Gregg Giuffré from Brooklyn, New York, stopped by Vic’s to pick up a few things for his upcoming recording session this week.
Gregg plays drums in the band, Hunters. They just completed a tour with Bleached that ended last night @ Subterranean here in Chicago. Prior to this tour, the Hunters performed @ SXSW and then headed back to New York to begin recording their latest album @ Treefort Studios. Producer Shane Stonback who’s worked on albums by bands like Vampire Weekend and Sleigh Bells produced the recording. With most of the record already completed, Gregg and the band decided to capitalize on ending their tour in Chicago by recording more tracks, this time @ Steve Albini’s Electrical Audio studio, AND visiting Vic’s! Vic’s has been on Gregg’s hit list since he first learned about us.
Gregg picked up one of Zildjian’s latest releases – a 23″ A Sweet Ride. He also picked up a 22″ Remo Coated Powerstroke 4 bass drum head, Drum O’s Bass Drum O Hole Cutter, 2 DW memory locks, and several pairs of Vic Firth American Classic 5A wood tip drumsticks.
Hunters begin recording tomorrow. Their album is due out in August so be on the lookout for it. They’re a four piece rock band in the vein of early Nirvana and Sonic Youth featuring both male and female vocals. Definitely some good stuff!
