Gainesville' Florida's Hot Water Music have announced their new album Light It Up. The 12-track album was self-produced and will be released on September 15 via Rise Records. It follows 2012's Exister, which was the band's Rise debut.

"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."

Light It Up is a prime example of a band remaining vital and increasingly relevant in its near-25-year career.
