Goth-rockers Hana Piranha release their explosive new album, Waiting To Burn, out now via Fourglove Records.
The album is full of fast-burning energy from the offset. Each track on the album overflows with raucous guitar riffs, pounding drum beats and snarling vocals from leading anti-heroine Hana Maria (violin/vox). Hana’s vocal pierces through the fierce musicality effortlessly, sounding akin to the likes of Juliette Lewis or Garbage’s Shirley Manson. Hana Piranha are a band that breach genre with their use of traditionally classical instrumentation, such as violin and harp, in a hard rock setting. Hana’s razor sharp violin licks are undeniably impressive, enabling that band to create a sound that is both dark and tantalising. Talking about the album, Hana elaborates “Waiting To Burn conceptually follows the story of a witch being burned at the stake. It ties into common themes explored in previous albums - of being both the architect and victim of your own downfall.”
Hana Piranha formed as a result of a chance meeting in a pub between Hana and Jim Beck (guitar/vocals). Daniel Tompkins (bass) joined later through sheer persistence and soon afterwards, Andrew Lane (drums) stumbled in and never left. Hana has performed at a number of prestigious venues including Wembley Arena, The O2, Koko and the Royal Festive Hall. She has also performed at numerous festivals including Truck Festival and Beautiful Days as well as supporting the likes of Anna Calvi. With Waiting To Burn, Hana Piranha are excited to share their dangerously beautiful blend over relentless rock to the world.
Waiting To Burn is out now via Fourglove Records.
