After releasing a EP in the summer of 09 Charlie Fisher, Travis Chapman, and James Logan joined the group giving the band its current line up.

The Hague play a distinctly northwest brand of violin driven indie rock anthems mixing elements of pop, alt country, math rock, post rock, and 90′s underground sounds.

Since their inception in 09 “The Hague” have toured over 20 states, released a 2 full length LP’s, and 3 EP’s, including their latest “The Stark House EP”. They have shared stages with international acts such as; The Smoking Popes, The Globes, Blunt Mechanic, The Lonely Forest, Murder By Death, God is an Astronaut, The Paper Chase, and The Appleseed Cast building a great buzz through their violin driven indie rock anthems.

The Hague have worked with producers like Brandon Eggleston (mountain goats, John Vanderslice) and Adam Pike (Red Fang, Black Elk) and have been well received, gathering press from national publications such as The Onion, and have been called “the future of the Portland music scene” by the local media.

Currently they are working on their next full length release (due summer 12’), playing throughout the Westcoast and getting ready for a 8 week US tour next July.
*Note-The Hague was formally known as “And I was like, what?”
