UK grunge punks HOT MASS share new video for “A Literal Century”

1 min read

Hailing from Swansea, UK, HOT MASS take their eclectic taste in music and throw it all into the melting pot to create some melodic, grunge fuelled, indie popping, jaw dropping, punk bangers awash with defiant upbeat lyricism. The band just premiered their new music video for the song “A Literal Century” and you can watch it right here!

Hot Mass released their debut record ‘Nervous Tensions’ in 2016, a record filled to the brim with raw energy and young ideas. In the wake of this, Hot Mass embarked on successful tours around the UK and Europe supporting bands such as The Menzingers, Iron Chic, Toys that Kill and The Bouncing Souls.

Hot Mass are now back with their 2nd album, titled ‘Happy, Smiling and Living the Dream’. Featuring twelve melodic and poignant songs, the album expertly combines driving rhythms with their know-how of infusing catchy melodies. The sounds of early college rock, 90’s grunge and UK punk particularly shine through on this record. The band feel more self-assured than ever and play with themes of joy and melancholy, with relatable lyrics that take a questioning, satirical and sometimes apathetic stance on the world, current affairs and modern lifestyles.

Hot Mass

“Happy, smiling and Living the Dream” will be released in Autumn 2022 via Brassneck Records (UK), This Charming Man Records (EU), The Black Numbers (US). The first single, Astroturf, will be released Friday 22nd July 2022. Pre-order HERE
