Adam Hattaway Adam Hattaway & The Haunters are back with the second single ‘The Magician’ from their forthcoming album ‘Bug Eyes’. Representing the central sound of the album in terms of it’s melodic simplicity and groove. The song is about someone who feels like they have lost everything, they want to push through
but don’t know if they can.

”The Magician tires of his tricks and dies.
They been saying I might never walk again. Don’t wanna start again.”

Lose your faith, lose your strength, lose your mind to another four on the floor,
Haunters fuzzy, funk fest!

As well as today’s single release, Adam Hattaway & the Haunters have announced their album release tour including their first shows across the ditch.

Adam Hattaway & The Haunters

Adam Hattaway and the Haunters are initiating a new generation into the temple of alt-rock’n’roll. As a seasoned touring band with four studio albums, A.H. explore personal themes while weaving in universal motifs – star crossed lovers, losers, and lonesome travellers.

Forever shaking hands with heartache, Adam Hattaway lives close to the bone. From his home in Ōtautahi, he has earned an international reputation for sweltering hooks, high-kicks, and raw, emotional narrative. A born frontman, he deftly marries 60’s swagger with 21st century sensitivity.

The Haunters are Adam Hattaway (The Eastern, Wurld Series), Elmore Jones (3000AD, Katie Thompson), Liam Quinn, Tess Liautaud, Thomas Isbister (Deep Water Creek, No Broadcast) and Holdyn Skinner.

After releasing their debut alternative-indie album in 2018 ‘All Dat Love’ the Haunters quickly took to festival stages around Aotearoa, playing Nostalgia, The Great Kiwi Beer Festival, Nest Fest & The South Island Wine & Food Festival.

The Haunters released their second album ‘Crying Lessons’ produced by Delaney Davidson. The 60’s R&B inspired album reached number 7 on the official New Zealand album charts and had their single ‘Heartbreak Heart’ play on the Netflix TV series ‘The Sinner’.

In 2021 the alternative- rock and roll scorcher, ‘Woolston, Texas’ was released to rave reviews. All the while, the band continued to keep moving with what has basically been their ‘never ending tour’.

The stripped down, roots-country, rock ‘n’ roll ,double album, ‘Rooster’, released in November ’21, broke into the international market being playlisted on more than 40 US radio stations and hitting number 16 on the New Zealand album charts.

Since, Hattaway has joined Marlon Williams on stage, produced several albums including Al Park’s ‘Pony’ as well as Anthea Struthers’ forthcoming debut album, and appeared in the 2021 Going Global Summit.

Fresh out of the studio, Adam Hattaway & The Haunters are releasing their 5th album on November 4th. ”Hattaway is just as neurotic and depressed as the last record, only this time he wants to dance”…
