2016 marked the 20th anniversary of the Squirrel Nut Zippers’ most celebrated and commercially successful album, Hot. Rocketing to commercial success during the Swing Revival of the late 90’s, Hot sold more than 1.3 million copies and featured their most successful single, “Hell.”
“It’s not a reunion, it’s a revival,” band leader Jimbo Mathus said. “The band includes cutting edge talent from New Orleans and the songs have been brought to life in an exciting new way.”
Plans are underway for the band to record a brand new album, which would be their first new studio album in seventeen years.
