The Hot Melts release second EP & tour with Eagles of Death Metal

Not only are The Hot Melts set to release their second EP, Edith, on March 9th, they are also confirmed support for Eagles of Death Metal (Josh Homme's other band) on their UK tour. (Is this another bunch of "indie hopefuls" after the heart of a certain ex-MTV/ current Radio 1 presenter? That's the only Edith we can think of...)

From the press release:

‘Edith’ is an adrenaline fuelled foot stomper and the logical follow-up single to the band’s excellent debut 7” (I Wish I Had Never) Been In Love’ and proves beyond a shadow of a doubt, that Will Baylis certainly knows a good tune, when he sings ones.

If The Hot Melts were to have a New Year resolutions, it would be… ‘Let the good times roll!’

And it’s official… The Hot Melts will be the main support on the forthcoming Eagles Of Death Metal tour at the tail end of March and early April. These dates will follow a rotating headline tour with This City, Sons Of Albion and Canterbury in February starting the Melts off on what’s set to be a very busy 2009 for the boys from The Wirral!
