Stinghaze was formed in April 2017, originating from the words ‘Sting’ which is Dosting (High Dose) and ‘Haze’ taken from Jimi Hendrix’s song Purple Haze. The band’s initial concept was to play 70s heavy rock music influenced by Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath and Deep Purple.
Stinghaze sing about social issues that occur as you can hear in the three singles that they’ve released.
“Intrik” is the 3rd single about the 2019 presidential elections. There were two camps that fought for the top places in Indonesia. We were surprised by the riots and chaos that took place in front of BAWASLU on May 22-23.
Stinghaze’s plan for the future after releasing this intrigue song is to record two more songs to complete the mini album that we plan to release this year. Before that we will make a physical release in the form of a demo that contains a number of songs to be distributed to record labels and make some useful merchandise to help our promotion.
