Message From The Band
We have just two more weeks before the start of the Australia New Zealand leg of the ANTHEM world tour. Time feels like it is flying by and soon we will literally be flying down under to do what we love, share music of course. We are going to be traveling all over Australia, but this will be our first time to visit New Zealand. Since the last time we were down under, we have released three new musical projects ANTHEM, The Sound Of Light and Music Made For Humans, so there is a lot of music to catch up on. The new website is solidly in it’s Alpha phase with testing going on everyday to search for bugs, as well there has been a lot of work offline updating content to make sure as much music as possible is up on the site where people can discover it. The whole team has been putting in long hours everyday and into the night to get the site ready to launch, we are really looking forward to sharing the results soon.
Isaac, Taylor and Zac

Photo of window reflection, ANTHEM Tour 2013
Sometimes a simple texture or pattern engages the eye like a this random window blind on a side street while on the ANTHEM Tour in 2013. When was the last time you saw art in a simple object?
Mark Hudson got into the Throwback Thursday spirit today and posted a photo of Hanson captioned, “Here’s a fun throwback..me and young Hanson” on his Facebook page – Mark Hudson Music.
NINETIES pop star Isaac Hanson has issued a warning to his 2014 counterparts Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus to pull their heads in or be left with regrets.
The oldest member of clean-cut band-of-brothers Hanson — who rose to international fame with their 1997 smash hit MMMBop — told the Leader that he “felt bad” for Bieber and Cyrus because of their controversial antics.
Bieber has recently uploaded a photo of his crotch onto social media and Cyrus is becoming increasingly known for her provocative ‘twerking’ dancing.
“On some level or other I feel bad for them,” Isaac, now 33, said.
“I think in the ways those artists are behaving, they will look back and regret some of the stuff they are doing.”
The Tulsa band, comprised of Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson – all now married with children- has received several Grammy nominations, sold more than 16 million albums and have just released a new album, Anthem.
At the time, the pop stars, aged 11, 13 and 16, were likened to the Beatles due to the legions of screaming female fans at their concerts.
But Hanson remained the good boys of pop, keeping a clean image from then to now.
Isaac put out a warning to Bieber and Cyrus that their behaviour could overcome their music.
“As an artist or musician, you want to be remembered for the music you make,” he said.
“Hanson will be associated with MMMBop and long blonde hair, in the same way the Beatles are associated with mop tops and suits.
“What Miley Cyrus and Justin Bieber (are doing), they are ingraining a certain thing with people’s minds and they stand a good chance to regret those things.”
Isaac said the band’s concerts attracted hardcore fans who have been on board since they were 13, to new fans who have just discovered their music — but the “screaming quotient” remained.
“For some reason or another there’s definitely still continues to be a significant screaming quotient at Hanson shows,” he said.
“In some ways, Australian fans are more dedicated and more enthusiastic than some of our most loyal fans in the US.”
