Event Description

Hot Hot Heat will release their third album for Sire Records on September 11, 2007, entitled Happiness LTD. The album is the band’s first since 2005’s well-received Elevator, which spawned the Modern Rock radio hits “Middle of Nowhere” and “Goodnight Goodnight”.

Hot Hot Heat began writing new material in January 2005, the very day they launched a globe-trotting tour to support Elevator. “We wanted this record to be written on the road,” says the band’s co-founder and frontman Steve Bays, “partly so the influences would be more varied, but also so we could test out the songs live before we recorded them. We wrote music everywhere — Spain, Japan, Australia, the U.K. — so each song has a different mood.” While the new album retains Hot Hot Heat’s trademark playful melodies and witty wordplay, Bays says that what started out as a modest, live-sounding effort ending up being the band’s most adventurous and experimental album yet. “It’s difficult to describe its overall musical direction, but if I had to choose two adjectives I’d go with ‘big’ and ‘aggressive,’” he says. “As a band, we got most excited about the over-the-top, epic-sounding songs, so we kept pushing the tracks that way. The album has its fair share of seedy club songs, but they are dirtier and darker.”

Hot Hot Heat played a handful of huge spring shows in Canada this year including a tour opening for The Killers which included sold arena shows in Calgary and Edmonton and also were a mainstage headliner at Vancouver's first ever V-Fest.
