“We all have half lives” is how rock trio Halflives introduce their vision. Behind this raw statement stands the idea that our journey through existence is the sum of our battles, which ambivalently break us and make us. Having survived the trials of life on the road, including a kidnapping in their own van that made them fear for their lives, Halflives have never been more resilient and determined to turn adversity into opportunity. Boldly honest and outspoken, Halflives embrace an unapologetic creative freedom and openly serve a catchy blend of melodic alt-rock, cutting-edge pop and textured elements from the trap and electronica worlds. Their first two EPs “Empty Rooms” (2017) and “Resilience” (2020) took them to 15 different countries to play over 100 shows, supporting the likes of PVRIS, Against The Current, The Faim, Icon For Hire, Chapel and more.
Halflives self-assigned the mission to create a space where everyone is invited to take a break from how messed up the world is and embrace who they are without any compromise.
A new single “Villain” comes out on November 13th 2020 introducing a darker era with a return to the band’s rock guitar-driven roots, followed by “Vibe” on April 2nd 2021 and “Victim” on May 28th 2021. The new EP “V” came out on July 2nd 2021.
