The roots of HAZELAND go back a decade when bassist/singer/songwriter Mike Hayes teamed up with some of the best musicians in Dallas to create an eclectic, progressive, and multi-genre blend of heavy groove rock. After six years of playing shows throughout the region and releasing two studio albums the band decided to take an indefinite hiatus to pursue other musical endeavors. It has been a long journey and HAZELAND is back. The current line-up features Mike Hayes on bass guitar and vocals, Pete Franco on Guitars, Mel Stock on Vocals and Colt Bois on Percussion. “If we stay true to ourselves and continue writing about what drives us, the rest will continue to fall into place. This art is our passion" states Hayes. HAZELAND has established its presence playing alongside several premier groups. “We are very proud of our accomplishments in the short time the group has been back”, says Mike. Hayes and company have shared the stage with HELL YEAH, HED PE, DROWNING POOL, DAYS OF THE NEW, ANCHORED, A NEW REVOLUTION, HURT, SMILE EMPTY SOUL, BURN HALO, TRUST COMPANY, POWERMAN 5000, AND SPINESHANK among many other talented groups. Their progressive and multi genre style has been sought after by venues and management alike. With several decades of collective musical experience in the current HAZELAND line-up, this group of lifelong friends look forward to the future and will continue creating it's unique brand of music for years to come.
