Biography

“THE HOT SHOWERS ARE A POWDER-KEG OF POTENTIALl […] AND THIS BAND’S NAME WILL BE ON MARQUEES ALL OVER THE COUNTRY IN NO TIME.”
- Lithium Magazine

Combining guitar textures from the 80’s college boom with the energy of punk rock, Montreal’s The Hot Showers have been a fixture on the Montreal scene for almost a decade, slinging out their particular brand of rock ‘n roll excess through the province’s bars and showrooms. From thundering, primitive garage riffs to sun-baked Americana, The Hot Showers take the audience through a sea of influences that may well double as a beer-soaked visit to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Who says you shouldn’t wear your influences on your sleeve?

Sharing guitar duties are Frank Dupont and singer Michel O’Narey while drummer Shawn Van De Peppel keeps the beat, and bassist Melissa Nicolosi makes sure the rhythm is fresh and steady. Each member brings something unique to the mix, from Dupont’s skate- punk riffage, Van De Peppel’s metal-powered drumbeats and O’Narey’s bluesy howl to Nicolosi’s hard rock leanings.

2013 will mark the release of The Hot Showers’ second album, following the release of their debut Memories of Melodies in 2009. Through the years they’ve shared the stage with international stars like Frank Turner and Jesse Malin, as well as local favorites such as Grimskunk, Les Prostiputes and The Brains. They’ve appeared alongside legendary acts like Hot Water Music, Wayne Kramer (of MC5) and Less Than Jake on a charity compilation titled Music 4 Cancer: The Cause and contributed their talents to the musical score of a CBC short film. Their polyvalent love for the world of music has seen them adapt to the toughest crowds and most unusual situations.
