Framed by psychedelic landscapes and world-ending jam-outs, Harpoonist & the Axe Murderer are relentless touring artists known for their high-energy, sweaty, dance-floor-boogying performances. Their music ignites gritty, blues-rock grooves and adds equal parts soulful, sweaty vocals and biting guitar to create a music experience perfect for any doomsday date-night.
Their 2014 album, A Real Fine Mess, received considerable recognition, including a Blues Album of the Year Juno nomination (2014) and win for the Blues Album of the Year and Alternative Album of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards (2015). Following this success, they released Apocalypstick in 2017. Experience this duo live and you can expect a “mashup of good-times bar blues, old-fashioned Chuck Berry-style rock and roll and Talking Heads-like funk breakdowns” (NOW Magazine).
