Hot Water Music have never had a hit single or seen their faces plastered all over MTV, but over the years
the act have done something far more impressive: They’ve achieved a lasting relevance that most of the
aforementioned acts could only dream of. Since forming in the early nineties in Gainesville, Florida, Hot
Water Music have released seven full-length albums, countless singles and toured with everyone from
Flogging Molly to Coheed And Cambria along the way—but all of those stats are overshadowed by the fact
that for nearly two decades this four-piece have stayed true to their roots, themselves and their music in the
face of countless fads and generational shifts.
Hot Water Music was born in 1993 and since then the four-piece have never looked back. By combining
elements of punk rock, and post-hardcore, with rock and roll, the band pioneered a unique blend of music
that has set them apart as innovators of a movement that has inspired bands like Rise Against, The Gaslight
Anthem, and Against Me!.
Ironically, Hot Water Music seem bigger these days then ever before. They’ve been able to keep all of their
old fans, as well as establish a whole new generation of fans, whose enthusiasm for the band is just as strong,
if not stronger. With high expectations set by critics and fans alike, Hot Water Music headed into the studio
with Bill Stevenson (Rise Against, The Descendants, Nofx) to craft their highly anticipated new album
“Exister”, Which will be in stores May 15th 2012. The band will be on tour all year to support the release, as
well as headlining major festivals all over the world. The people spoke and demanded a new Hot Water
Music album, and with these 13 tracks, the band responded with their best body of work to date, cementing
them as the legacy punk band with the most heart and longevity.
