sanders ep

Acclaimed American rock band Hot Water Music – Chuck Ragan (lead vocals/guitar), Jason Black (bass), Chris Wollard (guitar/vocals), Chris Cresswell (guitar/vocals), George Rebelo (drums) – are excited to announce its signing with Equal Vision Records for its forthcoming full-length album. Set for release in early 2022, the album will be the band’s first offering since 2019’s Shake Up The Shadows EP and will represent a turning-of-the-page for the iconic outfit.

Daniel Sandshaw, General Manager for Equal Vision Records, had the following to share about the signing: "As a lifelong fan of Hot Water Music, I was apprehensive when we started to discuss the idea of working together. We had a lot of philosophical conversations and it became clear that what I wanted to hear as a fan aligned with what the band was aiming to do with the next album. I'm excited and honored to be a part of this next chapter with the guys."

In addition to the signing, Hot Water Music have also announced a number of early 2022 headline tour dates to coincide with the upcoming full-length. With dates confirmed through January, through March of next year, the band will visit major city markets such as Denver, CO, San Francisco, CA Cleveland, OH Boston, MA and more.
