Adam Hattaway and the Haunters (NZ) 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 Christchurch, New Zealand 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.
After releasing their debut alternative-indie album in 2018 'All Dat Love' the Haunters quickly took to festival stages around Aotearoa. 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 'Bug Eyes' on November 4th and making their debut appearance across the ditch.
