Hot Rod Circuit

"Hot Rod Circuit" is a rock band from New Haven, Connecticut established in 1999.

The band was originally known as ''Antidote'' under which they released the album ''Mr. Glenbowski'', which won with group the award of ''Best Unsigned Band of 1998'' by Musician Magazine. The band subsequently moved to Connecticut and released ''If I Knew Now What I Knew Then'' under their present moniker.

Hot Rod Circuit has toured with The Get Up Kids, Jazz June, Saves the Day, At the Drive-In, and Say Anything. Guitarist Andy Jackson has actually toured as a member of the latter band.

Most recently, the band recorded with A-level producer Tim O'Heir and released the full length album "Reality's Coming Through" on Vagrant Records.

The name 'Hot Rod Circuit' comes from a Mr. Burns quote on the TV show, The Simpsons. "The year is 1965, and you and I are undercover detectives on the hot rod circuit."
