Haulin'ass, italian hardcore since '99.
In 2001 they record the first demo, 6 track and self titled,
sold in 500 copies.
In the second half of 2003 the band’s line-up
changes: the drummer leaves the band so Piè, original first guitarist,
starts to play drums and Gio joins the band as a new guitarist.
this change corresponds a period of settlement and writing of new songs
that highlight a change in the style. The tracks grow tight and fast, on
the road to melodic hardcore, but contaminated by the old school
hardcore anger and attitude.
The new band line-up in 2004
self-produces a new demo, the 7 tracks “Get some stress” ep, that gets
very good reviews and audience feedback. The band has good collaboration
links with the whole alternative italian scene, where most of its gigs
With Indiebox label, the band participates to 3
compilation releases in which also appear A Wilhelm Scream, TSOL, The
Casualties, Rufio and others.
In this 10 year career Haulin'ass
collected almost 250 live exhibitions. Since the debut, the band has
always had a very good feeling with the stage: the live one is the
dimension that most of all reveals its nasty attitude and that in the
years became the performances' brand.
Haulin'ass shared stages with
Strung Out, Born From Pain, Hormonauts, Modena City Ramblers, Crummy
Stuff, De Crew, To Kill, L’invasione degli omini verdi, Skruingers,
Stinking Polecats and many more.
After this long and productive, as
well as “anarchist” path, the band reached the goal of the first
full-lenght album “Towards Which Future”: a three chapter concept album
with 12 tracks, recorded and mixed in spring 2008 at Elfo Studio, and
mastered at Oasis Mastering Studio (Santa Barbara – USA) and produced by
the historical italian hardcore label Vacation House Records, published
by LeParc Music.
