Manchester based band THE HARA have taken the UK live scene by storm with festival performances at Reading & Leeds (main stage), Download, Tramlines, Slam Dunk, Neighbourhood, TRNSMT, The Great Escape, Truck, Kendall Calling, Y Not, Bingley, 110, Live at Leeds and more. This summer the trio played Rock for People in the Czech Republic and headed out on their first European tour with American artist Sueco which has since seen significant fan support from Germany, Czech Republic, Netherlands and other parts of Europe and America, this after completing many UK headline tours, their 2022 spring tour covering 17 cities and towns.

With DSP editorial support, and radio plays on BBC R1, Kerrang and European stations their genre fluid sound sees them continue to break new ground in the alternative rock scene. Next their debut album SURVIVAL MODE is primed for March 2023. This hard-working ethos has tied the band and their journey together since they started making music. Before the pandemic they toured high schools and colleges in the UK and Ireland for eighteen months with more than 400 performances and during lockdown they focused daily on social media and virtual performances.
