live from Mount Zoomer

I was just sent these two videos of Treasure Hunt performing at the Mount Zoomer studio in Montreal. We’ve been told that Treasure Hunt was basically a short lived project and that they may record something eventually to document the band’s existence. Things are on hold as everyone in the band is going to be too busy with their respective projects over the next several months. We will of course post here when we have any more news.

Sorry for the delay in news folks, i’ve been traveling for a month and finally have a real computer to use. I have a few videos to post and share. The first one is the brand new Sunset Rubdown video for ‘Black Swan’. This is their first ever “music video”.

The second video is from a recent Treasure Hunt show. Hopefully we will get more news on Treasure Hunt soon. Thanks to Vanslyde and for sending us the link.

The third video is of Handsome Furs playing in Shaghai, China. Incredible. Check it out here

I’ll be back in the states in one week, so check back then for more news and a whole bunch of tour photos from Handsome Furs!

It’s two basses and two drummers. They buy diazepam xanax don’t have anything recorded yet, but they do have some shows lined up for September with Young Galaxy.
