IT’S ALIVE! A NEW BLOG POST!

3 Feb

Well, it was indeed time for an update, wasn’t it?

I’ll start by saying that we’re looking at a very promising 2012. We’ve spent much of 2011 writing new songs, and adapting to our new-ish 3-piece lineup. What this means is that half the songs have Mickey on guitar with Frank on bass, and for the other half they switch it up. It’s been working remarkably well, and it allows for a more streamlined songwriting process.

We currently have 16 new songs that we’re happy with (we’ll never mind the other ones for your sake), and we intend to go into a studio soon to record what will be our 2nd full length album. The 16 songs won’t all make the cut due to stylistic differences between some of them (we have a surf song, a song about a dead oil baron, garage rock, slow songs, and one I particularily like called “I Don’t, Bitch” – we do not endorse logic, it seems). We really want to make a tight, linear record that flows front to back in the vein of The Arcade Fire and Sigur Ros… juuuuust kidding. We’re not artists, people, we just like to drink beer and play rock and roll. Naked, with whipped cream.

We recently started to realize that a lot of the songs could be complemented by a 2nd guitar, which is why we’re activally looking for a new bassist. If you know anyone or you’re interested yourself, just email us at band@thehotshowers.com!

Because of this, it’s been a slow season for shows, but the 2nd half of 2012 should have our beautiful faces showing up in many a different city. We also recently relocated our jam space, and it’s awesome!

So with that, we should have more news soon, and once we hit the studio, we’ll have plenty of pics for ya.

New News!

14 Nov

Hello there!
Though we haven’t posted many updates, we’ve been keeping busy!
We currently are working on over 15 new songs for a new EP, followed by the 2nd album, which we’re hoping for a Spring 2012 release. We’ll soon be doing some pre-production on them, and are looking into which studio to record in. It’ll be a completely different process than with Memories Of Melodies, and we’re really looking forward to it.

If you haven’t heard yet, our 2nd annual Movember show is announced. It will take place Saturday December 3 at Pub St-Ciboire in Montreal, with The Ravens joining us. The day before, on dec. 2nd, we’ll be playing with The Midnite Lovers in Trois-Riviere for the new EP release party. Should be a very healthy weekend.

Oh, and we’re buying a shooter to the 3 people with the most awesome Mo’s on December 3, so make sure you let that beautiful ‘stache grow for a good cause and some potential free booze!

Another project worth mentioning is a few months ago, one of our shows was filmed and recorded live for an upcoming Music 4 Cancer DVD. It should hit the shelves also around Spring 2012, and we’re really looking forward to it!

It’s been a hell of a year for us, and we’re looking forward to ending it on a high note, with a lot coming up in the next year.

Cheers to you, and see ya at the show!!!!
