Hot For Crime
Hot For Crime Bio
Hot for Crime plays timeless rock ‘n’ roll music – guitar, bass, and drums – in the classic tradition, equally influenced by the ‘60s and ‘70s greats, all the way up to the modern day, with buzzsaw guitars and melodic choruses. Their debut album meant to be played loud, preferably on your car stereo, with the top down, as you speed along L.A.’s fabled Sunset Strip, where they fit right in.

The album was produced by Drew Fulk, who has more than 10 #1 Billboard Rock tracks on his resume, having worked with Disturbed, A Day to Remember, Ice Nine Kills, Bullet for My Valentine, Illenium, Highly Suspect and Papa Roach, as well as rappers Lil Peep and Lil Wayne.

The band formed in 2022, echoing classic Los Angeles origin stories like The Doors’ Jim Morrison meeting Ray Manzarek, a fellow UCLA film student, on Venice Beach – which is where Mick reconnected with his childhood friend, bassist Paul O’Malley, to launch what would become Hot for Crime. With the addition of rhythm guitarist Chris Purvis, then lead guitarist Miles Buckley and drummer Danny Thompson, who has played with both Scott Weiland and Alan Parsons, the resulting songs’ propulsive choruses’ channel everything from the Stones, AC/DC and Prince to The Clash, Ramones, Sex Pistols, Pretenders, Descendants and Rancid.

Having already performed several well-attended shows at L.A.’s Viper Room, Mick Patterson is looking forward to more Hot for Crime live shows in a city near you.
