Sharp melodies layer heart-pumping pulses and droning beats. THE OLD HAUNTS are raw and rhythmic punk rock in the Northwest traditon of THE WIPERS, DEAD MOON and FRENCHIE AND THE GERMAN GIRLS.

THE OLD HAUNTS are a trio from Olympia, WA composed of Craig (SERUM GRAYS), Scott (TWO TON BOA, THE SEDAN) and Danny (THE SEDAN, ENEMYMINE, MOCKET).

"Fallow Field" is their first full-length and features a 60s-influenced production with enough of that basement party sound to sustain the energy.

With vocals similar to RICHARD HELL, lyrics that illustrate the feeling of winter in the Northwest, along with melodic bass lines, sparse drums and jagged, icy guitars, they reconstruct the Northwest punk sound and make it their own.

"First Field" features appearances by Chris Sutton (DUB NARCOTIC SOUND SYSTEM) und Natalie Cox (THE REAGAN YEARS).
