Little King Hunter

vEdit:

*Little King Hunter has split. Details in last post*

Read full bio on Little King Hunter Online

Little King Hunter was a 4-piece hard rock band based in rocky-shored Halifax, Nova Scotia. Formed in the fall of 2008 by JohnnyV and Luke Deveau, both artists wanted to create music that was stylistically unique and rich with texture. It wasn't long before bassist Mike Akerman completed the band's foundation and serious writing and rehearsing took place. Influenced by artists such as Tool, Queens of the Stone Age, Led Zeppelin and Pink Floyd; their music has soaked up the best aspects of hard rock, psychedelic rock and progressive metal.


[original post]:
New band to the East Coast scene (specifically Halifax NS). We came together in October of 2008 and we're just looking to play whatever sounds good. All original songs drawing influence from bands like Black Sabbath, Queens of the Stone Age and ZZ Top.

A few gigs under the belt, one more confirmed on the way (July 17th at Coconut Grove). Check out our MySpace.

For those of you who frequent UG from the HRM area in Nova Scotia (or if you're gonna be in Halifax NS on the 29th of July) we're headlining the Tribeca Club. More details on our MySpace and the LKH Profile in my signature.

We have some video that turned out pretty good from the last Coconut Grove show. Those will likely be added to the MySpace soon. Pictures have also been added to the UG Band profile so have a gander.

Latest developments:

We are hosting our own SHOUTcast radio station to promote our music (for the sake of content, we are also gearing up with local maritime bands as well). You can tune in at shoutcast.com and search the station"KingFM".

Our 2 demo tracks are done! After 10 studio hours the recording aspect is complete. Luke and myself will meet with our engineer (Chance from the Shambhala School) to master the tracks a little bit before they hit our myspace, SHOUTcast, local radio stations and venues.

Hello Internet,

Demo tracks from Shambhala School are DONE! The songs we decided to record were Zombies! and Skipper. Check out our MySpace or UG Profile for a listen. You won't be disappointed.

These tracks should be up on the SHOUTcast ASAP and please feel free to comment on the tunes/blogs regarding the songs. I can promise there will be more to come.

I didn't think I'd be back again so soon!

The SHOUTcast radio stream KingFM is online and currently streaming! Here's how to listen:

1. Go to www.shoutcast.com from your browser
2. Search KingFM in the search field
3. Click the yellow "Tune In" tab to the left of the results

I'm still figuring out some details about direct links to our SHOUTcast server, but you are all encouraged to share these directions with ANYONE and EVERYONE. WE NEED MORE MARITIME CANADIAN CONTENT! Please get in touch with me so we can arrange getting a hold of your songs so they can be on KingFM as well. We want to showcase local tallent for the whole world to hear.

Until next time

Yet again, more promo work.

You may be familiar with CBC Radio Canada. Well we have a profile on there now as well. We are also streaming our demo from CBC New Music Canada and we should have a hard copy of our demo in the hands of this radio station very soon.

Fellow UGer's and Cell-phonians:
Zombies! is available to for download as a ringtone for your mobile phone *free of charge! Visit http://www.myxer.com and search "little king hunter". We aren't a super popular search yet but the tune is there. About 20 seconds of the bridge of our latest demo release Zombies!.

*While we do not charge for the ringtone, your cell phone carrier may charge for any data usage the download requires.

Is this for the birds or what?

Little King Hunter now believes that we are important enough to be followed on Twitter! I can honestly admit that joining the stupidest social networking conglomerate available is out of sheer boredom at work. We will update on shows and events as well as the random BS that goes on during our practices.

Hello once again UG!

I'm very pleased and proud to report that this upcoming Sunday (December 13th 2009), Little King Hunter will lay down the first of our base tracks for our debut album. It's an extremely exciting moment and anyone of you who have already tried/succeeded at this understand my level of excitement.

