I would be lying to you and to ourselves not to finally announce what’s impossible to
avoid anymore. After twelve years, three of them on life support, it’s now time for The
Hunters to die.
Four years ago, after writing our last record, Art Electric, we felt like we couldn’t go
further with this project. We didn’t have the courage to do as many shows as we had
done to promote the record before, Promises, since we had started a new project,
Caravane. Playing rock music in French was invigorating and we were tired of doing the
same thing over and over without feeling there was any progress whatsoever. And,
deciding to sing in French has been the best decision I ever made.
It’s time for us to follow our own path like so many people we admire did before us.
Singing in my native tongue was something I did to stay true to myself. It felt a lot more
honest to write about my feelings and experiences in songs with the words I use every
day. And, for the first time, I can hear myself sing without frowning in disgust… When we
started Caravane, we wanted our music to reflect who we were at that moment. We’ve
always been like that and it’s also why every album we made with The Hunters sounded
so different. We want to move forward and reinvent ourselves every time, to always be
proud of what we do and feel like we went as far as we could. I really think that’s what
best sums up The Hunters.
Our two bands underwent major changes in the last year with the departure of Danahé.
It was a difficult moment for us even if it was our decision to part ways with him. He was
our guitarist and friend since Kiss left the band back in 2009. He helped us in making
the records we always wanted and he was a part of the creation of our French alter-ego.
Even if it was a friendly break-up, things are what they are and we were forced to
distance ourselves from him. We wish him all the success he deserves in his new
projects. We will never forget the moments we shared.
Guillaume, who replaced him in the summer of last year, rekindled the flame that was
slowly burning out. We had a lot of fun writing the last Hunters EP (Black Eyes) with
him, just before we started working on a third album for Caravane. We will be
announcing a final tour shortly.
Even if we’re stoked about our new project, we’re going to miss this old punk band. It
allowed us to do everything for the first time. We learned to play, we traveled the world
and we met some amazing people. We would never have become the persons we are
today without this project. Everything that’s happening right now is in part because we
started The Hunters in our teens. We will always be grateful for it all.
I want to sincerely thank everyone who acknowledged our work for the past twelve
years. I feel blessed that people are interested in what we’re doing. We are the luckiest
persons in the world to have recognition doing what we love the most. We’ll always feel
rich because of all those experiences we lived thanks to of all of you.
