Heartburn is caused by the reflux of acidic stomach fluids that enter the lower end of the esophagus, an ailment which a childhood friend’s mother referred to as having “hot pipes”. This is our name, our town is Nashville, Tennessee, and you are reading about us right now. We have been together for four years. Some of us are related, most of us have known each other since childhood, and all have played in multiple other bands you’ve never heard of. Two of us grew up in Alexandria, Kentucky, three of us are from Dayton, OH, and one by one we ended up in Nashville. After two self-published EP’s, our first album, The Deadly Poison, was released by Vacant Cage Records in the summer of 2005 with national distribution. We toured, wrote, honed, recorded, and have now birthed our second full-length offering, the self-titled Hotpipes. Hotpipes will be released on 2.27.07 on Liquid Panda Records out of Nashville. The album contains 11 tracks and clocks in at under 40 minutes. The second song has “fuck” in it, but you can’t really understand Jon when he says it. The last song has “love” in the title. We recorded quickly with Loney John Hutchins at The Teachers’ Lounge, whose many credits include the Mattoid releases as well as the Lylas’ Lessons for Lovers.
