimensional. But it's a pretty solid dimension.  
    • I guess this one's okay in places. Some cool metallic riffs here and there but overall not overly exciting. Solid for what it is, and I imagine Sword die-hards will probably dig it. 
    • Yeah, I was reading your list thinking that I was happy for you that you were that invested in your favourite albums this year. The albums in my list are far better than those, lol but I'm not sure I'm quite as passionate about them as you are about your top 10. Not sure, I say, as I will wait until the end of the year to see how my penned thoughts end up.  Anyway, I'm going to check out this VHS Collection thing tomorrow to see what that's all about. Otherwise, of your list, that Iron Allies one must be the curveball of the year, surely. Cannot for the life of me personally see what you see in that, but to each one's own, and glad you dig. 
    • Well I love my top 10 and it was basically impossible separating them. All killer albums imo. 
    • Pretty crazy, what's going on in China at the moment. Thank goodness you'd never see something like that happen in Austra- oh. Uh, as you were. There must be plenty of videos like this out and about at the moment-    
    • Haha, a couple of you guys keeping pretty quiet about changed minds on synthwave, after being pretty vocal about how terrible it is/was? I must say, I never got into the dark synth stuff like Dance With The Dead... more for the fact that I need vocals with the synthwave I really dig. I've actually heard a few dark synth bands this year I've passed on, with vocals, that I wonder if there'd be interest in here? Just gotta try to remember who they were...  As for the best of the year, not sure what to make of this year. There's an absolute tonne of good to very good albums, but when I look at the top end I'm not exactly blown away by any amazing albums. Good ones, and a lot of really excellent songs this year... but my highest rated album this year is 82%... which is a good album, but nothing looks like even threatening the 90% mark this year, which seems extremely unusual. The best of last year, for instance, seems a lot better than the best of this year. Still, I can't complain as there's been a lot of good music... just not as many great entire albums. 
    • Another band ruined by frontiers.
    • Yeah, sad news. Even though she was a quiet achiever in that group with Stevie getting most of the attention, she sings Lead on two of my favourite "Fleetwood Mac" tracks. "Little Lies" is a Killer. R.I.P.
