    Back in June, we told you about a brand new British supergroup featuring Supergrass’s Gaz Coombes and Danny Goffey and Radiohead producer/Thom Yorke’s favorite Nigel Godrich. They called themselves The Hot Rats and were working on a full-length consisting entirely of covers.

    We can now tell you that come January 19th, you’ll be able to hear said full-length consisting entirely of covers when it is released in the U.S. via Fat Possum. No official tracklist quite yet, but the self-titled affair will feature 12 classics spanning 40 years of rock, punk and even hip hop. The Kinks, Velvet Underground and Pink Floyd to the Sex Pistols, Beastie Boys are all said to have received the “Hot Rats treatment.”

    What’s more, Hot Rats will celebrate the release by hitting the states in January for what is currently a four-date coastal swing. Tickets for the dates will go on sale beginning Friday, October 2nd via
