Squirrel Nut Zippers
It was about 20 years ago when NPR’s Morning Edition said: “It’s not easy to categorize the music of the Squirrel Nut Zippers, except that it’s hot.”
2016 marked the 20th anniversary of the Squirrel Nut Zippers most celebrated and commercially successful album Hot. Originally released in the summer of 1996, Hot was the follow up to the band’s critically acclaimed debut The Inevitable. By this time the group had already established a substantial live following across the country thanks to early support from NPR, college radio and non-commercial stations. Hot wound up selling over 1.3 million copies.
Last year, the Squirrel Nut Zippers performed their first set of tour dates since 2009 to sold out crowds across the country. As Jimbo Mathus has said since the band’s re-launch, ‘it’s not a reunion, it’s a revival.’ The band are currently in the studio working on a new album which will be their first in seventeen years.
