The Hunna is Coming to the Fillmore in San Francisco

in Music News by

According to a press release that went out today, The Hunna will be making a stop in San Francisco on their trek across the U.S. opening for the legendary Jimmy Eat World.

Making their official debut in October of 2015 with their first single, “Bonfire,” the UK four-piece’s rise has been nothing short of meteoric. By the time their second single, “We Could Be” was unleashed, The Hunna had sold out 3 nights at London’s Boston Music Rooms and their music was making waves in the iTunes and Spotify charts on a global scale.

With only a handful of songs under their belt, The Hunna quickly amassed a massive fanbase that has generated over 11 million video streams and their infectious sonic bombast has caught the attention of buzzy US tastemakers like Consequence of Sound, NYLON, Billboard and more. The Hunna continued to capture audience’s hearts with their enigmatic live show when they arrived in the The States for a tour in June, playing to sold out audiences in major markets like New York City, with additional shows in Chicago, Los Angeles and more.

The Hunna began to take shape when Ryan (Vocals/Guitar), Dan (Lead Guitar) and Jermaine (Bass) met in college. After a couple of line-up changes, Jack arrived on drums and everything fell into place. A sucker for a good chorus, the boys like to work from the outside in when it comes to writing. “There are so many different processes to what we do, but often we’ll start with a chorus, and then we’ll funnel in from there,” the band have noted about their writing and recording process.
