The band are working on their second album…

Hot Hot Heat guitarist DANTE DECARO has left the band.

Decaro finished work on the Canadian outfit’s new album, the follow-up to last year’s debut ‘Make Up The Breakdown’, before going public about his departure.

The band released the following statement:


“Dante has decided to leave Hot Hot Heat. We respect his decision, will miss him and he will always be a friend of the band. While Dante made his decision a while ago, he still co-wrote and recorded the new album with us and is as proud of it as we are.

“No decisions have been made as to who will fill the position. For now, we are focusing on wrapping up the new record for release next year and touring as soon as possible.”
