15 MAY 2023 - THE HOOTERS' NEW ALBUM, "ROCKING AND SWING" is released!!!
Our brand-new album, ROCKING AND SWING, is finally here (in streaming, CD and VINYL formats) - a new collection that revisits the high-energy ska style and sound that brought the band to the forefront of the Philly music scene in their first years! In addition to the new single "Why Won't You Call Me Back", the album features several tracks that combine elements of 4-track demo tapes from the early '80's with newly written and recorded lyrics and instrumental parts - a true marriage of old AND new. There are also some classic Hooters tunes (revisited and re-cast in a fresh new way), a Hooterized cover of The Rolling Stones' classic deep cut "Connection", and a live recording of the band's signature ska cover, the Skatalites' "Man In The Street" (featuring, as does most of the album, the "Men In The Street" horn section)!
