Group members Isaac, Taylor and Zac Hanson ages 24, 22 and 19 respectively are about to release a new CD, Live & Electric, that not only contains concert renditions of Mmmbop and Wheres The Love but also remakes of songs by Radiohead and U2.
The band is so confident their old fans will like it that they will promote the CD at colleges across the U.S. and personally meet with their fans.
Although many of their original fans have graduated to indie acts like Death Cab For Cutie and the White Stripes, lead singer Taylor Hanson is confident theyre still Hanson fans because, in his words, Even at current shows, theres a heavy percentage of people between the ages of 19 and 22 and those are college-age students.
The CD and tour arent the only projects on Hansons plate. The band also has a new documentary, Strong Enough To Break, which details the reasons why they decided to start their own independent record label.
