Hotspur, voted “New Artist of the Year" by the Washington Area Music Association, recently released their second full-length album titled, “You Should Know Better By Now”.

In October 2009, Hotspur won the nationwide fan vote on MTV’s program, “The Freshmen”, for its video, “Chandelier”, defeating competition from major-label artists across several genres. This video was placed in mtvU’s regular rotation for the Fall. MTV.com deemed the band, “buzzworthy”, and recommended that viewers “keep them on your radar.” In addition, the “Chandelier” single has received strong support on a number of East Coast rock radio stations.

Hotspur was also selected for Taco Bell's “Feed the Beat” program, along with other notable acts as All-American Rejects, Boys Like Girls, and Owl City.

Alternative Press featured Hotspur in its August 2009 issue, informing their loyal readers: “Hotspur combine intricate piano and heartfelt melodies with enough electronics to keep pop-punk and club kids content.”

Singer/songwriter Joe Mach and keyboardist Dave Trichter formed Hotspur while both were at the University of Maryland. Inspired by the sophisticated songwriting and dynamic live performances of bands such as The Killers and Muse, the duo aspired to create “the sound of rock ’n’ roll evolving”—grandiose vocals and crunchy guitars, infused with intricate piano work and hip-hop inspired synthesizers.

Drummer Scott Robinson joined the band after producing their debut EP. Dave “Coop” Cooper soon joined on bass. The band was christened “Hotspur” after the rash and hot-headed Shakespearean villain, namesake to the cult favorite UK football team.

Hotspur truly shines onstage. With the addition of guitar ace Evan Anderson in late-2008, the band has evolved into a five-man barrage of sound. Constant touring, stadium-caliber live performances, and tireless attention paid to their growing legion of fans will all contribute to one day making Hotspur a household name.
