Thought on Tracks favorites Hotfox shared a boss new video from their March excursion to SXSW. The video, below, features the band performing “Picnic” for the mobile video blog JamintheVan. The track is one of the stronger songs that the band has inked since releasing their debut LP You, Me, and the Monster last summer. After a few seconds of collective dissonance, Hotfox gets down to business offering up a sound so large that it rattles the van’s walls. It’s always cool when a band chooses to explode beyond the constraints of a small setting rather than conform their sound.

It comes with great honor for the team at Thought on Tracks to promote one of our favorite bands as they get an opportunity to cement themselves in influencer’s minds during the SXSW festivities in Austin, Texas this Friday. Hotfox will take part in MOKB’s Vaya con Tacos 2 (RSVP) that features blog favorites Gardens & Villa, Waters, Father John Misty, and Free Energy to name a few. As the winner of the JanSport contest earlier this year, the band will also headline Sonicbids’ showcase (RSVP) at Maggie Mae’s at 11:30 AM, that same day. I am extremely excited for the Hotfox crew and can’t wait to see what others outside our scene have to say about our local, emerging band. Below you can check out a video for “Sexbitten Dog” from the talented folks at Midwest Underground. This track is unreleased and could be a sneak preview of some of their new work. It was recorded at Hotfox’s recent performance at The Bishop Bar in Bloomington. Get an early feel for what people will be talking about as Hotfox leaves SXSW with what is likely to be a great first impression.

If you are a regular of Thought on Tracks, you know that we gushed over their debut You, Me, and the Monster. This record not only gained a lot of attention from this blog, but several others outside of Indianapolis. Coming fresh off their selection to be part of the JanSport/Sonicbids SXSW Showcase. The band will also be one of 24 bands featured in the State of Music Showcase at J.Black’s on Wednesday, March 14. Hotfox has been extremely busy at work recording their next project. This week the band released a list of new songs that they have recorded.

Time of release is unknown, but I can promise you that we will keep you posted with any further information that we receive. Until then, go insane with “Tombstone Teeth” off their debut. Bloomington residents may look for Hotfox at a house party near 2nd and Henderson this evening.
