A Preston guitarist is making it big in the rock world as his band’s new single soars to number one.


THE HARA, an alternative/rock band, recently released their latest song ‘Black Soul Ceremony’, the first to be released from the trio in 2021.

Josh Taylor (lead singer), Zack Breen (guitarist) and Jack Kennedy (drummer) have set their sites high this year, following a successful 2020 which saw support for the band from BBC Introducing Lancashire, BBC Sheffield and music streaming service Spotify to name a few.

Josh said: “There comes a point in our life where we must free ourselves from all our vulnerabilities, I think there is a lot of beauty in doing so, just being completely undeniably yourself whether people hate it or love it.

“This song is our dark and twisted way to celebrate the demon inside, our fears and insecurities without being a prisoner to them. Instead, understanding who we can be to be truly free of those voices in our head and to kill the person we were told to be.”

THE HARA were expected to perform their largest headline tour and summer festival appearances which included Reading & Leeds, Download, TRNSMT last year. However, due to the ongoing pandemic these plans were cut short.

2021 will see their return to live music with a packed-out UK wide tour ahead of their much anticipated festival debut performances and more new releases planned for later this year.
