SHARE CONTEMPLATIVE ROCK BALLAD ‘DIED IN MY TWENTIES’
OUT NOW VIA SCRUFF OF THE NECK RECORDS
TAKEN FROM DEBUT ALBUM ‘SURVIVAL MODE’ – LANDING 3RD MARCH
CATCH THE BAND ON TOUR IN APRIL!
Viral Manchester trio THE HARA have shared their first new music of 2023 with contemplative rock ballad ‘Died In My Twenties’ out now via Scruff Of The Neck Records
Penned pensively, it takes a magnifying glass to the trappings of being in a band and all of the negative effects that come with it, building up into an epic crescendo. Explaining the track in more detail the band say, “Being in a band, or just choosing music to pursue as a career in general is probably one of the most difficult things to do and especially trying to navigate that with family and personal relationships, a lot of sacrifices are made and it’s easy to lose yourself in the pursuit of success. I think a part of you dies and that can be hard to accept.”
‘Died In My Twenties’ is another taste of the trio’s debut album ‘Survival Mode’ due for release on 3rd March 2023 via Scruff Of The Neck Records, and produced by Jason Perry (Don Broco, McFly). To celebrate the release THE HARA will visit Sheffield, Glasgow, Newcastle, Bristol, London, Birmingham and their hometown Manchester on a string of headline dates in April – please get in touch for any guest list enquiries.
Following on from ‘ROCKSTAR’ which interrogates the perception of the rockstar lifestyle and ‘Talk To The Manager’ which tackles fakery within the music industry and navigating the notoriously difficult landscape starting out, these early album teasers are a good indication of why the band have won over so many new fans at their epic live shows and received extensive support from BBC Radio 1‘s Nels Hylton and Alyx Holcombe.
THE HARA have taken the UK by storm in the past 12 months with major UK festival performances at Reading & Leeds Festivals (Main Stage), Download and Tramlines. Gemma Bradley gave the band their break at BBC Radio 1, whilst they 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. Following the release of ‘ROCKSTAR’ the trio also headed out on the road with Sueco supporting him on his European tour.
And it all boils down to the hard-working and focussed ethos that has tied the band and their journey together since they started making music. Explaining the band’s mantra, frontman Josh Taylor 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.”
‘Died In My Twenties’ is out now via Scruff Of The Neck Records. THE HARA will release their debut album ‘Survival Mode’ on 3rd March 2023.
