Middletown, Connecticut, United States (2000 – present). Have a Nice Life is a shoegaze / industrial / new wave hybrid duo from Middletown, Connecticut, United States formed in year 2000. It is the brainchild of Tim Macuga, black metal experimentalist in Nahvalr and songwriter for the classic Western Massachusetts hardcore band The Danger Strangers, and Dan Barrett, singer of the ghost music project Giles Corey and the now-defunct In Pieces.
