Don't call it a break-up; it's more like a "re-branding." Members of local punk outfit The Whore Moans have decided to retire their semi-scandalous moniker--and possibly change their sound, too.

According to a press release from Mt. Fuji Records, the band will now be called "Hounds of the Wild Hunt," a name that better reflects the "mentality, motivations, [and] the music" that the four members are currently making, which includes recording a new album this summer. It's not the first time the thrashy, explosive band has tried something new. At Bumbershoot 2009--under the title "Whore Moans Present: The Black Atom"--they performed with backup singers from the Cute Lepers and an organist and horns from the Hands to re-fashion their songs in a rockabilly style.

The band's last show as "The Whore Moans" will be July 3 at the re-opening of the Columbia City Theater. Full press release included here:

"After much debate and much deliberation Ryan Devlin, Jonny Henningson, Nikki O Anderson, and Jason Kilgore have decided to finally put The Whore Moans' name to rest. This decision was not easily made, but is due to a general feeling within the group that the current moniker does not accurately reflect its members' mentality, motivations, or the music that they are currently creating.

However, far from throwing in the towel, the quartet is picking up a new title and starting in on a new project, Hounds of the Wild Hunt. They have plans to go into the studio this summer and tour Europe in the fall.

The Whore Moans' last show will be held on July 3rd, 2010 at the grand opening of the Columbia City Theater. Performing with them will be Lesbian and Chinese. Come pay your final respects and see the Whore Moans one last time."
