HUNTERS is a grim 5 piece metal band from Chicago, Illinois.
Barely a year old and having just recorded their first full length record with producer and long time friend Andrew Ragin (the Atlas Moth) and it being co-mixed and mastered by James Murphy (Testament, Death, Obituary) we intend to tour in the fall to promote the record heavily.
Having played countless shows in and around Chicago the past year with bands like; Sweet Cobra, Red Fang, Coliseum, Corrosion of Conformity, Indian, Earthride, Howl, Coffinworm, Lazarus A.D., Enabler, The Swan King, Wolvhammer, Millions, Lord Mantis, Backwoods Payback, Rue, Rebreather, Black Skies, and more. It's time for us to get our aggressive sound out of the midwest and into the ears of hungry fans of heavy music.
The ever entertaining onstage antics have built a buzz in the city with members spitting, pushing, playing pranks and at times even throwing punches at each other during the set, to truly visually represent the dark nature of our sound.
We even strongly pride ourselves on keeping the DIY attitude and lifestyle we were raised on by designing, printing & promoting our own merch and music. Something that is very rare these days with the saturated viral marketing monster that has now become the internet.
But, like every intelligent creature we are adapting to our surroundings and have been utilizing the evolution of media with our website and social media outlets. To better our communication with fans and even network with good friends in other bands and labels.
Be prepared for alot from us this fall/winter, as we are always writing music and creating art. It's our life... and without it... we are dirt.
