Hot Water Music premiere video for new song “Never Going Back”

 

So I may have squealed a little when I saw this news. Hot Water Music have premiered a video for their newest song “Never Going Back.” The song is off their upcoming album, “Light It Up,” which is due to be released on September 15th via Rise Records.

Do yourself a favor and check out the video below.

Okay, you know how I said before if you watch only one video today, it should be the The Homeless Gospel Choir’s “Normal?” I lied to you. I’m so sorry. You should definitely watch this one too. Can we still be friends?



Hot Water Music will release new album, first in 5 years

About six months ago, we reported on the rumblings of new material from Hot Water Music, and now it looks like it’s official!  Chuck Ragan recently told The Punk Site that the band is officially in the studio, working on new music for a 2017 release.  This will be the band’s first album since Exister came out five years ago.

Ragan had this to say about the new music:  “Energy is high, vibes are good so to say the least, we’re stoked to have this new record underway. We owe everything to our loved ones for standing by us all these years of us continuing this path. Without their support, we would’ve run out of fuel quite some time ago. Our fans have been a constant inspiration as well. A beautiful community of music lovers that share the same vision and ethics that this band was born into and continues to share through songs. Thank you for all the years of support and always going above and beyond the call whenever it came to making it to our shows to sing your hearts out. Our gratitude is much more than what I could ever put into words. We’ll be trucking along in the studio and looking forward to getting everyone some new music soon.”

Needless to say, we’ll keep you posted as more information about the new album comes out.



Hot Water Music begin writing new music

Hot Water Music‘s Chuck Ragan recently posted a picture on Instagram with the caption that he and bandmate Chris Wollard are currently writing new material for what appears to be the band’s next album, which will be their first since 2012’s Exister.

We’ll keep you posted as more details on the new album come to light. Hot Water Music last released the vinyl box set, 20th Anniversary Collection, a year ago.



No Idea Records announce a bunch of new releases (Hot Water Music/Small Brown Bike reissues, new Ship Thieves and more)

Var and the kind folks at No Idea Records spilled the beans on what can only be referred to as a crap ton of new releases for the ’15 today. While there are no firm release dates attached to any of these (stupid resurgence in vinyl popularity), the fact that these all may get released over the course of the next bunch of months is pretty awesome.

Perhaps most noteworthy are a couple of Hot Water Music reissues. The band are obviously celebrating their 20th anniversary, and to mark the occasion, Var reports that No Idea will be “cleaning up, re-mastering, and adding art to many of their records.” First out of the chute will be a remastered version “Finding the Rhythms” on CD and double LP, and featuring artwork that isn’t in the original vinyl packaging. Following that will be a re-mastered version of their 1999 release “Live at the Hardback,” a live recording of what was, at the time, supposed to be their final show. We all know how that turned out.

In related news, No Idea will also be releasing the third studio album from Ship Thieves, whom you probably remember as Chris Wollard & the Ship Thieves. Chris Wollard is still in the band, just not in the name. Should be out late summer, which is rad (because I still listen to “Canyons” on a weekly basis at the very least).

Also coming from No Idea this year: a new album from Billy No Mates (featuring Joey Cape and Sergie Loobkoff!?!), reissues of Small Brown Bike‘s “The River Bed,” and Palatka’s “End Of The Irony,” an I Hate Myself discography triple-album, a new album from Germany’s No Weather Talks, Black Tower‘s “The Secret Fire,” and a couple of splits that include Radon (one with Shallow Cuts, one with Japan’s Worthwhile Way).

There may be some additional goodies along the way. You can read Var’s whole rundown here. Check in down in the comment section with some of your favorite No Idea releases.

Chuck Ragan to score upcoming “The Flame In The Flood” video game (makers of Halo 2 + 3, Guitar Hero and more)

Another “it came from left field” story for your Hump Day late-afternoon: the one-and-only Chuck Ragan is getting into the video game score composing game!

Ragan was approached by video game collective The Molasses Flood (featuring members of the teams responsible for BioShock, Halo 2 and 3, Guitar Hero, Rock Band and more) about coming up with a score for their upcoming game, “The Flame In The Flood.” The crowd-funded game “projects the gamer into a completely unique, procedurally-generated river, through environments inspired by the Everglades, The Mississippi Delta, Louisiana Bayou, and other quintessentially American places as you scrounge for resources, craft tools, remedy afflictions, evade the vicious wildlife, and most importantly, stay ahead of the coming rains.” If ever there was a game that was right up Ragan’s alley, it seems “The Flame In The Flood” is it.

We’ll keep you posted on details as they become available. In the meantime, you can check out more information on the project here, and see where you can catch Ragan on tour in support of his stellar latest full length (and album-of-the-year candidate) Till Midnight (SideOneDummy Records) right here.
