Johnny Hunter are hitting the road! The Sydney-based post-punk rockers have announced a string of tour dates, in support of the release of their debut album, Want, due out next month.
Kicking off on the Gold Coast on July 1, the run of shows will continue on to Brisbane, Newcastle, Sydney, Wollongong, Adelaide, Melbourne and Perth, before wrapping up in Hobart on July 29.
Produced by Jack Moffitt (The Preatures) and mixed by critically acclaimed engineer Adam Greenspan (IDLES, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds), the album is set to explore and document the human existence, focusing on a self-examination that leads to self-actualisation. Dreams captures the ever-changing state of life, built upon uplifting guitar melodies and frontman Nick Hutt's hypnotic vocals.
Having signed to Cooking Vinyl Australia earlier this year, the four-piece are teasing the release of their debut album, set to drop this year. Following on from their 2021 autumn tour, the band shared their first taste of new music with The Floor, which arrived alongside a dramatic visual, directed by Dakota Fisher. Johnny Hunter's debut EP Early Trauma introduced listeners to their avant-garde approach to post-punk, with their audience growing with each release
