It’s been eight years since Florida punk rockers Hot Water Music released any new music, but after a short-lived break-up the group is back delivering the same kind of straight-ahead, driving rock that it was always known for. The title track from the upcoming full-length, Exister, picks up right where the band left off with steady, up-tempo rhythms, high-energy, in-your-face guitars and the dual wails of Chuck Ragan and Chris Wollard. For fans who’ve been missing this group, and have been subsisting on 2008’s compilation of b-sides Till the Wheels Fall Off, this new track is classic Hot Water Music. It’s fast, it’s fun, it’s straight to the point, and it rocks.
Exister drops May 15th on Rise Records.
