Despite building their reputation as a progressive rock band, Haze have always drawn on a wide variety of influences, ranging from pop, rock, folk, metal, meandering psychedelic jams to tightly structured prog epics. Formed in Sheffield in the late 1970s by brothers Chris & Paul McMahon, they established their reputation as one of the hardest working underground bands of the ‘80s. Despite disbanding in 1988, the band reformed ten years later and have continued to perform regularly ever since, including weekly live-streamed concerts during Lockdown.
Their latest studio album, Back to the Bones, is probably their heaviest-sounding release and follows a definite back to their roots direction. It’s also their fastest-selling album to date, proving that Haze’s legendary reputation is richly deserved.
