Hot Hot Heat Has a New Label, New Album on the Way

Get yourself ready for a hot, hot summer, since Vancouver-based rockers Hot Hot Heat, who burst onto the scene in the early part of the last decade and became the hipster band of the moment with their debut longplayer, Make Up the Breakdown, will release Future Breeds, their first album in three years, through Dangerbird Records this summer.
Future Breeds follows up 2007’s Happiness Ltd.. Hot Hot Heat were previously signed to Sub Pop and then Sire/Warner Bros. before migrating over to Dangerbird. The band is firmly rooted in pop culture, as they have also made an appearance on Nickelodeon's Yo Gabba Gabba in 2008 and their tunes have been featured on an episode of House and an episode of Psych, as well as a Nokia commercial, so it’s obvious that despite no longer being backed by a major label, Hot Hot Heat have carved out enough of a niche for themselves that they'll fare just fine back in the indie label fiefdom. An exact release date for Future Breeds has not been revealed.
