THE HUNTER EXPRESS - SHOULD HAVE COME ON SUNDAY


Should Have Come On Sunday is the second album from Brad Ellis, working under the moniker The Hunter Express. Within its 10 tracks, this record weaves together a vivid story that spans suburban Australian life, mental health, family, love, loss and death. For fans of unpretentious songwriting with true depth and honesty, this album is a perfect listen.

Following it's release last week, The Hunter Express will be celebrating with an official album launch on Saturday, September 21st at The Grace Darling in Melbourne. 

Lead singles 'Bad Line' and 'Weekdays & Weekends' have been well supported across community radio, RAGE and triple j, with the latter being premiered to Australia live by Nkechi Anele on her program Roots n All

Led by frontman Brad Ellis, the current lineup of The Hunter Express sees Matt Dixon on guitar, bassist Jarrad Brown, percussionist Tyler Campbell, pianist Olaf Scott and the perfect accompanying vocals from Pia Nesvara.

This is the band’s second full-length release. Previously, The Hunter Express released their debut EP 'Bluestone Lane' in 2017 and quickly followed with their self-titled debut album in 2018. This record sees Ellis working with producer and musician Robert Muinos for the first time - a perfect collaboration we're sure to see more of in the future. 

'Should Have Come On Sunday' began with Ellis taking a collection of songs he had written in the summer of 2018 in a small shack in Olinda, Victoria to Muinos at Newmarket Studios. Together they worked on creating what is now a beautiful body of work. 

The Hunter Express' sophomore LP, Should Have Come On Sunday' is out now through Ground Records.
