Hit The Lights begin recording new album

Ohio’s Hit The Lights are currently recording a new album.  Here’s a portion of what they had to say,

“I can tell you that we’ve written more songs for this record than we ever thought possible. Most of those songs you thankfully will NEVER hear. I’m sure we’ll release a couple from time to time, but the songs that will be on this new record are songs that could never be on “Stick Up” or “Skip School”. We’ve grown up on the road, gotten older and have changed. I think the same can be said for our fans. The songs that have come out of this experience are far deeper and more meaningful to me than any of our previous material. It’s going to be a big, dark, beautiful record and the people we have behind us I have no doubt will help us deliver. We’ll keep all of you updated on what we’re doing with videos, maybe some clips of songs, either way; just know it’s happening and we can’t thank you enough for being so patient and constantly asking us “WHERE THE FUCK IS NEW MUSIC?!”. It just means you’re still paying attention and that means everything. Alright; LEZ DO THIS

Hit The Lights vocalist Nick gives update on the band, new album, and new label

It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything from the boys at Hit The Lights, aside from the news that they would be featured on the Punk Goes Classic Rock compliation. Vocalist Nick gave fans an update today on his blog in which he talks about why they’ve been MIA. According to the blog post, the band has found a new label and have begun writing material for the new record.

If you’re a fan of HTL, you might find this encouraging:

I will have you know that this has already been the most prepared for a record we’ve ever been and we haven’t even gotten started.

But you might find this a little discouraging:

This new record is going to mean the future of HTL.  We’ve heard from all sides of the spectrum.  From: we shouldn’t change, to:  we should go back to our “old” sound and: that we need to do something completely different.  I think it’s right on all counts.  In these past months we’ve explored more of the skip school style, more of the stick-up style and have been pushing ourselves into territories we haven’t been before.  Why am I writing this?  Because I’m rarely serious but I think that this is something serious that should be brought up and discussed with the fans.  This record will be different from the others, and it needs to be.

But you’ll agree that this is good:

We need a record that can be loved by our fans and pull in new fans as well.  This record needs to push us harder as a band and it needs to MEAN something.
