Manchester alt/rock trio The Hara will headline at Manchester Academy 3 on Thursday as their UK tour nears its end.

The 16-date run of gigs comes after The Hara released latest EP We All Wear Black which includes the lead single Domino.

The tour comes ahead of a string of festival dates across the summer including Download Festival, Kendal Calling, 2000Trees and Y Not? Festival.

We All Wear Black was produced by Jason Perry (Don Broco, McFly) and Andy Gannon in Manchester. Its six tracks feature popular cuts Afterlife and Black Soul Ceremony, alongside  Domino and three other hard-hitting alternative rock songs. Producer Perry will also be at the helm for The Hara’s debut album, which is expected in the latter half of 2022.

Explaining the band’s mantra, frontman Josh Taylor says: “We want to show everyone that despite it all, despite what the statistics say, despite what people say or any of that social media acceptance bullsh*t, it really doesn’t matter. Thousands of people will reject you for being different but there are 10 times over that amount who will accept you and who are feeling just like you. If people can become a part of such a glorious resistance through our music, then that’s our mission.”

Later this year, The Hara are set to release a live album recorded at Manchester’s Satan’s Hollow – live from the exclusive Domino release show.
