Virginia based rock band THE HUNTRS has released their new single, “Locked & Loaded.”
“We’re not here for a long time so why not have a good time”. – The HUNTRS
After years of Eric Boyce begging his girlfriend Shannon Plumley to sing for him and a request from his mother to perform any other genre than metal, The Huntrs performed 2 original songs at a talent show in Petersburg, Va. June 2014. After having a great time and receiving standing ovation it was decided to continue furthering this new musical endeavor. Even without many performances the name spread through local benefit shows and house show parties. For years the songwriting continued as the search for the perfect lineup of members finally came to a conclusion in 2019 when Eric Boyce and Shannon Plumley added Mario Crawley and Stephen Zaruba. The first edition of Mario came clear to Eric after experiencing his talent and devotion in a local metal act. The addition of the drummer, Stephen, was ironically suggested by Eric’s mother, Julie, who coincidentally worked with Stephen’s mother. With a full lineup 2019 was a busy year with learning and rehearsing and almost twenty-five song original setlist. February 2020, The Huntrs released their first professionally recorded single Locked And Loaded with a second single, released on St. Patrick’s Day, close behind.
