TAKEN FROM NEW EP ‘WE ALL WEAR BLACK’ RELEASED 1ST APRIL VIA SCRUFF OF THE NECK RECORDS
CATCH THE BAND ON THEIR UK HEADLINE TOUR THIS APRIL – TICKETS ON SALE NOW!
A euphoric and emotional track with arena-filling tendencies and earnest and profound lyrics, ‘Domino’ shines a light upon the dark places one’s mind can sometimes travel to, and acts as a stark reminder that you’re not alone
Explaining the track in more detail, lead singer Josh Taylor says, “’Domino’ touches on a dark place that many of us are close to with an uplifting chorus reminding us to stay strong. Through our music, if we can help just one person escape this, and them knowing they aren’t alone, that is what this song is about.”
The new song also comes with the news of The Hara’s new 6-track EP, ‘We All Wear Black’ due for release on 1st April 2022 via Manchester-based label Scruff Of The Neck. On the same day the trio will also embark on a mammoth 16-date tour across the UK, visiting cities such as London, Manchester, Glasgow and Bristol.
Looking ahead to summer, the band have already been booked again to play Download Festival, following on from their triumphant appearance at the pilot event in 2021. They will also appear at 2000trees in Cheltenham, with many more festivals still to be announced.
The new music follows on from The Hara’s previous singles ‘Fool & The Thief’ and ‘Die In The City’, which saw praise from Gemma Bradley on BBC Radio 1. The trio consisting of; Josh Taylor (frontman), Zack Breen (guitar) and Jack Kennedy (drums), have already been playlisted on Spotify, Apple Music, Amazon Music and Deezer as their ‘genre fluid’ sound sees them continue to break new ground sonically. This hybrid of sounds has also warranted them to be featured across airwaves and column inches, with notable acclaim from BBC Introducing, Kerrang!, Dork, Amazing Radio and Manchester Evening News.
Last year the Manchester band appeared at festivals up and down the country, winning over new fans at the Download Festival Pilot, opening the main stage at Reading and Leeds and making noise at TRNSMT, Tramlines, Neighbourhood Weekender and Slam Dunk too.
Explaining the band’s mantra, Josh says, “We want to show everyone that despite it all, despite what the statistics say, despite what people say or any of that social media acceptance bullsh*t, it really doesn’t matter. Thousands of people will reject you for being different but there are 10 times over that amount who will accept you and who are feeling just like you. If people can become a part of such a glorious resistance through our music, then that’s our mission.”
‘Domino’ is available to stream now. The We All Wear Black EP will be released on 1st April via Scruff Of The Neck Records. The Hara embark on a headline UK tour this April – tickets are available here.
