Hoax Hunters

A few years ago, PJ Sykes put down the guitar and picked up the camera, putting focus on his blossoming music photography career. Though the lens never took him far from the stage, he could only stay away for so long – through a few band “blind dates” collaborating with James O’Neill of Snowy Owls, and Tim Falen of Hot Dolphin and the Diamond Center, Hoax Hunters came into view.

Drawing comparisons to underground heroes like Minutemen, Husker Dü, and Dag Nasty, Hoax Hunters have been washing Richmond, VA and surrounding areas in feedback, drawing crowds for their infectious tunes, and their explosive and unhinged live shows.
