The Hunter Brothers to join country superstars Paul Brandt, Jess Moskaluke and High Valley for The Journey Tour on January 25 in Abbotsford, BC
January 7, 2018 – Four-time CCMA Award nominees, three-time SCMA Award winners Hunter Brothers will release their sophomore album, STATE OF MIND, across all platforms on January 25, the first night of multicity, high-profile “The Journey Tour 2019”.
STATE OF MIND comes on the heels of their debut album, Getaway, which featured several successful country radio singles, including two that went Top 10, “Born and Raised” and “Those Were The Nights”.
“Lost”, the first single and corresponding video from STATE OF MIND had an impressive debut as the #1 Selling Canadian Single the week of Nov 12, and it was the #1 Most Added at Canadian Country Radio in the last week of November. Featuring the brothers’ brilliant harmonies, it captures the excitement of being “lost” in a new and overwhelming love.
Continually inspired by their everyday surroundings, including daily life involving family and farming, the Hunter Brother’s sophomore album STATE OF MIND showcases the magic that can be found in the seemingly mundane. It works to fuse together the brothers’ genuine positive outlook on life through impactful tracks such as “Silver Lining” and highlights their profound love and gratitude for both life and community, through songs like “Want” and “Northern Lights”.
In the lead up to the album release, three diverse tracks will be pre-released consecutively, which showcase the depth of the group as artists and their compelling vocal dimensions; including “I Still Fall” on December 7, 2018, “Next Year”, out on January 4, 2019 and “Train” set for release on January 11, 2019. “Next Year” is a timely, thought-provoking, mid-tempo song that serves to remind us to live in the present moment, which was co-written by The Hunter Brothers, Seth Mosley, and Brad Rempel. “Train” is a catchy, upbeat song about racing home to be with the one that you love, while “I Still Fall” is a touching ballad about continuing to fall over and over again for your significant other.
The record was produced by GRAMMY® Award-winners Seth Mosley, Mike “X” O’Connor (for Full Circle Music) with the Hunter Brothers also involved, with producer credits on several tracks.
“Life takes us down many different roads, and through various seasons. The last two years, time has been spent between travelling the nation, performing on a multitude of stages, driving up and down dusty fields, and changing dirty diapers,” said Ty Hunter. “It’s meant a lot of shifting gears, and along with that, the highs, lows, and many changes in our State Of Mind. This album is a compilation of stories that reflects those shifts in thinking, and we can’t wait for listeners to come along for the ride.”

The must-see group of brothers was born and raised in Shaunavon, Saskatchewan, Luke, J.J., Ty, Brock and Dusty — a.k.a. The Hunter Brothers – grew up caring about three things: hockey, music and farming. When they weren’t working the fields, the five siblings spent summers singing gospel across Canada and the U.S., while winters were for hockey, playing for the likes of Kelowna Rockets and, eventually, the Edmonton Oilers. Following their debut album release, the brothers have been keeping the family tradition alive: hitting the road when they’re not riding the tractor, at times ballooning to as many as 21 family members in the same bus.
Bringing together the best of Canadian Country Music, #TheJourneyTour will kick off in Abbotsford, British Columbia on January 25th, and wrap-up 22 stops later in Sudbury, Ontario on February 24th.
