It’s been about 5 years since the last release from Philly’s Hoots & Hellmouth released new music. They were singing about a wrecking ball a full year before that other popular song about wrecking balls came out, but it’s been quiet on all fronts since then. Which makes In The Trees a hotly anticipated record for fans of the band like myself. Yesterday they put out the first video to introduce us to new music. The song is called “Diction,” and it’s soulful and emotional and makes great use of the vocal range lead singer Sean Hoots possesses.
In The Trees comes out October 28. The band will start touring October 5, with a date here in Chicago on October 9th at Tonic Room. For all dates, click here.
