WEEKLY PIC

MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

Even when a project starts with a theme, you never really know where the music is going to take you. This week, we have yet another episode in the Real to Reel video series and this time around we are sharing the inspiration behind the new song, Reading Your Mind. Part Beach-boys but all HANSON, Reading Your Mind was inspired by melody and harmony, with the lyrics and story coming later. You can watch the new Episode now, and if you are a Hanson.net member you can also checkout the full Reading Your Mind music video on Hanson.net starting today.

Though we are focused on Against The World and our plans for 2020, we are still traveling a lot to play concerts, and this weekend it’s Minneapolis for Basilica Block Party! If you are in the area don’t be shy, there’s a lot of great music in the line up, and we’re playing too!

By | July 9, 2019

Daily Hive

From $2 admission to a concert by Hanson, there are plenty of exciting things going on at the Calgary Stampede this Tuesday, July 9.

HANSON at the Calgary Stampede 2019

HANSON has announced they will be performing at the Big Four Roadhouse at the Calgary Stampede. Known for their hit “Mmmbop,” HANSON has been performing as a group for a whopping 26 years. The band formed when Isaac, Taylor, and Zack Hanson were only 11, nine, and six respectively.

When: July 9, 2019
Time: 10 pm
Where: The Big Four Roadhouse – 1801 Big Four Trail SE, Calgary
Tickets: Ticket prices start at $18 – You can purchase Big Four Roadhouse tickets here



3 new pages added

By | July 7, 2019

3 new pages have been added to the site and drop down menus.

The Tour Dates & Setlist tab now has a “Tour History” page which includes tidbits on each of the band’s tours – as well as what songs were first performed live on those tours, covers and unreleased tracks performed.  If you know of anything missing that should be included, please be sure to let us know.

The lyrics tab now has a “Search” page.  While this page has always been around, it has been hiding and this more prominent location will now make it easier for you to search for Hanson lyrics based on words or phrases.

The Database > Shows By Location tab now includes “Asia“, while we unfortunately do not have a fun map for this location, we do have our fingers crossed for more dates in Asia on the “comprehensive world tour” in 2020.  If you notice any countries that should be included on this list – be sure to let us know so we can get them added!

 



HANSON: Celebrate Independence!

By | July 5, 2019


WEEKLY PIC

This week, we leaped into US Independence Day and shared our third video featuring music from the In Real Life Hanson.net EP. This week features the song “The Ballad of Seymour Better Times”.  Get the full music and vids when you join Hanson.net


MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

Happy Independence Day! Yesterday, we celebrated our country with close friends and good food, and general tomfoolery, and despite our best efforts all eyes, ears, fingers and toes are still attached and accounted for. Forming 3CG Records and going Independent in 2003 was a defining moment in the HANSON story, changing the way we look at our music and our business forever. Yesterday we got to thinking, I bet not every country has a national holiday to celebrate the United States declaring independence from England and King George III. We have heard that a party is good, but a big party is better, so come 2020 and beyond we invite all non American Citizens to join the July 4th celebration and simply celebrate HANSON’s Independence! Americans proceed per usual.

This is week three of our Real to Reel video series exploring the songs that make up our In Real Life EP. We have been through “Compromise” and “Worth the Wait” so now it’s time for a listen and look at “The Ballad of Seymour Better Timers”.  Part Robin Hood and Little John part Rocky Raccoon and all story Seymour is a colorful romp through the playful and somewhat tragic choices of a man in search of something better. Enjoy.

-Isaac Taylor and Zac

HANSON: It will be worth the wait!

By | July 1, 2019


WEEKLY PIC

This week, we are rolling out our second video in the series of our ongoing roll out of content from our In Real Life Hanson.net EP. Check out the content on Hanson.net and our Real to Reel interview series on YouTube!


MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

Big thank you to everyone who joined us in Milwaukee for Summerfest! Maybe it’s because of the connection to Albertane, maybe not, but we always have a great time in in Mil-eh-wak-eh… Which is Algonquin for the good land!

