Hot Water Music Share New Song, "Complicated"

Florida punk veterans in Hot Water Music are gearing up to release their first album in 5 years with Light It Up. Today, Hot Water Music gave us another sample of whats to come with "Complicated". It's beefy, it's raw, it's exactly what I wanted from them, with Chuck Ragan's grizzly vocals and lyrics.

You can listen to "Complicated" here and Brooklyn Vegan

“Complicated” started as a very different musical than it ended up as. It was very slow, brooding, and groove-oriented. While we were working on it in the studio, Chris came up with the guitar lead. On its own, the lead reminded us a bit of Midnight Oil —one of our collective favorite bands— which informed us to pick up the tempo and change the song up to what it is now."

Pre-orders for Light It Up can be found at, and will release on September 15th.
