Adam Hattaway and The Haunters Unveil New Album 'Bug Eyes'

Adam Hattaway and The Haunters Unveil New Album 'Bug Eyes'

If you don't know yet that Adam Hattaway is a man of action, Bug Eyes — the new album from the Ōtautahi rock 'n' roll tunesmith and his powerhouse group The Haunters — will get you right up to speed. The fifth studio record in four years from the prolific Cantabrian crew, Bug Eyes is a sprawling twelve song opus, bundling together soul-powered roots rock, reflective crooning balladry, cheeky moments of unabashed braggadocio, touches of summer friendly reggae / ska and even a 'Disco Surprise' into one joyfully diverse package. All served up with considerable charm and heart-on-sleeve energy, the seasoned veterans of the stage will deservedly be celebrating their latest record with shows throughout Australasia this month and next. Don't miss Adam Hattaway & the Haunters bringing the boogie tonight at Tāmaki Makaurau's The Wine Cellar...

"We have a deep, intense need. And that need is to play reggae. OK maybe not. Or is it? I dunno. Or maybe it's disco. I dunno. All I know is the people have spoken and we know what they want to dance to. I think."
