Hot Lunch, the San Francisco-based band whose music Thrasher described as “a blast of ‘60s acid rock seemingly unearthed after decades of rock ’n’ roll mediocrity,” releases the Slappy Sunday EP on March 31.
“We always welcome the opportunity to work with bands early in their careers,” explained Jeri Yoshizu, manager of sales promotions at Scion. “Hot Lunch is exactly the type of artist we like to align ourselves with: smart, talented and hard working.”
Hot Lunch’s history with Scion Audio Visual extends back to the band’s origins with the quartet having played Scion Rock Fest 2013, Scion Rock Show in Los Angeles and Scion Rock Fest 2014. The Bay Area band was also part of the recent Riley Hawk curated Northwest Blow Out EP, with the song “Uprooted” (https://soundcloud.com/scionav/hot-lunch-uprooted?in=scionav/sets/riley-hawk-northwest-blow-out-ep-scion-av) and previously offered up the song “There’s Nothing Like Revenge for Getting Back at People” (https://soundcloud.com/scionav/theres-nothing-like-revenge?in=scionav/sets/a) via a limited edition 7-inch single.
“We’re beyond stoked about this latest batch of tunes,” said Hot Lunch drummer Rob Alper. “Both structurally and sonically they’re true to Hot Lunch form, but we can’t help feel that this five-headed beast is of a new breed. Born of an all night rock ‘n’ roll house party? Or following a ferocious Sunday curb-skating session? We know not from whence it came. We’re honored to continue working with Scion A/V to bring high-energy punk ‘n’ roll music to the people! The Slappy Sunday EP is up-to-the-very-minute Hot Lunch in all its fuzzy, monstrous glory!”
