Hotspur Gear Up for Debut Album Release

hotspurWashington D.C. natives, Hotspur have set a June 23, 2009 release date for their debut album titled, You Should Know Better By Now, produced by Bryan Russell (Envy On The Coast, Straylight Run) mixed by Paul Leavitt (Circa Survive, All Time Low, Senses Fail).  The band will support the release with a national tour.

Taking unabashed punk-rock intensity and dance floor energy, boxing it up into chords and melodies, then spraying on a shiny pop veneer and dropping a Korg Triton on it, Hotspur can be more succinctly described as catchy as hell.
 
The band, Joe Mach (vocals and guitar), Dave Trichter (piano/keys), Evan Anderson (guitar), Coop Cooper (bass) and Scott Robinson (drums) has been compared to the likes of Muse, All American Rejects, The Fray and Fall Out Boy.
