Squirrel Nut Zippers Hot As Ever

Touring for the first time in seven years, the Squirrel Nut Zippers return with festival gigs and headlining shows. The party begins in late June in Arizona and includes dates in Utah, California, Virginia and North Carolina.

This year marks the 20th anniversary of the band’s sophomore album Hot, which sold over 1.3 million copies. Founding members Jimbo Mathus and Chris Phillips decided to honor the album with a new stage show. Flying Neutrino’s singer Ingrid Lucia will be joining the duo along with several New Orleans musicians.

“The band has been quiet for long enough,” Phillips said. “Honestly the songs from such a unique and rambunctious catalog never get old on stage. When it was brought to my attention that 2016 was the 20th anniversary of Hot I knew the timing was right. We take great pleasure in the sense of togetherness we maintain with audiences that have such a wide age range – from young to old and those in between. Even the old are young at heart when they are at a Squirrel Nut Zippers show.”
