HUNG’s debut self-titled record will be released May 8th 2012 by ReThink Records, the new label founded by Chris Adler (Lamb of God) and The End Records.  The album features 10 tracks engineered and produced by Andy Abel and Lyris Hung at Abel Studios in Connecticut, with vocals tracked and produced by Ryan Kelly at MSR Studios and Nova Studios in New York City.
 
About the band: World-renowned violinist Lyris Hung (Bryan Adams, Indigo Girls, Trans-Siberian Orchestra), the band’s namesake, had known for a long time that she wanted to start a band focused on heavy music.  The tattoo clad, classically trained violinist (Juilliard / Columbia University) decided to bring this to fruition in early 2005.  A Craigslist ad and one fateful meeting later, HUNG was born. 
 
Jon Clark and Sam Roon (founder, SkullsNBones.com) had been playing together for many years, searching for musicians (including violinists) to play a unique style of progressive music.  Naturally when the call came in to play with Lyris, the decision was easy. 
 
Finding a singer took less than a year when Moscow native Dmitry Kostitsyn came in to front the band.  HUNG went through several drummers before adding the final piece to the puzzle with renowned Jazz / World Powerhouse Kenny Grohowski (Richie Ray, Bobby Cruz. Cassandra Wilson, Lonnie Plaxico).
 
HUNG’s sound was developed with the intention of blending technical proficiency with innovative songwriting while not being bound by any particular genre. 
 
HUNG’s unique sound is due, in part, to their unusual writing style.  The songs are created in layers allowing each member to add their individual affect one at a time before bringing it to the rehearsal studio to be molded together. This creative process is very intensive and meticulous but invites each band member to push the limits of their own boundaries.
 
The lyrical content of HUNG’s music often comes from religious or historical material and is heavily researched before being finalized.  Dmitry Kostitsyn will sometimes spend months becoming knowledgeable on a subject before creating a story based on it and then finally turns the story into lyrics. 
 
HUNG prides itself on being a phenomenal live band.  From the New England Metal & Hardcore Festival, to the Milwaukee Metalfest, HUNG lives and breathes for the stage.
