Way back in November Hot Hot Heat announced that they were in fact still around and prepping a new album of dance floor ready hits. Well now the band is ready to drop said LP, Future Breeds, next week on Dine Alone Records. Latest single from the upcoming album “Zero Results” shows even more promise of a grown up dance pop sound from Hot Hot Heat.

The guys in Hot Hot Heat have been relatively quiet since their 2007 release Happiness Ltd. While I may be in the minority, I actually enjoyed several songs on that release and I’m excited to hear that the guys are back with new material for 2010. So here’s a taste of that new material below with a song called “Future Breeds” which sees the band shedding a bit of their poppy/dancey sound we used to love. Maybe the guys will mature a bit and find a new and more grown up sound. Head over to SPIN for another new song and more details on the new year’s release.
