Hunting Grounds’ Interview With MFTV

MusicFeedsTV catches up with Hunting Grounds (formerly HOWL) as they announce details of their forthcoming single, album releases and launch tour schedule.

The band’s new single Flaws has been released and represents a ‘maturing’ in their sound as they incorporate more synthesised layers of sound in their music. Accordingly, a lot of songs to be released on their new album will mirror this trend. While unplanned, the band feel this development made a lot of sense while in the recording process. It will be interesting to see how this translates into a live performance environment.

The Flaws music video makes a bold statement representing members of the band as leaders of what could be described as a cult-run community. The concept was proposed by band member Michael Belsar and was heavily influenced by an episode of the Simpsons titled ‘The Joy of Sect’. The band saw the idea as a great opportunity to produce a more creepy video that would engage their fans. You can check out the matching film clip for Flaws here:

While running the risk of alienating long-time fans, the band feel their new experimental approach to songwriting will ultimately produce better music. Thankfully for now, their heavy punkish roots will remain as a driving force in their music.

The full debut album In Hindsight will be released on July 6, 2012. There will be an official album launch party on 12th July to be held at a secret location in Melbourne. Guests will need to compete via the band’s Facebook page:
