The Hot Damn! say – pop punk is officially back! Hailed as the ‘colourful chaos’ of rock, the British four piece share their brand new single ‘Live Laugh Love’, out everywhere now.
‘Live Laugh Love’ is described by the band as “a giant dose of good time, cheesy rock”. A sugar-infused power pop anthem GUARANTEED to make you smile – it was recorded in Doncaster and mixed in Australia – and is accompanied by a sickly sweet video shot at a caravan park on the Costa del Morecambe (Lancashire).
Speaking of the track, Singer-guitarist Gill Montgomery says:
Back to normal from riding the epidemic train, and discovering the joy of “reliving” your life felt like a very fitting message for our new single. Making plans and making the most of things in general, and not giving a crap is more important than ever. It’s a parody of those kitsch yet cringeworthy motivational signs you would find in cheap and cheerful homeware shops, which were very popular in the late noughties. Notwithstanding the irony… we wanted to bring back the essence of the message with a humorous twist.
We want people to embrace the cheese! It really is a case of a full on slap of stilton in the face! To have people reflect and move on from the miserable times, and just embrace the other side with guns blazing. Shake off the doom and gloom in the news and just enjoy whatever it may be! Life! Love? New music! Positivity!
Citing influences from The Darkness and The Struts to the likes of Blink 182 and Wet Leg, these four feisty ladies are no strangers to the music scene. Bursting on to the UK circuit in 2021, The Hot Damn! have since completed multiple UK tours as well making memorable appearances at Steelhouse, Firestorm and Loverocks festivals.
Debut single ‘Dance Around’ achieved A-list Planet Rock radio play, as well as being shortlisted for Classic Rock ‘Tracks of The Week’. Follow up single ‘I Didn’t Like You Anyway’ became a firm favourite on the airwaves thanks to Planet Rock and Kerrang! radio A-list airplay as well as support from BBC Introducing and Primordial radio.
With their debut album set for release early 2023, get ready for your life to become a WHOLE LOT more colourful… very soon!
