Hot Water Music Super Bowl House Party
If you ask the members of Hot Water Music what it’s like to be back, the musicians will tell you that it doesn’t feel like they’ve gone anywhere. And it’s understandable why: The rock foursome, which formed in 1993 in Gainesville, FL, has been a staple of the music scene for years. The band’s new album, Exister, is their eighth in nearly two decades, yet another addition to an already impressive career.
 
But it’s also understandable why fans see this album as a sudden return: The group, singer/guitarist Chris Wollard, bassist Jason Black, drummer George Rebelo and guitarist/vocalist Chuck Ragan, pressed pause in 2006, electing to pursue individual projects and live their lives for a while. In the long run, that break worked—two years later the four members reconvened to perform live, a few shows evolving into many.
 
The band’s desire to pen a new album to succeed 2004’s The New What Next rose directly from those live shows. “The more shows we did, the more we felt like a band,” Chris says. “And what do bands do? They write songs. So it was only a matter of time before we started talking about it. The more we talked about it the more we got excited about the idea. A lot of the writing was based around what we wanted to play onstage. It was a natural progression from enjoying playing these shows to making another record.”
 
Instead of plunging into writing an album, the four musicians first wrote and recorded a new seven-inch called “The Fire, The Steel, The Tread,” which the band released on its own in August of 2011. Working on the two tracks that appear on that disc opened the floodgates and suddenly the members of Hot Water Music were writing together again, quite prolifically. It was around this time that the band signed with Rise Records, a label Chris says was “an obvious right choice for us.”
 
This meant that a new album was definitely and finally happening, and the musicians, who now live in different parts of the country, wrote whenever they were together during the second half of 2011, testing out new material backstage and during soundchecks at shows. Jason and George spent time in Florida writing with Chris and later flew to California to write with Chuck. These sessions and the passing back and forth of demos was a new method for the band, but it was one that was ultimately to their benefit.
 
“It was a different approach for us,” Jason notes. “But I think it worked out better in the long run. I think everyone got to write more and got more of their own voice. Once we started writing it just started going. And we probably could have kept going and going and going.”

La Dispute
La DisputeLa Dispute is five close friends from the Upper Midwest with a firm passion for the concept of music and art as a medium for making new friends. As a result, La Dispute makes (or strives to make) music that is both artistically, technically, and emotionally engaging in hopes of establishing legitimate connections with any and all interested people, while encouraging dialogue between those people and themselves about things in life that truly matter and that truly last. La Dispute also carries a firm passion for the relevance of a live show, both for the bands involved and for the people in attendance, and will go to the grave believing that the environment created when strangers come together despite their differences to celebrate one important thing is invaluable and should not under any circumstances be taken for granted. Two split 7″ to come in 2010 (with two amazing friends), Europe tour in June (they can’t wait), new full length in the not-too-distant future, touring always come 2011. Come say hello.

The Menzingers
The MenzingersThe Menzingers originally formed after the dissolution of Bob And The Sagets, a band local to the Scranton/Wilkes-Barre area of Pennsylvania. With the addition of Greg Barnett the band recorded a demo/self-released album “A Lesson In The Abuse Of Information Technology” in 2006.

Shortly thereafter they were signed by Go-Kart Records and re-recorded the songs from “A Lesson” and re-released their album with the addition of some new tracks.

At the Fest VII in Gainesville, FL they were approached by Brendan Kelly of The Lawrence Arms and subsequently signed to Red Scare Industries.

They released their Red Scare debut EP “Hold On, Dodge” in 2009. They will be recording in January of 2010 for their sophomore LP “Chamberlain Waits.”

The band currently lives in South Philadelphia, PA.
