Hit the Lights Done Recording

Posted by: Matthew Tsai (08/13/11)
The new Hit the Lights album is done being recorded. Nick Thompson left a lengthy update about the album and the music scene on his blog.
BlogNow why am I bringing this all up? I mean, obviously I’m making a statement like this to defend the new HTL record because it’s different, right? Not exactly. Through everything this band has been through in the past year and a half of writing new songs, I don’t think that this record in any way is NOT an HTL record. It is. But I have noticed that a lot of people make comments on how they can’t wait for a new HTL record because they need more “good pop-punk”, and honestly, that’s not what this record is. It’s not a “feel good pop-punk album”. This album has hills and valleys, no “break-downs” and no ultra fast drums beats. Here it is: It’s a DARK fucking record. We wrote tirelessly, we were exposed to a lot of shitty situations and pulled through knowing that our fans deserved a great HTL record. We’re all growing up as people and as musicians.

Good read and I'm not even an HTL fan.

That said, I'm interested in hearing this record and the fact Sapone worked on it makes me even more intrigued.
