Dan & The Gummy Hunters has just released the video for ‘Empty Hands’, the track is taken off the last album released by the band entitled “Memory Lane“. The song talks about falling in love at a young age and having to deal with disappointments and losses, and how difficult it becomes at this stage of life, where everything seems to go wrong.
“Memory Lane” has ten tracks, nine in English and one in Portuguese. The name of the disc brings compositions that cover the last 10 years of Dan‘s life – his daily grind, relationships with couples, family, friends, parents and children. Very influenced by the Californian punk of the 90s, the album is a full plate for those who like the style and follow bands like Descendents, No use for a name, All, Millencolin and Social Distortion. The disc art was created by illustrator Cristiano Suarez.

Very present in the brazilian punk scene, Dan, decided to compose again with the emergence of the pandemic and covid-19, and the result of the lockdown that was lived for several months in Brazil. After composing two songs on the guitar, he decided to invest in the purchase of a new guitar, interface and reference monitors, where he recorded the songs with electronic drums in logic pro x.
At the end of June, Dan already had some songs ready and contacted producer Davi Pack from Hill Valley studios in Porto Alegre, to start recording four tracks, thus releasing the first single, “Let it go“, which led him to record 6 more tracks, recording a full Album with ten songs for the project.
Dan & The Gummy Hunters, is a solo project by Daniel Sant ‘Ana. The idea came to facilitate the logistics of shows and the musicians to change according to the region and tour time. In North America, Dan has the support of the Canadian band Crash The Gates, and in Brazil he has the support of musicians such as Davi Package and Matheus Menezes.
Dan & The Gummy Hunters forsee going on tour in future with other musicians, already in Brazil and South America where shows are held at weekends – the project will have to however include more musicians to bring the tour about.
Recording of the Video: ‘Empty Hands‘ – Dan & The Gummy Hunters feature Willson Durand (Drums), Vitor Pequeno (bass) and Matheus Menezes (guitar).
