Hikes @ Armoury, De! Lilt Ep Release says
Hikes is a band of friends formed in 2010 by Nathan Wilkins and Will Kauber. The two found in each other a kinship based around their shared tension between a youth spent playing in hardcore and metal bands and a recent move to Austin,Tx where they were surrounded and inspired by the booming local scene of indie, folk-pop and electronic music. The duo began to forge their signature mix of heavy and soft styles by playing local shows and trading off between guitar and drums before finding in permanent drummer Chris Long their perfect collaborative partner. Soon after, Kauber left the band and went on to help found art collective and record label Raw Paw who would later release the band’s first two albums as Wilkins and Long continued towards the shared vision of new sonic territory. After adding guitarist Claire Puckett and bassist Colin Jenkins, Hikes released their first full length album “Friends” in 2013 on which they toured nationally and gained a small, but devoted following. Puckett would go on to leave the band to focus playing in the orchestral rock band Mother Falcon as Kauber rejoined the ranks to finalize the band’s lineup. Hikes would release their second, self-titled full length in 2014 and tour heavily, nationally and internationally, before recording their forthcoming album Lilt with legendary guitarist and producer Takaaki Mino (of the band Toe) in Tokyo.
