The Hunts, a sibling band from Chesapeake, VA, has announced its massive North American summer tour, starting June 16th in Annapolis, MD with stops in NYC, Chicago, Denver and Los Angeles before wrapping up in Selbyville, DE on August 20th, including a performance at Firefly Music Festival in Dover, DE on June 18-21.
As was previously stated, the band will release their debut album, entitled Those Younger Days, on June 9th 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 members of the outfit are described in the press release as 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.
