"The most exciting part about this record for us was self-producing and being in control from start to finish," the band said about Light It Up. "We haven't made a record this way since Fuel For the Hate Game. As frightening as it was to not have the safety net and sounding board of a producer, it was just as liberating to make a record that is 100% Hot Water Music, scars and all." Hot Water Music will also support the album with select tour dates and festival appearances through the fall, including a stop at the can't-miss Riot Fest in Chicago and their hometown The Fest in Gainesville. Dates are below and go on sale at 12pm local time on Friday, June 2. Hot Water Music tour dates: 9/15-9/17 Chicago, IL @ Riot Fest 9/29 San Francisco, CA @ Slim's w/ Dead To Me, Racquet Club 9/30 Los Angeles, CA @ Echoplex w/ Dead To Me, Racquet Club 10/27-10/29 Gainesville, FL @ The Fest 11/17 Boston, MA @ The Sinclair 11/18 Brooklyn, NY @ Warsaw w/ Strike Anywhere, Big Jesus 11/19 Philadelphia, PA @ Union Transfer w/ Strike Anywhere, Big Jesus 12/2 Sao Paulo, Brazil @ Carioca Club Light It Up track listing: 01.

Sounds kind of like a poor-man's version of All. I don't dislike it but it's not as good as the aforementioned band in my opinion.

My cousin (Gainesville native) has been to some of these guys rehearsals. It's so self-conscious, it's crooked and pitted with places. Deliciously shorter, well done guys. Without a fcking jonte it turns out you can do coconut in 2017. Trust me.

Is this a song about running away as a kid or is it a song about getting divorced?
