No matter if you're hippie, hipster, audiophile music lover, or simply admirer of hand-made guitar music – the sound of Radio Haze lingers and leaves its own distinct footprints on the landscape of rock music. The 3-piece from Abensberg (Germany) represents timeless haze-rock with psychedelic bluenotes and a pocket full of soul.
Formed as studio project in 2007 by Philipp Janoske (guitar/vocals) and the two brothers Robert Hubi Hofmann (bass/vocals) and Michael Air Hofmann (drums/vocals), Radio Haze released their first EP 'Vitamin R' (2007) and the first LP 'Mycelium' (2009) growing their roots, but since their second LP 'The Growth' (2010) they have also grown as a touring band still on their way to place a spark in every rock 'n' roll-lover’s heart.
To confirm their variety and to meet demands to play unplugged shows in smaller venues they even trip into psychedelic acoustic spheres and record 'The Psychoustic Sessions' EP (2012) which is solely available as an affectionately designed 10-inch vinyl package with paintings to each song.
The 'Momentum' LP (2014) deals with the process of getting older, but sharing stages with legends like ZZ Top, Uriah Heep, Nazareth, Ten Years After, Manfred Mann's Earth Band, or newcomers like Graveyard, The Brew, Wucan, and Dead Lord showed them that you're never too old to rock and roll.
'The Psychoustic Sessions II' (2016) continues from where the sold-out precursor stopped: four songs from the last LP re-arranged as psychedelic unplugged tunes drowned in space and time plus one brand-new song exclusively composed for this release. The same year they even released a skateboard video entitled 'Before The Haze' showcasing their music and love for the scene they've been an active part of before starting the band.
After celebrating their tenth anniversary in 2017, Radio Haze are now ready for a new chapter, but sometimes life puts the most unpredictable obstacles in one's way that one has to overcome somehow. The band and its members also had to struggle with personal issues and other circumstances during the last years, hence their fourth LP deals with this particular topic and therefore is called 'Mountains' (2018).
The trilogy has been completed by releasing 'The Psychoustic Sessions III' (2019) and now their fifth magnum opus called 'Strangers' (2021), which was recorded during 2020’s Corona Crisis and deals with topics of personal and social alienation, will be released on October 29, 2021 via Slash Zero Records coming in a 48-page photobook including LP and CD with analog pictures by the German street-photographer Ludwig Van Borkum.
