ABOUT: A Rock and Post-Punk group that hopes to reach new heights with their music, The Haptics formed when a gang of like-minded individuals got together in Vancouver. Bonding over their mutual love of melodic, post-punk beats, and a general love for creating noise, the versatile artists decided to chart a new voyage with their music.

The Haptics consists of Andre on drums, Brent on bass, Cam on guitar, and Jin on vocals- artists who met in early 2022 to share their passion for the post-punk genre. Inspired by just making noise and having fun with their instruments, the artists remain confident that their debut album will be loved by listeners. Besides playing music, the artists frequently get together to drink beer and see other Rock bands in action. The Haptics have their base in Vancouver but continue to showcase their craft throughout the country.
