Emerging Artist

This week we feature British alternative rock band The Hunna, who Debut at #15. After establishing themselves in England and hitting a few other European markets, the group has crossed the Atlantic to take a stab at America, putting pen to paper with 300 Entertainment.

Their single, You & Me, is charting at Alternative radio and they recently wrapped up a string of North American tour dates. They’ll swing around the UK in October before popping back to the States for a couple of gigs in NYC and LA.

With the album, 100, available now, and the track, Bonfire, in the wings they should have plenty of ammo to continue their fight for new fans.
