Exclusive Premiere: The Honest Heart Collective, ‘Haymaker’
Self-described as "folk-infused rock with a punk mentality," it's no surprise we here at Diffuser quickly fell in love with the Honest Heart Collective and their debut album, Liar's Club. Hailing from Thunder Bay, Ontario, the Honest Heart Collective are incomparable performers, undoubtedly sinking their entire beings into every second of the music they create. That energy is perfectly captured in their new music video for "Haymaker," and today (July 27), we are ecstatic to team up with the rockers for its premiere -- check it out above.
“‘Haymaker’ was an especially difficult song to write,” frontman Ryan MacDonald admits. “The song revolves around me saying something awful to someone that I love ... lyrically, it’s a really heavy tune.”
And now visually, that heaviness is on full-display thanks to the direction of the Trenches Media. "We’re really excited to release our new video on Diffuser," MacDonald says. "There was a ton of work put in by everyone involved so we hope you like it!"
Liar's Club is packed with 10 tracks of authentically intense rock from this group of independent musicians; you can grab more details on the disc at the Honest Heart Collective's Bandcamp. The band recently wrapped up their summer tour across Canada, so make sure to stay up-to-date with everything in their world -- and grab a free download of "Haymaker" -- at their official website.
