Today is the day. A red letter day. A red hot letter day. It is the day that Melbourne rockers, The Casanovas, release their new single ‘Red Hot’ and announce their forthcoming album ‘Reptilian Overlord’ – out August 28.
Last year, with a set of great new material, the re-tooled Casanovas hit the studio with iconic Oz rock producer Mark Opitz (AC/DC, The Angels, Cold Chisel, The Divinyls) to record a new album. The Casanovas provided the first taste from the upcoming album late last year when they released their first new music in over four years with popular single ‘Hollywood Riot’.
This new single ‘Red Hot’ proves to live up to its name, with James “The Hound Dog” Young, owner of the iconic Cherry Bar in the boys’ hometown calling ‘Red Hot’ “another scorcher”. “It’s like they’ve captured all my favourite rock acts – Cheap Trick, Stones, Kiss, ZZ Top & AC/DC, and crammed them all into their own jar of Vegemite” he proclaims.
The Casanovas will launch the single this Saturday Night at 8PM (AEST), with a live-streamed performance from Melbourne venue Musicland. Details here.
