MTV PUSH Artist Of The Week: Hot Chelle Rae

This week’s MTV PUSH Artist of the Week is Hot Chelle Rae. We first told you about this Nashville band last year, when it released its incredibly accomplished debut album, Lovesick Electric. Mixing everything from the operatic rock of Queen to the more contemplative moments of Death Cab For Cutie, Hot Chelle Rae is adept at both heart-string-pulling ballads such as “Bleed” and raucous, sweat-drenched rock songs such as “I Like To Dance,” from Lovesick Electric.

Hot Chelle Rae’s shared a bill with everyone from Lil Jon to Boys Like Girls and The Academy Is… and has charmed crowds everywhere from South By Southwest to the Warped Tour. And if the group hasn’t charmed you yet, then they’re about to.

Watch Hot Chelle Rae’s “Bleed” and “I Like To Dance” videos, and check out live performances of “I Like To Dance” and “Nothing Left To Hide.” Plus, watch exclusive interviews with Hot Chelle Rae to see how the group got its name, how the song “Last One Standing” was inspired by “Twilight” and what it was like meeting Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler. Plus, see the band visit the famed Dakota building in New York City and pay homage to the Beatles, and watch Hot Chelle Rae take a trip down under.
