If Oasis did more songs sounding like this ( Burn It All Away ), I'd be a bigger fan, that's for sure! - Wyatt, Planet Rock

Following the success of their debut EP Out of the Woods , HUNTER-GATHERER's pounding sound has had consistent airplay, with their entire EP being played on BBC Introducing Radio York.

Burn It All Away in particular was repeatedly played on Planet Rock. After undergoing a recent lineup change, HG are back and bigger than ever, with a string of gigs planned to punch a hole in your eardrums.


Hello 2022, we're here to play and HG are here to stay.

"If Oasis did more songs sounding like this (Burn It All Away), I'd be a bigger fan, that's for sure!"

Wyatt, Planet Rock 

"Pickering in North Yorkshire has produced top cricketers and even a top snooker player. But now Pickering can lay claim to producing an incredible rock band, Hunter-Gatherer. The boys are back with another cracking single. Full of gargantuan riffs and fine metal melodies. This lot are still on my list to see live post-COVID-19."

Bill AdamsonWith Just A Hint Of Mayhem 

"(Head Down) Yet another blinder of a single from HUNTER-GATHERER. What a way to end the show!"

Jericho Keys, BBC Introducing York & North Yorkshire

"Hunter-Gatherer give a fantastic performance with their gripping alt-Rock music. Plenty of artistry and musicianship on show as you can feel the music blasting through the speakers. Loud enough to be heard right across the North Yorkshire Moors into the city they play next." Sam Lowe, Number 9

"We're hoping that Hunter-Gatherer comes out with more of their exclusive sound, but for now, we're perfectly content with having "Run My Mind" on repeat!" Buzz Music

" ‘Run My Mind’ is a great example of what rock music can be when you are passionate about music. It doesn’t need to be fancy just full-on and leave nothing to waste. The future looks good for Hunter-Gatherer as they build on their previous releases of ‘Move’ and ‘Pedestal’ they are quickly creating a great catalogue of songs."  Sol Campbell - RGM

"With every release Hunter-Gatherer impress me more and more, this release doesn’t disappoint, it’s a huge step up. Get to it right now."

Frank Roper - Local Sound Focus