I can't tell you what songs we will feature, but i can tell you we will be including the 3 tracks on our MySpace. Feel free to have a listen and leave any remarks on what you think. Always interested in constructive criticism.

Also, thanks to the 22 of you who have downloaded our Kingtone! Visit myxer.com/kingtone from your mobile browser to get in on the action.

Little King Hunter is a band from Halifax that was formed in 2008 with the intent of creating music on its own terms. The idea behind the band is simple; to make music that is distinct, meaningful and challenging, not only for the audience but for themselves. In the absence of music and art that really speaks to and for them, they simply make their favorite music for themselves. They are not satisfied with the "same old same old" and they purposely strive to colour outside the lines. There is more to come. LKH plan to record some new material in 2009 and play as much as humanly possible.

Any Grooveshark users on here?

If you use Grooveshark you can now search Little King Hunter or either of our demo tracks (Zombies! and Skipper) and add them to your Grooveshark play list.

Latest news: We're back in studio (hard) to get this first album out!

I urge everyone who checks this post to listen to our demo at any one of the following locations in my sig (if you haven't heard it yet). If there are any UGers who would like a copy of our release, PM me and we'll work something out.

Latest progress report:

We're still alive and well. Lots of studio work finished, but lots more to go. Should have a lot of guitar tracks cut by next week.

We're playing at Joker's comedy Club tonight (for any UGer's in HRM of Nova Scotia). Also, we have a tentative date for Battle of the Bands at Club 1668 in the coming month. Stay tuned. Also, some minor edits to our MySpace and UG Band profile, so keep checking in.

Also, i know it's been mentioned in our band stuff but thanks a lot to Robin Denyar for all your photography work. http://www.flickr.com/robindenyar. Thanks guy!

Very nice songs, quality of recording, and general feeling!

The vocals could be a bit better, but still, the guy is obviously capable of more!

Good job, and rock on tonight!

Hey UG!

Sh*ts been busy! Lots of studio time in but we need more. I'd say we're about....25% of the way to our release. Estimated time of release is June!

Also, due to lifestyle changes and scheduling conflicts, we have had to part ways with our drummer. Any UGers who may hail from HRM in Nova Scotia are welcome to contact me for an audition. Dedication is going to be your key.

We have two more gigs coming up (we shall play with or WITHOUT a drummer!)

Thursday May 27th - Club 1668 - Battle of the Bands
Thursday June 10th - Club 1668 - Hard Rock Show

vEdit: first show date has changed

Couple of details for the UGers here!

We have found a permanent full-time drummer to complete us! Shane Pardy will debut tonight at Club 1668 in Halifax NS for our set. Shane is a monster drummer (that means he eats other drummers are their kits for breakfast, followed by their wives and children for lunch and supper).

Also, LKH advanced to the final round of Club 1668's Battle of the Bands. A little late announcing JV, but nevertheless, it takes place tomorrow (June 11th) at Club 1668.

Studio Progress Report:
We're still working. I really hope to have this thing done by the end of this month.

Stay loud UG, very loud!

Some statistics from us...

Myxer:
Item Downloads
Stone and Gears (Wallpaper) 1
Zombies! (Ringtone) 212

Grooveshark:
97 plays between April 3rd 2010 and July 2nd 2010
Zombies! 66
Skipper 31

As well, some depressing news. Due to a lot of scheduling conflicts this past month, new drummer and serious lack of funding we're being forced to delay the release of our CD. We're going to try and tug some strings and do what we can to have some professional material out as soon as humanly possible. I know there area few UGers who have requested a copy of our work and I sincerely apologize for the extended delay, but these things take time and effort and we want to release the best product we possibly can.

I encourage you all to share our links if you really appreciate our stuff as that may just help speed things up. If anyone would like to comment on our work, make a promotional suggestion, request a copy of our CD or help us out in any fashion at all, please email me directly - vri3nd@gmail.com with "LKH" in the subject (please).

Thanks UG, for all you have done to make things happen.
