Take Cover
Hot 8 Brass Band

Released: 22 Feb 2019

Label: Tru Thoughts

After much anticipation, Hot 8 Brass Band’s latest offering is “Take Cover”; the release sees the Grammy-nominated group “Take Cover” as they bring their iconic hip hop and brass workings to classic tracks from Joy Division, The Jacksons, George Benson and Michael Jackson. The EP is available digitally, on black vinyl and on limited edition red vinyl and coincides with the band’s European Take Cover 2019 Tour.

Following singles “Love Will Tear Us Apart” and “Give Me The Night”, a festive appearance Live at Maida Vale for Lauren Laverne (BBC 6 Music), a raucous ‘Hot 8 New Year’ offering on Jools Holland’s New Year’s Eve Hootenanny and a Brit Awards performance alongside George Ezra, “Take Cover” has received support from across the BBC, from Rolling Stone, John Kennedy (Radio X), and Tony Minvielle (Jazz FM).
