HAUNTER traces its roots back to late 2016. Enoma Asowata (guitars/synths) had met producer/songwriter Tyler Smyth (I Prevail, Falling In Reverse, Blessthefall) as so many musicians in the pop world of today do – while pursuing DIY projects during the Warped Tour era. The duo clicked musically, and after several months of talks, Enoma sent Tyler some rough demos of songs he had written. The idea behind all this was to do something different, challenging, and brutally honest. They said about their new single Miss Me:
This song speaks how there are two sides to a break up. We wanted to talk about the tension that exists when things fall apart, discovering your self worth, wishing things went differently and knowing you aren’t completely innocent in how the relationship ends. Break ups are the worst but it’s a common human experience and we wanted to be able to share a semi-autobiographical story about it. We partnered with our friend R I L E Y to embody the other side of the story.
