Dot Hacker

An experimental Los Angeles-based rock foursome on a captivating musical journey
With all the beauty in the world at our vile little fingertips, I can't help where the gavel slams.
lyrics from Sermon Of Sorts

Dot Hacker is a Los Angeles-based band featuring musicians Josh Klinghoffer, Clint Walsh, Eric Gardner, and Jonathan Hischke. Formed out of conversations between Clint and Josh whilst on tour with Gnarls Barkley in 2006, the pair each introduced one another to Eric and Jonathan.

Before long, a band was formed, a record was made, and friendships were born. In 2009, amongst other tours and projects, Josh joined the Red Hot Chili Peppers and began work that would make releasing and promoting their debut album, Inhibition, difficult at that time.

Though all members are constantly working on different things, sometimes together, sometimes apart, Dot Hacker has found a way to exist. Together they have as many different influences as the number of musicians they've worked with. Their 2012 debut album, Inhibition, was called “one of the year’s best debuts and a rewarding trip” (ARTISTdirect).

In April of 2014, the band released a vinyl 7” exclusively for Record Store Day 2014, as preview of their two part sophomore effort, How's Your Process?. The first part, How’s Your Process? (Work), was released in July 2014 to critical acclaim. Dot Hacker continues their captivating musical journey with the follow up release, How's Your Process? (Play), in October.
