The Hot Sprockets
Dublin, County Dublin
The Hot Sprockets are five blood brothers from Dublin City, drawn together by their mutual love of Rock 'n' Roll. Take some good-time revolutionary spirit, add a pinch of psychedelic flavour, simmer it down with some Indie Soul and you are now somewhere close to the cosmic vibe of The Hot Sprockets.
They have been featured on National TV a number of times over the last year, on stations such as RTE1, RTE2, TV3, 3e, and TG4, and the music video for Soul Brother was playlisted on 'Rage' - an ABC Channel in Australia.
AIB Bank and Bulmers (aka Magners) are among some of the companies which have used their songs for major ad campaigns, both in Ireland and abroad. Most recently, Heineken used their music for an ad campaign in Switzerland.
Sophomore album Brother Nature received critical acclaim around the globe, shooting straight into the top 10 of the National Irish Charts.
They’ve performed at Glastonbury (UK), Eurosonic (NL), Greenman (UK), Zwarte Cross (NL), Kansas City Irish Fest (USA), Boomtown (UK), Fusion (DE), Latitude (UK), Indie-Week Toronto (CAN), Electric Picnic and countless other big and small festivals around Ireland, Europe, Canada and the UK.
As well as this, they have embarked on numerous successful tours of Spain, Portugal, Germany, Netherlands, USA, Canada and the UK.
Currently, The Hot Sprockets have just finished their third studio album 'Dream Mover', which was produced and recorded by Dave “Skip” Christophers, and mixed by Charlie Russell (Jamiroquai, Kasabian, The Strypes). The album marks a huge leap forward for this independent band.
When it comes to performing live, the Sprockets' take no-prisoners, white-hot, bone-breaking approach is lighting a fire under men and women of all tastes and flavours. With this new record being unleashed in 2017, you better get ready for the ride because this is more than a band; it’s a force of nature.
