The Hooters on tour with new EP return to news

The Hooters 2010

May 2010
The Hooters start 30th Anniversary Tour and announce new Five by Five EP

The Hooters began their 30th Anniversary Tour with a series of shows in Switzerland and Germany. The tour will continue later this summer with visits to these and other countries.

Guest musician Tommy Williams joined the band for the tour this summer, initially filling in on guitar, mandolin, and backing vocals while Eric was recovering from a broken shoulder that allowed him to sing, play harmonica, recorder, but only a little guitar. After Eric's return to his normal role, Tommy has remained as a valued contributor to the exciting live show.

To celebrate the band's long relationship with their many loyal fans in Germany, they introduced a new song with lyrics orignally written and sung in German — the whimsically profound Pissing In The Rhine. This song is the first track on the new Five by Five EP.

The new EP is now available in our store, and orders can also be placed with the German web site.

In March 2010, the final mixes, mastering and artwork were completed for a rocking new five-song EP entitled Five by Five. The Hooters were joined in the studio by long time friend and veteran producer Nick Jameson.

These new studio recordings capture the natural energy of the band, with three new songs and Hooterized versions of two classics.
