Hot Mulligan have announced a new album, Why Would I Watch, due May 12 via Wax Bodega (pre-order). It was produced by longtime collaborator Brett Romnes (of I Am the Avalanche), and the first single is "Shhh! Golf is on," an impassioned, throat-shredding dose of emo/pop punk that serves as a very promising taste of this LP. Singer Tades Sanville says, "'Shhh! Golf is on' is about my mom. I’m asking her to die. Every time I hear about her, she’s a worse person than before." Check it out below.

Hot Mulligan are currently on tour opening for The Wonder Years alongside Carly Cosgrove, and that hits Long Island's Paramount on March 24. They're also going on the Sad Summer Fest tour alongside Taking Back Sunday, Mom Jeans, Sincere Engineer, and more, and that tour hits NJ's PNC Bank Arts Center on July 14 with the reunited Head Automatica also on the bill. Lastly (for now), they play When We Were Young. All dates are listed below.