This week, we are sharing our second episode in a new video series called “Real to Reel” featuring the song “Worth the Wait” from of our 2019 Members EP, “In Real Life”.  Every year, the Members EP’s continue to stake their claim in the HANSON musical universe as they become a bigger and bigger part of our musical catalog. We are excited to bring all of you with us as we talk about what’s behind the songs we created for “In Real Life”.

On the theme of new for the first time ever, we have created a music video focused not on a song but on a whole project. Part Narrative, part fly on the wall, it is a five-part companion for the five song “In Real Life” EP that shares the spirit of how we make our music, and touches on how we live.

If you enjoy the videos, look for a new Real to Reel episode next Friday, and for HNet members part three of the “In Real Life” music video.

‘They make us feel young:’ 50 in line at Summerfest score passes for Hanson’s intimate acoustic set

MILWAUKEE — It was a mad rush to get through the gates as Summerfest 2019 began on Wednesday, June 26. Some fans really couldn’t wait to get in.

“I didn’t know there were lines waiting to get in,” said Cassie Duck.

Cassie Duck was among the fans in long lines, eager to get the party started.

“I’ve never been at this time before. I’ve always been on the weekends, later at night,” Duck said.

Greeting guests at the gate were people like Noah Fusco, who moved to Milwaukee a month ago.

“This is a giant puppet strapped to my back,” said Fusco.

After responding to an online ad looking for puppeteers, Fusco was one-half of a giant Samba puppet duo, proving anything is possible at the Big Gig!

Rachael Ricci left Appleton at 8 a.m. on Wednesday with her friend, Tara Pigeon, to score a special pass to see the band Hanson.

“They make us feel young again. It brings back a lot of memories,” said Pigeon.

The first 50 people in got a pass to see the trio in an intimate, acoustic concert on the American Family Insurance stage. Ricci and Pigeon got the last two tickets. They planned to be “MMMBop”-ing all night.

Bernie Unold argued she’s the biggest groupie at the Big Gig.

“My son plays every year,” said Unold.

Unold’s son, Chad, is the drummer for the Waukesha-based band “Northern Haunts.” She said she never misses a show.

“I’m going to go crazy over there,” said Unold.

Summerfest 2019: Steve Aoki, Hanson and the best and the worst on the side stages on opening day

By | June 27, 2019

Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Summerfest 2019 started with some old friends, shiny visuals and technical difficulties. Here’s what we heard on the festival’s ground stages Wednesday night.

Hanson

Trivia question: What is Hanson’s most recent release?

Give up? It’s called … “MMMBop.” That’s right, a four-track EP of remixes of the only song you know by the late-’90s adolescent heartthrobs, compiled just this year. Not that they’ve been idle all this time, but it does all boil down, doesn’t it?

Brothers Isaac, Taylor, and Zac have held fast to a pact: Their selves must forever be this. No matter what more reputable or lucrative avenues may be available to three so talented, photogenic lads, they’ll be Hanson forever.

The crowd at the U.S. Cellular Connection Stage was modest but mighty, unabashed, emanating joy. For 90 minutes, in 2019, irony did not exist. Such is the magic and/or tragedy of Summerfest.

HANSON: Real to Reel Videos Series!

By | June 22, 2019


WEEKLY PIC

We are excited to start sharing, the story and the inside look at our new EP In Real Life.


MESSAGE FROM THE BAND

With the release of our new Hanson.net EP, “In Real Life,” we are starting a video series looking at the songs, the recording and our process of recording EPs every year. We’re calling the series “Real to Reel” playing on the title of the new EP (In Real Life) and how our catalog is really a 27 yearlong piece of music chronicling our perspective on life. In addition to the interview today, we are also sharing the first in a five-part music video for the EP starting with the first song, Compromise. Part two will be posted next week for Hanson.net members as well as a new video in the Real to Reel Series to the public looking at the song “Worth The Wait”.
