You’ve gotta have a code. And, for years, a good one that’s never failed us is TRUST JAMES IHA. The ex-Smashing Pumpkins and sometimes Perfect Circle guitarist knows things, and when word got out that fiery Brooklyn punk outfit Hunters were in the studio with Iha, well, we knew too. We put them on the cover in early December — the quaintly titled Brooklyn’s Hunters Will Curb Stomp You with a Smile — and in March the band announced their Iha-recorded effort would be released via Mom + Pop. Today we’re thrilled to announce they’ll play our 4Knots Music Festival. What’s that? Held June 29th at South Street Seaport’s Pier 17 from 1 – 8pm, 4Knots is FREE and outdoors. It’s also pretty huge: Kurt Vile, Marnie Stern, the Men, Parquet Courts, Reigning Sound, White Lung, Fat Tony, the Babies, and Heliotropes. Now, Hunters.
Oh yeah, and Lil B is playing the official after party.
You’ll find a 4Knots Music Festival final lineup flyer and a video of Hunters in action on a NYC rooftop after the jump. Go forth!
