    Live: Hot Panda HOT PANDA "Vancouver weirdos turn Destroyer's blues into noisy brilliance with big fuzz, fucked beats, body of brains." - SPIN Mag Your favourite quirky indie party band is growing up, and theyre kinda pissed off about it. So, theyve turned to every suburban teenagers refuge: distortion pedals and sarcasm. The targets are wide in Hot Pandas furious but refreshingly human upcoming release Bad Pop, a deluge of raw punk rock energy, warm analog psychedelia, and cheeky nihilistic musings on music festivals, fast food, and the loneliness of adulthood. Building on three critically-acclaimed full-length releases on Mint Records Go Outside (2012), How Come Im Dead (2010), and Volcano, Bloody Volcano (2009) the upcoming record is a grungy call-to-action for fuzz and distortion, a return to massive guitar sounds and smashing drums, and an homage to and exploration of the album format. Producer Devon Lougheed (Hey Ocean!, Smashing Satellites) channeled the bands wild onstage energy into a focused and heavy-hitting rock sound that, while nostalgic for times past, remains cutting-edge and contemporary. Hot Pandas live show is two-hundred percent fun and fury; theyve driven fve tour vans into the ground with over a dozen tours of North America, several European runs, festivals (including SXSW, Primavera, CMJ andReeperbahn), and support slots for acts such as Japandroids, Andrew WK, Tokyo Police Club and Art Brut. Live, frontman Chris Connelly is alternatively heartwarming and menacing, like a happy Kurt Cobain or a pissed-off Weird Al. Superstar multi- instrumentalist Catherine Hiltz is a captivating punk- rock bar-brawling St. Vincent. Drummer Aaron Klassen was raised on a steady diet of Bonham and Grohl, and plays like the snare just said something about his momma. This is an older and possibly wiser Hot Panda. The fuzz pedals are way fuzzier, the songs are even sharper, and the tongue is practically bursting through the cheek. Hot Panda may have grown up, but one thing is for sure: theyre still having a fuckload of fun. CAREER HIGHLIGHTS: - Volcano Bloody Volcano debuted at #1 on the Earshot! Canadian College charts. - How Come Im Dead won Album Of The Year, 2010 Edmonton Music Awards. - Go Outside #19 on the CMJ College Radio Charts. - Start Making Sense was an iTunes track of the week. - Triple drum-off on the latest release featuring Ali Siadat from Mother Mother and Pat Steward from The Odds/Bryan Adams. FOR FANS OF: Pavement, Modest Mouse, The Pixies, Nirvana, METZ, Mudhoney, The White Stripes, Tame Impala.

    I love it! You guys are the shit... And the newest addition to my impenetrable itunes library. ;) As to whatever you're "plotting," you could at least try and swing within a 10 mile radius of NYC. Anyway I wish you all great success and hopeful travels. Here's mud in your eye. - Eric
