MONTREAL band Pottery will perform in Leeds this autumn as part of a tour following the release of single Hot Like Jungle.

The song, from upcoming album Welcome To Bobby’s Motel, is set to be unleashed on June 26 via  Partisan Records.

The band said that Hot Like Jungle was originally written as a love song for Pottery musician Paul Jacobs’s girlfriend.

“He had a job working construction one summer and came up with the lyrics almost as a sort of Springsteen parody, they’re very blue-collar.

“When Austin sings it we always picture him on a mountain shouting off into the distance with a girl out there singing back to him.”

Pottery have previously shared other highlights of Welcome To Bobby’s Motel – Texas Drums Pt I & II and Take Your Time, each providing a window into the band’s psychedelic dreamworld.

The album was produced by Jonathan Schenke (Parquet Courts, Snail Mail) and recorded at Montreal’s Break Glass studio.

The band insists that although he plays a central role within the album’s 11 tracks, it should be noted that Bobby is not technically a real person, and Bobby’s Motel is not a real place.

The band explained: “It’s become the all-encompassing alt-reality that the band built themselves, for everyone else. So, in essence, Bobby is Pottery and his motel is wherever they are.,”

Pottery can be seen at the Brudenell Community Room in Leeds on September 11, after kicking off the tour at Manchester Deaf Institute on September 8.
