Hailing from the southwestern region of The Netherlands, HAWSER is gearing up for their sophomore full-length release. The album, entitled “TOUGH LOVE” will be available on May 3rd via Farewell Records. Today, the first single ‘In Harmony’ has been released along with a video on the band’s YouTube channel. The video showcases some of Rotterdam’s most iconic parts, the city HAWSER considers their hometown. “TOUGH LOVE” takes HAWSER’s blend of uncompromising groovy hardcore to the next level, infused with their authentic heavy twist. New track ‘In Harmony’ embodies just that, and showcases the band’s incontrovertible growth. Listen below and scroll down to see their upcoming live shows.

Vocalist Stijn van ’t Land commented:

“Two new guitarists and three years of personal and plural growth reflects in TOUGH LOVE. We were teens when this band started and now we’re adults, and it resonates, lyrically and musically,”

Pre-orders for “TOUGH LOVE” are now live via Farewell Records. The album is available on colored 12” vinyl along with various merch bundles.


‘They say every dog will have it’s day one day
Well I’d wait for years if you had your say in this play
But I’m sorry babe, you always stood in my way
I cut the cord, I had to do this for me and

I’ve come so far and I’ve lost my way
Amongst promises you’d always break
How dare you think I’d forever stay
When in one place you’d remain

How far can one man go?
To suffer the path and be left with no
Name, face, place to call home
Swallowed by lust, I suffer alone

Bite back, take back control
Took everything and came back for more
Sing along to the songs of love lost
March on to the beat of love lost

So who am I to blame?
Who am I to mourn?
Took all that I owed
And now you’ve settled the score
Divided we fall and now we turn to dust
In harmony we howl the cries of love lost

In harmony we howl the cries of love lost
The hymns of the damned we sing forevermore
You gave it all that you had and now you pay the price
Left empty handed out the back door’
