The forthcoming album is a follow-up to Chris’s 2017 solo album entitled "Your Ugly Friends", which was nominated for multiple 88Nine’s Music Awards, was selected as NSAI "One to Watch", and won Dylan Days Singer/Songwriter Contest. “Suburban View” comes on the steps of CHB already receiving a WAMI Award Nomination for 2019.
Self-recorded and engineered by band member Mark Harrig, “Suburban View” is composed of 7 tracks that reflect on Haise’s past experiences. The album speaks to generational uncertainty trying to figure out a place in a changing world with songs like “Reciprocity” and “Help Myself”.
Although a few songs on the album have a familiar feel to Haise’s solo album, songs like “Women in Black” and “The Breakman” show Haise’s growth as a songwriter. Haise also addresses hot button issues such as mental health with the powerful tune “Night Shadows”.
