Hunters Sign to Mom + Pop, Announce Tour With JEFF the Brotherhood


File Under: BIG THANGS POPPIN’! Brooklyn cool kids and Voice cover subjects Hunters have just inked a deal with the Mom + Pop record label, the home of Big Deal bands like Sleigh Bells, Wavves, Metric, Tokyo Police Club, FIDLAR, Neon Indian, Freelance Whales, etc. etc., so on and so forth. They’ve also just announced a tour that will see them playing dates with both Bleached and JEFF the Brotherhood. In our cover story about them in early December of last year we (very accurately) wrote they invoke “a grimy, bygone New York City rock born of the loins: raw, sexy, scary, fuzzy, fun, fucked up.” The band’s producer, ex Smashing Pumpkin James Iha, said nice things too. Ditto Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ guitarist Nick Zinner. So, congrats Hunters! It was only a matter of time. Tour dates and other stuff after the jump.
