Hi everyone

Well its been one hell of a year for THL but all good things must come to

an end. It's about time we bunkered down and fine-tuned some new material.

The last shows were the Adelaide Big Day Out, Wildaloo Festival in Cummins

and the Adelaide Uni Oball. All these festivals were a blast. Thanks to

all who came to check us out and give us some awesome memories.

We have also just signed a new record deal with Liberation Records, a

label which boasts a roster of great bands. Check them out right HERE.

None of the success we have had would have been possible without the

support of Graham and the team from Resist records for releasing the

Streets Become Hallways EP and helping get the band off the ground.

We are now demoing new songs for our first release with Liberation and its

looking like being another 5-song EP. We'll fill you in as things


Until then, take care and keep your eye out for a new-look website!

The Hot Lies


Hey there everyone HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Triple J’s Hottest 100 is just around the corner. Thanks to those folks who have 

already cast votes for The Hot Lies song, Bullets and Blacklines. Those yet to vote

can do so HERE on the internet or you can do it easier by SMS, just send the song title only

'bullets and black lines' to to 191555 and your done!

We has just survived half a national regional tour with 28Days with plenty of dates still to go 

in QLD, SA and VIC. Check the website 'tour' section for all dates, fishing reports and surf updates.

We’re looking forward to seeing those Adelaide folk in a few weeks for the Big Day Out on February the 4th, 

where we get to rock out with a bunch of fellow local acts and mix it with the overseas crew too, will be a fun day!.

In February, we are venturing to one of the most remote parts of SA’s Eyre Peninsula as part of the Wildeloo 

Festival at Cummins on Saturday the 19th, Other bands on the bill include Spiderbait and Killing Heidi and if 

last year’s massive turnout is anything to go by, it should be a good day. More details HERE

Cheers to all who’ve helped make the current tour so fun, and keep those hottest 100 votes coming in!

Take Care and see you at a show..

 Hi everyone, First of all, sorry for the lack of updates but we have been

 flat out for the last 7 weeks on the road!


 It's not going to be quiet in camp THL for too long. We're heading over to

 Lorne and Tasmania for the Falls Festival at the end of December and

 getting back to our favourite East Coast beaches with 28Days in January.


 The last couple of months has been a blur. We had an awesome tour with the

 boys from Dekoma Arms, Behind Crimson Eyes and GrandFatal. It finished in

 Adelaide with our first headline show at home which sold out! Cheers to

 everyone who came out and sang along and thanks to the other bands. Good



 We then spent 4 weeks on the Arrive Alive festivals in Campbelltown,

 Woolongong, Newcastle and Wagga Wagga. We got to rock with bands we don't

 usually play with and met some very interesting people! check out

 www.arrivealive.com.au for some photos.


 Last weekend was some of the best shit yet - the Mayhem '04 tour with

 Alexisonfire, I Killed The Prom Queen, and Mere

 Theory. The three shows, in Adelaide, Melbourne and Sydney, were

 completely off the hook with each venue selling out.


 Well, that's about it for updates. Adelaide people, we'll catch you Sunday, December

 12 at Enigma Bar for the Resist Records show with Parkway Drive, Wendy

 Icon and Stolen Youth. All Ages and doors at 7pm!


 Don't forget you can still request the two tracks Bullets and Blacklines

 and Against the Wall on JJJ HERE

 Take care and we will see you all soon!

 The Hot Lies


Hey There!

Nothing can cure post-tour-depression like another 7 weeks on the road. So

that's exactly what The Hot Lies are doing for the next, well, 7 weeks.

The first tour kicks off this weekend in Melbourne at the Arthouse for two

shows with Parkway Drive and our tour buddies for the next few weeks Grand

Fatal, Dekoma Arms (ex-Josh Wins Again) and Behind Crimson Eyes. This tour

is sponsored by the top blokes at punkhardcore.com.au

Later in October it's on to the Arrive Alive Festivals with Magic Dirt,

Regurgitator, 1200 Techniques, Koolism and many more in Campbelltown, Wollongong, Newcastle

and Wagga Wagga. These massive events are FREE and ALL-AGES so come down

and check it out. In between all this we are also playing an all ages affair in Adelaide with

28 days at Heaven on the 12th of November.


November brings us a mini tour with a massive bill for Alexisonfire from

Canada. Imagine the mayhem of Alexis, I Killed The Prom Queen, The Hot Lies and Mere

Theory squashed into an all-ages Enigma Bar in Adelaide. It's happening

Thursday, November 25th. The tour then hits Melbourne and Sydney in the

following days. There's is such a huge line-up of support bands, some of

the shows need multiple stages.

Finally, we will be barefoot with the hippies and at the Falls Festival this

New Years Eve. This means a show in Marion Bay, Tasmania, on December 30

and then Lorne, Victoria, December 31, so come on down for what is always

one BIG party! See more HERE. There's other rock bands

playing to, and this band promises there will be no chasing of sheep

this year.

For full lineups, dates and venues hit the 'tour dates' section of the website.

The first track off the EP 'Against the Wall' has been playing at Triple J

for the past few weeks, we need your help to keep it in the Net50, so far

it peaked at no.6!

Vote for it HERE

More tour dates leading into the new year will be posted soon so keep

checking the site for updates

Take care and see you somewhere in oz!
