Hot Hot Heat Announce Final Album, Drop New Single "Kid Who Stays In The Picture"

Canadian indie pop/rock band Hot Hot Heat have announced they will released their self-titled, and final album, on June 24 through Culvert Music.

The band's fifth studio album and follow-up to 2010's Future Breeds, was written between 2011 and 2014, and rather than continuing on the experimental tangent of Future Breeds, it apparently hears them channelling their first two albums for inspiration. As a result, the album is said to be full of poppy hooks and energetic dance-rock riffs, all of which was captured to tape by producer (and frontman Steve Bays' Mounties bandmate) Ryan Dahle.

The band have also dropped the album's first single "Kid Who Stays In The Picture". Pre-order your copy here, check out the tracklist and listen to the new track below.

Hot Hot Heat Tracklist:
01. Kid Who Stays In The Picture

PRISMA - Band of the Month April 2016

This month's BOTM on Kool Rock Radio is Switzerland-based indie rock four-piece PRISMA.

The band's line-up consists of:

Paulo Mendoza (Guitars/Vocals)
Dennis Benavides (Guitars/Synthesizer/Vocals)
Mauro Boffa (Bass/Guitar/Vocals)
Fabian Ranzoni (Drums)

There is an element of unpredictability about Prisma. In fact, the band’s beginnings could come straight out of a vintage rock ’n’ roll novel: two Peruvian brothers, an Argentinian and a young Swiss met in Europe, discovered common musical aspirations, formed a group and started producing their own music!

Prisma was founded in 2011, when brothers Paulo and Dennis chose to embrace their musical fate and live their dream of forming a rock group. Together they pooled their rich musical creativity and merged their talents and enthusiasm. From a young age they had developed a philosophy that music should come from people playing instruments. Those natural vibrant sounds contrasted with the synthetic and digital noise that was coming out of computers. Their philosophy was that no machine could ever replace the mystic experience of a live rock ’n’ roll band on stage.

The brothers join forces with Mauro, a talented Argentinian bass player, who shared their musical philosophy as well as their South American roots. Finally after some auditions, none other than Fabian, a Swiss cheeky-cool drummer, completed their line-up.

Last month the band released their self-titled debut album, and their next ambition is to hit the road and make all rock ’n’ roll lovers worldwide dance, scream, sing and shout.

Buy Prisma' s/t debut album here, and watch the video for their current single "Prophet (Take A Look At The Sky)" below.
