Hunted Checks In With 2011 Recap Statement

Hunted has checked in with the following recap of the previous year and update about upcoming activity:

"Hunted would like to wish everyone a very Heavy New Year! Last year turned out to be a very successful one for the band and we just thought we'd take a moment to give you a quick recap and say a big thank you to all the cool people who helped us out!

"Since the independent release of 'Welcome the Dead' at the end of 2010, things have really started to kick off for the band. All the hard work (and dodgy tea) that went into the album paid off once Massacre Records decided to welcome us into their Metal ranks! This was awesome news, not least because of the amazing roster of bands they've supported over the years and their global presence in the Metal community. 2011 saw 'Welcome the Dead' end up on the shelves of the best music stores around the UK and on the digital 'shelves' of the major online retailers, as well as featuring in the pages of some great UK and European metal magazines. A big "cheers" to everyone at Massacre Records for all their hard work and help in getting our music out there!

"In 2011, we were lucky enough to receive loads of fantastic (and constructive!) reviews. We'd like to give huge thanks to all the 'zine people who gave 'Welcome the Dead' a chance, especially in the early days before the label came on board. Very Metal salutations to all who took the time to listen and review the album, particularly Stone Isoliani, Andrea Rodella, Sergio Rapetti, Christopher Foley, David Whistance and Kelley Simms, all of whose support has been key to the progression of the band.

"In November last year, Hunted finally managed to release our first official video! This involved plenty of hard work, a drummer with 'counting issues', inexplicable fashion decisions (have you noticed???) and vast amounts of hair product! The video is doing really well and has received lots of attention, and we'd like to thank everyone involved in putting it together, especially the evil mastermind Lyndon Carrol!

"2011 also saw us receive the backing of some of the legends behind the scenes in music – the lovely people who make our axes and amps! Many thanks to ENGL amplification, DEAN guitars, TAMA drums, LANEY amplification and IBANEZ guitars for their band endorsements.

"Last but definitely not least, we'd like to say a huge thank you to all you crazy metalheads who have come and supported the band at our gigs. We know everyone says this but we really couldn't do any of this without your support and we hope to give you lots of awesome shows (and a second album??) this year…

"Metal thanks to absolutely everyone and apologies to anyone we've managed to miss out. Keep your eyes and ears open for some very cool news, hopefully very soon!!"
