Hot IQs have announced a new date and a revised bill commemorating the release of its forthcoming Rococo Records 7-inch. The act, which was originally slated to issue its new record on Friday, November 7 at the Bluebird, will now drop the needle on Friday, December 19, with Chain Gang of 1974 and Young Coyotes. The first fifty folks who purchase pre-sale tickets will receive a free copy of the record. The band also plans to premiere its brand new video for "Houndstooth." While we haven't seen the new clip yet, if it's even half as good as the video for "Firecracker" that Vincent Camparetto directed (posted after the jump), it's bound to be pretty rad. -- Dave Herrera
