We’ve taken these crazy days of 2020 and have made the best of it with new music and plans for new releases. The next few months will be full of updates!
Our first big announcement is that we are releasing the first in a series of two track EP’s on 7 inch vinyl! Pre-order details are available in our online store. This series was born from the desire to record songs as soon as we write them and experiment with different recording environments. Each EP will be made up of two songs that we record at the same time, and that we feel express a moment in time for us. The entire series will be graced with cover artwork by Joey Metcalf, aka Joegrisly.
The first is called “Mind in the Works” and features the songs “Feeling Whole Again” b/w “Careless Survivor.” These two songs mark the realization of recording drums at Campbell’s Morrell Music in Johnson City, TN. Both songs were recorded in 2020.
We’re excited to announce that our second album entitled Everything is Right Now is officially available on all major streaming platforms alongside our first album. Below are links directly to the album for whichever flavor you choose to stream and it’ll be posted soon on BandCamp as well. Thank you so much to everyone for your continued support and for helping us make this album happen, we’re very proud of it and hope everyone can enjoy it as much as we have enjoyed creating it. Take care!
After much debate, we’ve chosen to ask for a little help getting our next album done. We’ve chosen a studio to record drums in and decided to go with Kurt Ballou to mix our recordings. Although we plan on recording everything ourselves, the cost of using a different studio to get the drum sound we want and of using someone as renowned as Kurt to achieve the mix we’re aiming for is more than we would easily come up with on our own. This fundraising effort is only for the cost of those things. Everything else, including tracking, mastering, and pressing the music on CD and vinyl will come out of our pockets and from whatever we can scrape together playing shows and selling shirts. We humbly ask that you consider contributing. The entire explanation is included on the site, but the bare bones is that $10 will get you a CD copy of the album, while any donation over $18 will get you a CD copy of this new album AND our previous, self titled album. Go over to our Facebook or Instagram page for the link, to read further, and hopefully contribute.
We’ve been hard at work on a new album, which we’ll be recording in May of 2018. Before that we’ll be playing a few shows to work out the kinks of the new material. Check out the ‘SHOWS’ tab to see if we’re coming to a city near you. And if we are not, let us know where you’d like for us to try to visit next time around!
Lots of new show dates posted up in the Shows section including a small run up the East Coast with Bask from Asheville, NC. Come out and see us if you can, we’ll have all of our merch including vinyl available!
We’re very excited to announce that the HAAL online store is officially up with vinyl pre-orders available. This is a pre-order, not a crowd funding of any kind, we just wanted to make these available ahead of time before delivery due to limited quantity. It’ll be pressed on assorted colors and we’ll be unable to determine, specify, or hold specific colors. Estimated shipment is 03/01 but they may very well arrive before then and we’ll ship/notify of pickup as soon as they’re in-hand. We also have our new hoodies, shirts, and stickers available in the store as well, so check it out and pick something up if you can! Free local pickup is offered for the Tri-Cities area.
NYE was a blast and so was 2016 for us as a band. It’s been an odd and rough year for most of the world and we hope that 2017 can bring better days for those. We love you all very much and appreciate your support more than we can possibly express. We’ll be taking a little time off to work on some new music among other things, we’ll update as things progress!
The HAAL online store is live. Head on over, browse around, and pick something up to treat yourself! Hoodies will available starting 01/06.

We’ll have our first run of shirts at the upcoming New Year’s show 12/31 at The Hideaway in Johnson City, TN and should be receiving our run of zip-up hoodies at the beginning of January. Stay tuned for more updates as we have some things in store regarding our Self-Titled album among other things.
