Hot Water Music have announced the followup to 2012's Exister, which was their first post-hiatus album and a very fine album at that. The album is called Light It Up and it's due September 15 via Rise Records (pre-order), and the first single is "Never Going Back." It's right up the alley of gravelly, heartland-y punk that HWM do so well, and you can hear it below.

The band also announced a tour, including a West Coast run with Dead to Me and the new Knapsack/Jealous Sound offshoot Racquet Club, and an East Coast run with Strike Anywhere and Big Jesus.

The run with Strike Anywhere and Big Jesus hits Brooklyn on November 18 at Warsaw. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (6/2) at noon.

All dates -- including Riot Fest and The Fest -- are listed below. HWM's Chuck Ragan also has upcoming solo shows, including two NYC shows and an Asbury Park Punk Rock Bowling night show.
