“Putting the swagger back into UK rock n’ roll, The Hot One Two are an act you need to be checking out” ( BBC Introducing ).

Hailing from Cambridge, England, The Hot One Two are a hard-hitting five-piece bringing the fire back to rock and roll. Founded in 2017 by bassist Nick Blackburn, lead guitarist Nick Manners, and drummer Joe Chivers, the band blends the swagger of 80s rock legends with the punch of modern metal, creating a sound that's both familiar and electrifying. The addition of charismatic frontman Simon West and veteran guitarist Kev Baker in 2018 sent The Hot One Two into overdrive. 

In 2022, they signed with TowerRok Band Management, propelling them to bigger stages and captivating audiences with their infectious energy and tight musicianship. Their captivating live shows have further cemented their reputation as a must-see act.

Following the successful release of 2 extended play records (Come Whatever May & Unrestrained) the band's momentum culminated in the release of their debut album, "Superbia," in November 2023. This critically acclaimed record, a concept album exploring the seven deadly sins and featuring Planet Rock's track of the week 'The Fray', showcased the bands songwriting prowess and solidified their position as a force to be reckoned with in the rock world.

"The Hot One Two’s debut album is a powerhouse of rock music that demands your attention and leaves you yearning for more. With a magnetic combination of raw talent and infectious energy, this band is ready to make its mark in the rock music landscape". (Jace Media)



The Hot One Two have no plans of slowing down. Catch them live as they continue to dominate stages across the UK with upcoming festival appearances at Firestorm, Stonedead, Hard Rock Hell and Maid of Stone (amongst many others), and their Autumn/Winter '24 UK tour celebrating their debut album Superbia. Stay locked in for live dates and electrifying releases because this charismatic Cambridge outfit is poised for greatness!
