AUDIO: First Listen - 'Rewrite Our Lives' by Ha Ha Tonka

Related: Rewrite Our Lives, Ha Ha Tonka

Ha Ha Tonka is an unmistakable indie-meets-Southern rock band comprised of Brett Anderson, Lennon Bone, Lucas Long and Brian Roberts. Sitting at the crossroads of Americana and indie- where Alabama meets Arcade Fire- the quartet are primed for the release of their highly anticipated fourth full-length album, Lessons, on September 24th via Bloodshot Records. The album was recorded at Bright Eyes' ARC Studios in Omaha, Nebraska and in NYC with producers Dan Molad (Lucius) and The Ryantist.



With the previously revealed album title track described by ELLE as "a steady, rhythmic rocker", the band has just shared new album track "Rewrite Our Lives" with Paste Magazine. An upbeat, energetic cut containing a runaway chorus & an atmospheric, massive sound akin to that of the great American railroad dream, you can hear "Rewrite Our Lives" below!



Sonically, Lessons marks a departure from Ha Ha Tonka's more stripped down style to one that is filled with lush instrumentation. As the title implies, the inspiration behind Lessons stems from life's biggest ones. Motivated by late illustrator and renowned children's author Maurice Sendak's musings on the creative process and what it means to be an artist, the band captured this message and the fragile, oft-irrational comedy of life in sonic form.



Ha Ha Tonka has become renowned for its authentic, effortless brand of indie-Americana, seamlessly fusing the traditional with modern, contemporary elements. Having played alongside the likes of Old 97s, Murder By Death, Someone Still Loves You, Boris Yeltsin & more, Ha Ha Tonka will take to the road this fall on a full North American tour.
