Skip to tour details

Based in Christchurch, Adam Hattaway and the Haunters are known for their electrifying live performances. Adam Hattaway (The Eastern, Wurld Series) is a born frontman, he performs alongside three “Haunters”; Elmore Jones, Liam Quinn, and Ryan Fisherman. 

‘Wasting Our Time’ is an anti-romance anthem. The tormented lyrics “love and affection is wasting our time” are belted out by Adam, while the rest of the band sing along over guitar-heavy grooves. 

The song is the lead single from their upcoming album Woolston, Texas, which is due for release 2021. Adam describes the album as “songs inspired by dreams, love, mental health, gyms, and rats.”

After a string of festival spots at Electric Avenue, Nostalgia, and The Others Way, and releasing fuzz-laden album Crying Lessons, (produced by the acclaimed Delaney Davidson), the band now prepare for a 12-date nationwide tour.
