Hot Springs were a Canadian psychedelic indie-rock band based in Montreal, Quebec.[1] They were unusual in the Montreal music scene, in that they had an equal fan-base within both the francophone and anglophone communities.

History edit

Formed in the spring of 2004, Hot Springs featured Giselle Webber on vocals and guitar,[2] Rémy Nadeau-Aubin on guitar, Frédéric Sauvé on bass and Anne Gauthier on drums (previously Karine Lauzon).[3]

Hot Springs released their first EP, Rock Partouze in 2005.[4] The band's track "Caco Disco" hit No. 1 on the local college charts, and they received MIMI (Montreal Independent Music Initiative) nominations in both the EP and Rising Star categories, and a number of radio and television spots within the francophone media circuit.

The band's first, and only, full-length album, Volcano was released on September 18, 2007, under Quire Records.

In October, 2008, Hot Springs disbanded when lead singer/songwriter Webber chose not to continue.[5]
