Hot Buttered Rum: New Album Add Matt Butler on Drums

San Francisco's Hot Buttered Rum to Release Limbs Akimbo on September 8
Band Adds Drummer Matt Butler To Lineup

Hot Buttered Rum
After seven years of relentless touring, and two highly acclaimed studio albums, San Francisco's Hot Buttered Rum will release Limbs Akimbo, their third studio album, on September 8.

The new tracks were produced by singer/songwriter Tim Bluhm (Mother Hips, Skinny Singers), at Mission Bells Studios in San Francisco. David Simon Baker (Jack Johnson, ALO) was the engineer on the project.

Limbs Akimbo features the addition of newest member Matt Butler on drums, in addition to Hot Buttered Rum's Bryan Horne on bass, Nat Keefe on guitar, Aaron Redner on fiddle, mandolin and vocals, as well as Erik Yates on banjo, guitar, vocals and woodwinds. Special guests include Jackie Greene on keyboards and Zach Gill on vocals.

Dreamed up during a round of hot buttered rum at a campfire in California's Sierra Nevada mountains, Hot Buttered Rum's original sound focused on acoustic strings and vocals. Now, with the addition of Butler on drums, the band is heading in a new direction, one that takes them closer to fiddle-accented acoustic rock. With the new higher energy sound and the strong, unique songwriting of Keefe, Redner and Yates, this change of pace marks Hot Buttered Rum as a band that appeals to fans of many ages and musical tastes.

Hot Buttered Rum's last release, Live in the Northeast, chronicled their 2006 northeastern American tour. The band continues to tour the country in early support of Limbs Akimbo.
