Halloween 6 and We’ve Been Buzzfed

So, Halloween is fast approaching and you know what that means – time for our 6th Annual Halloween Show! Halloween is one of our favorite shows of the year to do and our fans (as lazy as they are) seem to enjoy it too!

This year’s show will actually take place on Halloween! October 31st at 7:30 PM at the Crescent Lounge in Astoria, Queens, New York City! The show will also be part of a fundraiser for The Friends of The Steinway Mansion – you can check out their website here.

In other Halloween news, we were featured in a BuzzFeed article about how “Werewolf Bar Mitzvah” is the greatest Halloween song of all time. No, seriously…it really happened. Look here – and go down to the bottom to see our video. While we may disagree with the statement (we have tons of Halloween songs!) we genuinely appreciate the exposure. THESE DUDES are happy!

So – what do you think is the greatest Halloween song of all time? Is it one of ours? Leave a comment and let us know! And we hope to see you at the Halloween show. It will be spooky, scary!

HALO – An original song…

It is something that only gamers truly understand. Whatever horrible thing may be happening in real life, escaping into the game for a little while can change your frame of mind and leave you feeling relaxed…

And with that, we give you HALO, our original song dedicated to gamers…

What do you think?

Big News!

Today, One Hot Second is pleased to bring you this press release:

NEW YORK, April 1st, 2013 – Comedy and parody acoustic rock trio, One Hot Second, has signed a deal to produce three separate music releases. The band, currently Number 4 on the comedy charts, is looking to make an even bigger splash in the comedy industry by teaming up with legendary parody song artist, Weird Al Yankovic, who will produce the albums.

“These guys have been bugging me on Twitter for a long time,” said Yankovic. “I finally gave in and listened to some of their stuff, and I was really surprised. Most of it didn’t suck!”

While no details have been solidified as to the nature of the releases, those close to the deal speculate that the first release will be One Hot Second Saves the Universe, the highly anticipated follow up to the band’s debut album One Hot Second Eats Your Breakfast! Logically, the band would follow that with another long awaited project, The Premature Immaculation, a collection of their most popular holiday themed songs, which hopefully will be in stores and available for download in time for the various holiday seasons.

Perhaps the biggest news is the collection of cover songs, Full Coverage, which will see the boys from Astoria, Queens teaming up with the musicians who wrote the originals songs. Artists already expressing interest in working with the band include Justin Timberlake, Phillip Glass, Dweezil Zappa (who will fill in for his late father, Frank), Phish, Hall and Oates, and former Smiths guitarist, Johnny Marr. When reached for comment, Marr stated, “When I hear these guys play Smiths songs, it sounds exactly like how I want to hear a Smiths song – without Morrissey!”

The normally reclusive band was hard to reach, as they are preparing for an upcoming show, but when news of the deal finally got through, front man C-Fate had this to say, “We were as surprised as anyone! Someone actually wants to pay us to do this stuff. For us, it was never about the money. But money is nice. We have some extensive bar tabs we need to settle!”
