Little Hurricane Strike ‘Gold’

Little Hurricane

San Diego’s Little Hurricane have just announced the release of their second studio album, Gold Fever. The follow-up to 2011’s Homewrecker is set to drop on March 4. (UPDATE: The release date has been pushed to April 29.)

The release will be an extra special one for the blues-rocking duo, because it’ll be the first record put out on their very own label, Death Valley Records. Gold Fever will have a distribution assist from INgrooves/Fontana.

Little Hurricane claim that the upcoming album will represent the sprit of the band.

Gold Fever was inspired by our time spent traveling and exploring the deserts of Southern California,” they said in a press release. “It was recorded at an old apple packing farm from the 1800s in the gold rush town of Julian, CA.”

The evocative backdrop did present some problems though.

“We survived recording in 100+ degree heat without AC, black widows, scorpions, tarantulas, and true gold country life in the weeks we spent in Julian,” the band said. “As with our first album, we maintained our DIY attitude towards music, writing, recording, and producing ourselves.”

The group also recently released a free covers album for fans, titled Stay Classy (A Collection of Covers). If you’ve ever wanted to hear a dirty blues version of Aerosmith’s “Don’t Wanna Miss a Thing,” get thee to the band’s website to download it.

Little Hurricane will keep busy in the weeks leading up to Gold Fever‘s release by touring with John Butler Trio. The tour will culminate with a show at San Diego’s House of Blues on Feb. 23. The full list of dates can be found below.
