Press release from Frontiers Music:

 

BREAKING NEWS: HAREM SCAREM'S HOMECOMING SHOW AT THE PHOENIX CONCERT THEATRE IN TORONTO TO BE RELEASED ON 2CD/DVD & BLU-RAY IN DECEMBER ON FRONTIERS

Frontiers Music Srl, is pleased to announce the upcoming live release by the Canadian rock group HAREM SCAREM, entitled LIVE AT THE PHOENIX on December 4th.

Available in 2CD/DVD, Blu-ray and Digital formats, this new release, marks the first proper live album recorded by Harem Scarem in front of their “home” audience. Singer Harry Hess explains, “Canada is where we started touring all those years ago and to be able to invite our friends, family and fans to this show was cool."

Recorded live on Saturday July 11th, 2015 at the Phoenix Concert Theatre in Toronto, this happened to be the perfect time and venue for the band to capture live recordings of numerous songs from their latest record "Thirteen" and also to revisit their classic early material. It was an honest and raw performance showcasing the repertoire of a band which is at the top of their game.

“It wasn't easy coming up with this set list but I think we got to all the important stuff plus it's always fun to play the new material that you haven't been playing for 20 years. It is definitely the most extensive live recording and video that we have ever done and the quality of both the video and audio are by far the best of anything we have ever done,” says Harry.

For fans around the world that were not able to see Harem Scarem on their "Thirteen" tour, this special Blu Ray/DVD and double audio cd is a must!!

Harem Scarem is barely known by most Canadians and unless somebody is skating and scoring goals, people don't get too excited around here.

 

I see they have Slowly Slipping Away as a track. Back in 2007/8 before they released Hope they played their 'last' Canadian gig in Toronto. The fans screamed out for them to play Slowly Slipping Away, they got through half the song and abandoned it, claiming they hadn't played it in over 10 years. I was disappointed since to me the debut was their best one and they totally ignored it and even claimed to have forgotten it.

 

I personally hate live cd's, I'm just anxiously waiting for another studio release.

Yep, love the band and can't wait for the next studio album, but I have as much chance of hearing this as a new Miley Cyrus album.

Didn't they got a few songs on that teen tv-show Degrassi High long time ago (in the end of the eigthies I believe). That show must have been canadian. But I imagine that was not a hit in Canada. It was fairly big in Sweden. Quite hilarious show back in the days. ;)

Really? The show was a hit in Sweden? That's so random. I never watched it, as I was only two when it first aired, but the series was revived in 2001 as Degrassi: The Next Generation. And that's where Aubrey Graham (the rapper better known as Drake) got his start.

Is that a title used in a lot of different countries? We've had a Degrassi (Junior?) High here in Australia for an eternity too. I remember it from back in the 80's when I used to watch it as a tiny kid because it actually starred a few actors who went on to be genuine Aussie celebrities in that era.

 

Like Karpetface says about the one in Canada, there was also a 'New Generation' too which still airs to this very day.

Huh. Possibly. It started with The Kids of Degrassi Street, then went to Degrassi Junior High, then Degrassi High.

    • From Escape Music: KEYS has just completed their second album, “The Grand Seduction”.   This all-keyboard band is the brainchild of singer Jake E (Cyhra, Amaranthe and others) and keyboardist Mark Mangold (Touch, Drive, She Said, Michael Bolton, Cher, Paul Rogers and others) with Emanuel Bagge (Sweden’s Got Talent Finalist) on additional vocals and keys, Irwan Fabrien (noted keyboard guitar sound designer) with help of drum gurus Alex Landenburg (Kamelot, Cyhra and others).   Featuring live performances with three keyboardists and a huge battery of keyboards, this ambitious band brings keyboard and instrumental prowess to new heights while playing songs that run the gamut from scathing progressive melodic forays to catchy and melodic rock anthems …and Jake’s award-winning voice (Burrn Vocalist of the year 2020).   Previous KEYS album also featured guest keyboard additions by Charlie Calv of Angel and others.   Though songs are first and foremost, this band shows the versatility of keyboards in this day and age.  These artfully crafted songs are ripe with scathing synth, organ and “guitar” pyrotechnics, dazzling time signatures and drumming, bombastic choruses and “guitar” riffs (played on keyboards with the now available plug in’s that perfectly emulate guitars).  As Mark and Jake are first and foremost award winning songwriters, they never lose sight of the composition and melodies, though couched in the very signature and hard to pigeon hole sound (isn’t that the whole point?) of this band and Jake's 4 octave vocal range.   Release Date: 19th July 2024 CD Catalogue No: ESM389   CD Track List: 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 9:02 2. ALL I NEED  6:49 3. SHINING SAILS  5:51 4. SWITCHBLADE  6:02 5. VORTEX   4:06 6. SKIN AND BONES  6:42 7. TURN TO DUST    4:42 8. CRAZY TOWN   7:43 9. THOUGHT WE HAD FOREVER  6:04 10. THE WORLD IS OURS (Curse the Lies)   4:02   Vinyl Track List: Side A 1. THE GRAND SEDUCTION 6:47 2. ALL I NEED 6:49 3. SHINING SAILS 5:51 4. VORTEX 4:06   Side B 1. SWITCHBLADE 6:02 2. SKIN AND BONES 6:42 3. TURN TO DUST 4:42 4. CRAZY TOWN 7:43   PRODUCED BY MARK MANGOLD AND JAKE E MIXED BY MARK MANGOLD MASTERED BY MAOR APPELBAUM  
    • Lyric video for the new song:    
    • No replies in this thread, really? These guys deserves your recognition, absolutely quality stuff!    
    • Listening to this in a shopping centre with the phone to my ear and it sounds ok. But overall underwhelmed. Bed City were awesome and his vocal we top notch. But I like to think I can disregard that and hear it for what it is. I think it's the Christian stuff that is holding me back. And I dealt with Stryper stuff no problems so I'm trying to figure out why this isn't sitting well I guess times have changed and styper always came off as a bit gimmicky or shticky and kind of fun. It's also 30 years later and I really don't care Bout the Christian messages. They are boring now. Even Stryper aren't as obvious in their lyrics these days. Or maybe it's all just a reminder of the shit Josh did that landed him in jail? Silly to constantly remind people of that. Would prefer just some fun rock music I think.  
    • Nate seems like a legit nice guy too… From his FB page: I just want to thank everyone for such a positive response on the latest announcement! It means the world❤️ I will do my absolute best to honor Cj’s legacy and keep his name alive each show. Hope to see you all soon Best Regards  Nate Peck   And from earlier this year, this lovely pic of him and CJ
