The Frontier Touring Company is thrilled to announce the return of Canadian rockers Hot Hot Heat this January for headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney in support of their latest album Future Breeds.

These will be Hot Hot Heat’s only headline shows whilst the band are in Australia for Falls Festival and their explosive live performances will surely be amplified in the intimate spaces of Melbourne’s Corner Hotel and Sydney’s Factory Theatre.

The band, comprised of Steve Bays (Vocals/Keyboard), Luke Paquin (Guitar/Vocals), Louis Hearn (Bass) and Paul Hawley (Drums/Percussion) will perform songs from Future Breeds as well as hits from previous albums such as ‘Bandages’ and ‘Middle of Nowhere’.

Future Breeds is Hot Hot Heat’s fifth studio offering since their debut Make Up The Breakdown over a decade ago and has reaffirmed their place in the international indie rock scene since its release in June this year. Featuring infectious tracks such as ‘21 @ 12’, front man Bays explains;

“It had to be a freak show and a barrage of ideas that weren't over-thought to the point of being stripped away or streamlined. Sometimes the best moments are the ones that are redundant, pointless or meaningless because they can also symbolize freedom, youth and rebellion.”

Critics agree it is the band’s most exhilarating effort to date. Bursting with energy and spontaneity, Future Breeds showcases a return to Hot Hot Heat’s vibrant party rock that will surely translate into a performance that can’t be missed.

‘Hot Hot Heat crank the guitars and boost the synth squelch on their liveliest album since 2002's Make Up the Breakdown.’ - Spin

‘…It's what Hot Hot Heat do best, compact, unpredictable and delivered with the scalding energy of a band about to jump out of its own skin.’ - Pitchfork

Be sure to catch Hot Hot Heat this January, get your ticket to their exclusive headline shows early to avoid disappointment.
