OCTOBER 2017 BAND OF THE MONTH
HOT PINK HANGOVER
Mercy Danger -
Hot Pink Hangover is a cupcake filled with dynamite! Their whimsical lyrics, on-stage shenanigans, and class-clown personae create a playground that would make any elementary prankster envious. Hot Pink Hangover designs experiences that are simply… fun, appealing to the escapist within us all! By all means, go make a difference in the world, but when the day is done, Hot Pink Hangover will be there to pull you on their little pink wagon to Hell.
“You will want to listen to this EP over and over again. Each track is
worthy of being a single.”
“This has a really good punk sound to it…"
Hot Pink Hangover has been enjoying the grassroots promotion of their
debut EP, “Wasted”, which explores a dystopian lifestyle viewed through
rose-colored lenses. These songs have spawned a series of music videos
which depict their stories in laughable extremes. Hazard Town is set in a
radioactive wasteland in which an unsuspecting scientist sporting a hazmat
suit is stalked by a blood-thirsty mutant. Wasted Girl showcases a racy
school teacher instructing a drone-like class in a step-by-step procedure
to public inebriation.

Us has impressively sold 10,000 copies worldwide since release and landed
