Hunger Anthem Bio Pic

Hunger Anthem is an indie rock band based in Athens, Georgia with an unabashed penchant for guitar driven potent-pop immediacy, bearing an evident DIY punk ethos. Rooted in a lo-fi approach, the first album was recorded in a small apartment which had just a noisy space heater to see the winter through. A black drum set and several scattered guitars occupied the living space, as well as a couple of microphones and a healthy pile of torn and well-written upon pieces of notebook paper that sat on a table next to a probing pair of felines and a humming Tascam 4-track with a pair of blown out headphones connected to it. Voices seeped in through the windows from the busy and hurried sidewalk out in front of the house. Faces grinned, places were confused, conversations glowed on and disappeared in seconds.

As circumstances evolved and expanded a bit on further releases, and options grew somewhat, the mindset and work ethic remained the same. Chords are hurled into the clamor and ether of touring on a regular basis, funneled through endless hours of youthful tennis racket-strumming to early Kiss and late Beatles records and the realization that in the end, strawberry fields are also hotter than hell, and time is what you make of it.
