Speaking to Kerrang about the single frontman Ryan Potter said, “We just wanted an up-tempo one for shows that people were just going to jump around and go crazy to. It’s definitely got a throwback sound to me as well.”
And the track has got the reaction the band were hoping for, demonstrated in the new video filmed on their current sold out UK headline tour, where they are playing the new album in full to a rabid reaction from fans alongside a set of hits spanning their gold-certified back catalogue.
The headline tour wraps up this week with four final dates including London’s Electric Ballroom on Friday 4th November. Following this they will be embarking on an intimate run of acoustic shows across the UK, performing the high energy punk songs in ways not yet heard before.
The Hunna has been produced by the legendary Gil Norton (Pixies, Foo Fighters, Jimmy Eat World) and seethes with colossal riffs, irresistible melodies and memorable lyrics. It features previously released singles including ‘Trash’, ‘Apologies’, ‘Untouched Hearts’ and ‘Fugazi’ – the video for the latter was released on Friday and features a cameo from The Hills Justin Bobby.
The new album has received great praise, “The British rockers have delivered some of their finest work yet”, said the Daily Express, while Punktastic proclaimed, “This band at their very best”.
The Hunna will be treating European fans to the new album live early next year on a co-headline tour with You Me At Six throughout February and March, while they will be returning to the UK to play festivals in the summer. They have been announced to perform at Slam Dunk Festival in May and have more announcements to follow soon.
