Hollywood, CA, April 21, 2016 --(PR.com
)-- Hailing from the idyllic suburbs of Vienna, Austria, electronic pop/rock band, HUNGER was first formed in early 2014. Childhood friends, Daniel Rumpel and Johannes Herbst approached long-term fellow and vocalist, Lucas Frendrich to create the band, HUNGER. When producing their first record, in order to create the right atmosphere, the band used a small home-studio in an old house in the hills outside of Vienna. The house sits directly in the woods and made its own impression on their first album.
In 2015 the trio relocated to Los Angeles, CA, where the band was signed to executive producer and publisher “1st Production.” Once in the U.S., the band met producer/financier Dr. Juergen Pichler and together they put together the album, Gravity in less than 3 months. Gravity is now available on iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon, Soundcloud and Spotify. HUNGER will be announcing their tour dates soon. Their music video/short film is set to be released in May. It was directed by Christian Lamb of Pentatonix, Incubus, Madonna & Taylor Swift fame. HUNGER's full-length debut album is set for release in August, 2016.
Gravity is the second story in a trilogy of three connected music videos. Though it was difficult for Daniel, Johannes and Lucas to choose their first single, “We just had the feeling that this story and this track is the right thing to release first. This song is very special to us, it is very poppy but at the same time super dark, epic and painful…this song represents the whole project.”
The trio constantly discusses and adjusts the band’s direction - song concepts, sound, branding, images, videos, and artwork. Each small aspect makes up a larger vision, and each member of the trio has their own place in the process. Process has no place without inspiration. Their sound is primarily art and story driven. Each song stems from a particular concept, which affects the mood, sound and lyrics of the finished piece.
"What a great time in music for hunger to embark on this epic journey. I am excited for what their future holds."
- Dr. Juergen Pichler
Who is HUNGER?
Coming off of the success of their band FDTF, childhood friends Daniel Rumpel and Johannes Herbst approached long-term fellow and vocalist Lucas Frendrich with the intention of creating a truly dark and cinematic sound.
In the beginning, the trio was meant to be a songwriting collective focused on epic songs that provoke an immediate, specific feeling within the listener. Standard song structures and melodies were disregarded in favor of the tone and evocation of the music. Perspectives shifted as soon as the band went into studio with British producer Dan Weller in the Fall of 2014. The trio couldn’t deny their band roots and ended up with a vast, dark, cinematic sound - thus the formation of HUNGER.
HUNGER’s sound is the result of three very different, yet complimentary minds. Although it took time to define their musical direction, the three band mates were able to use their differences to fuse a unique vision in which they were all comfortable and confident. Each member of the trio brings something distinctive to the overall collective.
