Harpoonist & the Axe MurdererApocalipstick is the follow up to 2014’s A Real Fine Mess, which received a Juno nomination for Blues Album of the Year and won Blues Album of the Year and Alternative Album of the Year at the WCMA’s (2015). Their previous release Checkered Past won the Blues Act of the Year at the SiriusXM Indies (2013). They’ve also had songs featured on television shows such as: CSI, NCIS: New Orleans, The Good Wife, Blue Bloods, and the aptly named TV movie Lizzie Borden Took An Axe. Apocalipstick was mastered by Brian Lucey’s Magic Garden (The Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys, Dr. Dog, Lucinda Williams, The Shins) and produced by John Raham, Shawn “The Harpoonist” Hall, and Matthew “The Axe Murderer” Rogers.
The Harpoonist & The Axe Murderer are relentless touring artists known for their high-energy, sweaty, dance-floor-boogying performances. They have recently toured the UK with St. Paul & The Broken Bones, the EU with Dr. Dog and XIXA and the US with Tinariwen. They have also shared the stage with Taj Mahal, Booker T Jones, Mother Mother, The Sheepdogs, and Serena Ryder and have played their fair share of festivals. The band will be bringing their bed of chaos to Iron Mountain Music Festival and you might even hear their new single Hard On Things.
