US punk rock legends Hot Water Music are back to show the new kids on the block how it’s really done.
After a five-year break the band are heading to these shores to play just four gigs, including Leeds.
Famous for their mix of raw aggression and hook-laden choruses, the Florida band were formed in the mid 1990s and by 2001 had aligned with Epitaph in time to drop the highly lauded A Flight And A Crash and its follow up, the much revered Caution.
Now the four piece are set to return after the success of a number of side-projects, most notably Chuck Ragan’s solo work.
Ragan’s two albums have seen his stock rise and play a major part in the Revival Tour in the US and the folk-punk movement in the UK, where he has most recently been on the road with Frank Turner.
Hot Water Music’s only northern gig is at Leeds Irish Centre on June 22.
