Tomorrow, the latest signee to Silver Lake's Dangerbird records, Hot Hot Heat will release their first album since 2007's Happiness Ltd
. The new album Future Breeds
(not to be mistaken with Swedish metalheads Meshuggah's Future Breed Machine
) has been called a reboot, and HHH told the Weekly
that they didn't just want to make a record for the airwaves. "We're basically treating Hot Hot Heat like an unknown band. It's a weird world right now, and you can't take anything for granted. We just don't want to be known as a radio band," keyboardist Steve Bays said. This week, see if Hot Hot Heat is the same band that blew up in 2002 with the great Make Up the Breakdown
, as they begin their June Wednesday night residency at the Bootleg theater.
Wanna see the full lineup of HHH's new video for "21@12," and free MP3, and not to mention their upcoming show line up in the L.A. area?
(PLUS a Future Breed Machine video, 'cause it's metal Monday!)
