"This is top-notch roots rock”—Beehive Candy
“A gloriously grand new EP”—WXPN 88.5FM
“The album finds the band in fine form”—London Music Hall
PHILADELPHIA, PA – December 4, 2017 – Philadelphia roots rockers Hoots & Hellmouth will celebrate the release of Uneasy Pieces, their debut EP on The Giving Groove, with a hometown performance on December 15 at Philadelphia’s Union Transfer.
Uneasy Pieces, the sixth release by Hoots & Hellmouth, edges toward rock and soul with grit and grace. The band’s signature bluesy Americana sound forms the foundation, layered with fuzzy, reverb-y guitar and warm organ, offering easygoing grooves and upbeat hooks that belie the tension beneath. The album is released in limited-edition, hand-numbered black vinyl; MP3 and WAV downloads are available at thegivingroove.com.
In advance of the show, the band premieres a lyric video for its new single, "Down Part of Town," directed and produced by John Hutelmyer.
