Hot 8 Brass Band
New Orleans’ Grammy-nominated Hot 8 Brass Band will accompany the release of their fifth album, ‘On The Spot’ due late March, via Tru Thoughts.
The new record has its roots firmly in live performance, and in true Hot 8 style it pairs hard-hitting, heart-on-sleeve sentiment with party-fuelling beats, hooks and grooves. ‘On The Spot’ refers to the glorious, rare moment in a New Orleans parade when the band stops to take a break but keeps noodling with their instruments to please the crowd. Vibing and keeping the energy up, when they’re completely in the moment they sync up and the magic happens – a new tune is created. On The Spot. Buzzing with the live, spontaneous synchronicity which has fuelled their development from the Second line parades of New Orleans to the forefront of the global scene over the last two decades, the new LP sees Hot 8 committing this spirit to record – and in the live arena the tunes are set to blow up.
