It has been one hell of a ride for Ballarat darlings the Hunting Grounds, so you can probably forgive them for packing away their gear. The six-piece has announced that they will be calling it a day after a final run of shows. Their statement reads: “After almost 10 years of us playing together, two EPs, one album, hundreds of shows and countless great times, we have decided that this year will be the last year of Hunting Grounds. Without the incredible support of all of you this wouldn’t have been possible. We love you all, thanks for listening. Now let’s all go out for some frosty chocolate milkshakes.” The Barwon Club, Geelong – November 21 & The Karova, Ballarat – December 5.
