hcrmain1Nashville based band Hot Chelle Rae are getting ready to embark on the ride of their life as they prepare to release their first major label debut album on Jive Records  titled “Lovesick Electric.”

All hailing from musical backgrounds it took some time for the foursome to come together and gel as a band but when they did the goal was to create a sound that was larger than life.  The band (Nash Overstreet on lead guitar/vocals, Ian Keaggy on bass/vocals, and  brothers Ryan Keith Follese on lead vocals/guitar and Jamie Follese on drums) worked with an all star line up of producers including Butch Walker and Eric Valentine who guided them through the process.

The results?  A power pop rock album that offers up the perfect soundtrack to anyone who wants to break up with their long distance lover, dance the night away, then fall in love all over again before the sun comes up.  The songs are a perfect blend of being catchy without jeopardizing their substance and will undoubtedly leave your ears, heart, and dancing shoes longing for another listen.  Solid musicianship throughout for such young guys we predict big things for this band in the future and think they deserve everything they have coming their way.

Guitarist Nash Overstreet took some time out of the bands current promo tour to catch TWRY up on the and and their new album (and you KNOW we had to ask about Mr. Walker…)
