After a couple years, a couple name changes and a few lineup adjustments, central Texas-based alternative rock band Lonely Hunter is back at it again. After a successful tour in support of the band’s original self-titled EP in 2011, life’s little things caught up with the band and they took a temporary hiatus. But now, Lonely Hunter is ready to shake off the dust and hit the road again with brand new tunes and their new EP, When Winter Comes, with the help of M.D. Thompson of Ivory Tower Realizations.
The band now consists of vocalist/guitarist Collin Brewer, guitarist Tyler Kern, bassist Jacob Massey, and drummer Austin Laskowski. Although they have dealt with a few lineup changes, Lonely Hunter is ready to buckle down and release a full-length album very soon. “There’s a process of learning to be a band again that comes with new musicians — everyone has different styles and sensibilities,” says Massey. “We wanted to make a full-length record and talked for awhile about how it ought to sound and feel. It’s important to us for our albums to maintain a sense of unity front to back, both in sound and content. The Resolution EP  is all about a particularly devastating breakup and both the fallout and rebuilding therein, Lonely Hunter EP  deals very much with isolation and the hope and desire for connection.”
When Winter Comes consists of brand new music that the band is very proud of and believes representative of who they are as a band now, transitioning the listener onto a whole new direction. The first track, “Dry Land,” will feel very familiar to a Lonely Hunter fan. As it progresses to “Rest,” “Not Coming Down,” and finally the title track, “When Winter Comes,” any listener will be able to hear and feel the music change within them. “Dry Land” might feel comfortable for Lonely Hunter, but the band believes “Not Coming Down” will make a fan pause and think this new direction is totally worthwhile and will appeal to any listener, old and new alike.
New direction aside, Lonely Hunter’s live shows will remain as cool and captivating as before, and they have a track record to prove it. The band has shared the stage across Texas with artists like The Rocket Summer, Lovedrug, David Ramirez, Deas Vail, Ivoryline and Quiet Company, and have performed in multiple showcases with SXSW and the Austin City Limits Music Festival. With When Winter Comes, the guys are dead set on recapturing the essence of Lonely Hunter, touring the state and spreading their sound to new ears, prepping the world for their next full-length record.
