The music of Dot Hacker is architectural, built on a foundation of bold, manipulated tones and supported by lush eclectic textures and angular rhythm. The band’s enigmatic sound comes from the collaboration of friends and founding members, Josh Klinghoffer, Clint Walsh, Eric Gardner and Jonathan Hischke.
Before forming Dot Hacker in 2008, the four were already established musicians, recording and touring with an impressive list of respected artists including: Beck, Gnarls Barkley, PJ Harvey, Charlotte Gainsbourg, The Butthole Surfers and Broken Bells amongst many others. Klinghoffer, the band's lead vocalist, also currently plays guitar in the Red Hot Chili Peppers. The band plans to announce more shows in 2012 to support the release of their debut album.
To show their live set up, Dot Hacker share a video of their single "Order / Disorder" performed live at The Troubadour.
Dot Hacker announced their first full-length album, Inhibition to come out on May 1st 2012 and will be available through all major digital outlets, and in stores on CD and vinyl. An exclusive run of 200 copies of limited edition Black, Blue, and White Swirl color vinyl is available for pre-order on the ORG Music site HERE.
