Release Notes:

Montreal's Hot Springs don't want to be your Facebook friend. They don't care
about what haircut you have. They don't care about your blog. They simply want
to freak you out.

With more and more bands attempting to placate and sedate by mimicking current
trends, Hot Springs actually dare to bring something new to the table. Leaving
dance punk and current saveurs du jour in the dust, Hot Springs have completely
reinvented themselves with their first full length: Volcano. The album dishes
out a combo of perfect pop that sinks its fangs in, rock that doesn't stoop to
knuckle draggers, ballads that are fluff free, throws a flurry of psychedelia
into the mix (guaranteed to leave marks) and, yes - you can even dance to it.
Lead-off single, "Headrush", holds their contemporaries at arms-length with a
hard-rocking seventies vibe, hinting at Heart, with the piss and vinegar of the
Yeah Yeah Yeahs, still managing to distance themselves from the current crop of
bands hogging up the blogosphere, discovering Gang of Four for the first time.

All of the songs hang off the lyrical pearls and inventive vocal workout that
come straight from the gut of songstress Giselle Webber. Tracks, like "Tiny
Islands", bring the new-school pscych of Black Mountain to mind, with a dark and
brooding epic that pushes way past the pop-esque two and half minute mark. Other
songs like "Pink Money" and "Cellophane" hit like a mitt full of nickels,
perfectly combining rock muscle with pure-pop song craft, while the more genteel
side of the band shears through the most callous hearts on tracks like "Fog and
the Horn", that will have your goose bumps standing at attention. Along with
Montreal acts like The Besnard Lakes and Malajube, Hot Springs are among the
most exciting bands to spring from the second wave of the Montreal music
explosion, with Volcano quickly earmarked as one of the best records of 2007.

The Hot Springs' calling card was their 2005 independently-released pop-laden
e.p., Rock Partouze (which translates to "Rock Orgy"), yet the band would go
through many changes before putting together the gems that would make up their
first full length. Original drummer Karine Lauzon put down her sticks to
dedicate herself to motherhood and turned over her chair to long-time Montreal
scenester and drummer, Anne Gauthier. She and bassist Frederic Sauve clicked
immediately, bringing more ballast to their blast, while guitarist Remy
Nadeau-Aubin layered the songs with new flight. This would only be the beginning
of their metamorphosis, as Webber began exploring her darker side with
compositions that went far beyond the pop lexicon - letting the songs blow up to
epic proportions with their trademark pop still in tow, but with far more punch
this time around.

Produced by Jonathan Trimble Cummins (Bionic, Tricky Woo) and engineered by The
Besnard Lakes' Jace Lasek (Wolf Parade, Land of Talk), Hot Springs hunkered down
in Lasek's Breakglass studios, with additional tracking done at The Pines
studio, engineered by David Bryant (godspeed! You black Emperor, Jackie O
Motherfucker). They set out to make an eclectic record that was as equally light
as it is dark, epic as it is concise and diabolical as it is divine. Not an easy
task for sure, as most bands these days tend to just ape their singles over a
record, but Hot Springs are not exactly your average band. The final tracking
and mixing session of the record was completed outside of Montreal in the rural
environs of Farnham, Quebec in an ex-church/Masonic temple (La Petite Йglise),
under the watchful eye of Mark Lawson (Arcade Fire, Final Fantasy, The

The album is one thing, but Hot Springs prove that it was hardly just smoke and
mirrors and are indeed worth their salt in the live setting. If you take a
moment to google their name, you will be treated to a flurry of people frothing
at the mouth over their live performance. With no shows similar to another (some
sober, some drunk), the common thread is that the band is always able to garner
true brilliance, where everything threatens to fall off the tracks before
miraculously hugging the guardrail at the last minute. A recent scribe from
Exclaim magazine, who witnessed the band at 2007's NXNE festival in Toronto was
moved to write "Easily delivering the festival's most impact and giving me a new
favorite rock act, the band's consummate showmanship and ferocious energy was
unparalleled". Hot Springs live provoke and poke, while Webber's on-stage
persona is out to taste blood. The whirling dervish of Webber completely
commands the stage, pouring fire into her words while beating out chords on her
guitar as if they had just been caught breaking into her house.

Volcano refuses to just sleep walk through the lackadaisical hit parade or the
fickle fashionista underground. The Hot Springs' agenda is simple: they want to
deliver what is desperately missing in today's music industry - they want
revolution and they won't rest until they get it.

Отличный коллектив, спасибо!!!

Чтобы создать настоящее искусство, надо много страдать.
headrush звучит очень знакомо, будто уже где-то слышал. А в целом альбом не приедатся, а это можно и в плюс и в минус отнести. Хорошо.
horay horay horay!
Да, весьма бодрая группа. Вокал так вообще хорош, приятный очень.
