Hot Mulligan continue their hot streak of interesting release. Pilot, the band’s debut full length, is streaming exclusively below. Opening with the immediacy of “Deluxe Capacitor,” the album’s breathtaking songwriting takes center stage and never looks back. The group have some lavish song titles (“All You Wanted By Michelle Branch” and “-whispers- Thank You”) but the group’s efforts never lack in emotional urgency. The biting yells of “The Soundtrack To Missing A Slam Dunk” are backed with a steady drum beat, allowing for the song to remain infectious with a distinct sound. Take a listen for yourself below, and pick up Pilot on March 23rd via No Sleep Records.
The youthful and relentless Hot Mulligan are a four-piece rock band from northern Michigan. Beginning in 2014, they have built a profile by touring country-wide incessantly. Spanning hundreds of out of town shows over the last few years, they’ve gained the attention of a larger fan base combining elements of emotional rock and fierce pop-punk riffs. In 2017, the band re-released the acclaimed EP Opportunities with No Sleep Records.
Now birthing Pilot, the band’s first full length record, which is due March 23 of this year through No Sleep Records. This record—containing their finest tracks—is a timeless and remarkable piece of work and an adaptable composition. Hot Mulligan mends the bridge of musicianship, lyricism, and unforgettable hooks. The driving guitar riffs, sweet-sounding synth and distinctive display of percussion ensure the records prominence amongst other 2018 releases.
Hot Mulligan will be touring non-stop and with determination in 2018—supporting acts such as Knuckle Puck, Boston Manor, Free Throw, and many more.
