Originally released in the summer of1996, Hot was the follow-up to the band's critically acclaimed debut The Inevitable. By this time the group had already established a substantial live following across the country, thanks to early support from NPR, college radio and non-commercial stations. Hot wound up selling over 1.3 million copies.
