New Hot Water Music EP 'Shake Up The Shadows' Out Now

Today Hot Water Music release their new EP Shake The Shadows on Epitaph. Shake Up The Shadows sees the band – guitarist/vocalists Chuck Ragan and Chris Wollard, bassist Jason Black and drummer George Rebelo – crafting some of the most impassioned music of their career. Recorded at Black Bear Studios in Gainesville, with the band's live sound person Ryan Williams (who also produced their 2017 full-length Light It Up), Shake Up The Shadows is a truly collaborative effort despite the fact that member Ragan is currently based in California where he owns a fly fishing operation. Listen to “Shake Up The Shadows” Now

While Hot Water Music have never been an outwardly political band, lyricallyShake Up The Shadows sees them expanding on the themes of unity and togetherness. Ragan explains, “I think we're living in a really volatile and terrifying time where people are turning a blind eye to the hatred that's happening in this world and thinking of themselves rather than the big picture. I think that sentiment is present in these new songs the way it has always kind of been there in our music.”
