Hot Hot Heat are planning a fairly swift follow up to 2005’s ‘Elevator’, having written a lot of new material whilst on tour. Frontman Steve Bays has told MTV that the band hope to record the new songs in the spring with a view to a 2006 release.
Bays told MTV: “We’re kind of staggering the touring a bit at this point just to write more songs for our next record which I think we’re all excited about. And then maybe test ‘em out just on tour, maybe in February, and then hopefully be in the studio for the spring.”
Drummer Paul Hawley added “We wrote a song in Spain, we wrote a song in Chicago…and when you write lyrics on the road they tend to be more psychedelic. There’s one song that we started at the beginning of this tour and I think we’ve jammed it every day. It’s been played all around the world in many, many different places and I think that’s kind of a cool thing.”
