The rock band's third studio LP will be the follow-up to 2005's One Way Ticket to Hell... and Back.
The album will contain 11 tracks, including a cover of Radiohead's classic 'Street Spirit (Fade Out)'.
Frontman Justin Hawkins told NME: "Hot Cakes has a nice raw feel to it like the first album had, with occasional luxurious moments akin to the second. We're proud of the songs and we can't wait for people to hear them.
"We've been playing a lot of the material from the album in the live set for some time now. Each time we play a new song it feels like a deep powerful thrust in a frenzied love ritual between us and our fans."

On the Radiohead cover, he added: "We included the Radiohead cover because it has been a live favourite for many moons, and we wanted to release a definitive recording of our interpretation."
Hot Cakes will be released on August 20.
