Hotter Than June is a four piece band hailing from Kankakee, Illinois and consist of Josh Humphries, Cam Cororan, Anthony Vieceli and Brandon O’Connor.

The band has recently released their first EP, titled “Leave All the Pretty Things Alone” on Chicago's Delphine Records. The album features the driving anthem, “Go.Fight.Win.” which was also featured on Quickstar Production’s compilation, “Eleventh Hour Confessions: Midwest Edition.” Hotter Than June plans to record their first full-length album over the summer of 2007.
Hotter Than June has played shows throughout Illinois at venues including: The Underground Lounge in Chicago, North Beach Bar in Downers Grove, The Cowboy Monkey and the Canopy Club in Champaign. The group has had a growing fan base at shows and on their popular myspace page and has attracted the attention of fans as far away as Germany, United Kingdom, Bulgaria and Australia.
Hotter Than June was featured, in December of 2006, on the online music news site “The Palestra” as one of the hot shows of the week. They are currently endorsed by Knucklehead Strings and under a development deal with Delphine Records.
