The Hunts on US Summer Tour

posted Jun 23, 2015, 8:49 PM by Vu Nguyen
Sibling band The Hunts  release their debut album, entitled Those Younger Days, today via Cherrytree Records/Interscope.  The Hunts wrote all of the songs on the album, which was recorded in Virginia Beach, VA, not far from their hometown of Chesapeake, and executive produced by Chris Kuffner (A Great Big World, Ingrid Michaelson).

 

The band will set out on a US summer cross country tour kicking off June 16th in Annapolis, MD with stops in NYC, Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles before wrapping up in San Diego on July 29thThe tour will also include a performance at the Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE on June 19th

 

The first single from Those Younger Days is “Make This Leap” — a lilting slice of folk-pop built on layered harmonies, intricately textured acoustic instrumentation, and lyrics that gracefully shift from melancholy to triumphant. The correlating video was shot in Chesapeake with a few moments filmed on the family’s property and was directed by Michelle Peerali, who has collaborated with such artists as The Kills, The Cult, The Black Keys, Pyyramids, and Moby. Watch it HERE. “Make This Leap” is also included on the band’s debut EP Life Was Simple, which was released in August.  Check out their track “Valentina” which Entertainment Weekly raves, “ (Valentina) is as catchy as it is touching, and it’s hard to avoid tapping a toe to the alt-folk track.” 

The Hunts have been playing music together almost their entire lives. Ranging from ages 17 to 25, twin sisters Jenni and Jessi and their five brothers Josh, Jonathan, Jordan, Justin, and Jamison all learned to sing and play violin as young kids and spent much of their childhood performing throughout their community. After teaching themselves to play instruments like mandolin, piano, ukulele, banjo, and drums, The Hunts began experimenting with songwriting and soon brought to life a batch of songs that reveal their sophisticated sense of melody and dreamy innocence.  Check out www.TheHuntsMusic.com for all updates.
