Hit The Lights are welcoming back original singer Colin Ross for the band's upcoming December tour with A Loss For Words, With The Punches, and State Champs. Colin and Nick will split up vocal duties based on their work over the band's discography. This is Colin's first tour with the band since 2007. Tour dates along with pre-sale ticket links can be found in the replies.
Quote from NickOur set will still include songs from all of the albums that we've released, but we're stoked that Colin will be out to once again lend his vocal abilities on some oldies but goodies. We know that some people may be upset that we're only doing this only for our December tour, but we had the window...

Hit The Lights has released a statement, which you can read below, regarding their sprinter being broken into in Manchester earlier this week. Banquet Records has set up a donation process and the band is offering 15% off in their merch store (code: UKBREAKIN) to try to recoup some of the losses.
From the BandLast night at our show in Manchester at Moho, we had to park our sprinter van in a parking spot about 4 blocks away from the venue.

During the short time span between us back line/sound checking we had a lovely gentlemen bust out the front window of the van so he could swipe an i-phone, an i-pad charger an i-pod and a macbook among other personals/clothing that were included in...

You can check out our interview with Hit The Lights here.

From The Interview
Well, our first goal as a band was to actually make a record, we had a really hard just getting to that point. We were on Universal Republic, and they kept pushing our album back, and it was really thing to be able to get into the studio. When we signed to Razor & Tie and they let us go in, just trying to agree what songs we wanted on the album and what album we wanted to make. Being able to make this album was pretty cool, and we hoped that people just like it and like the change in sound.
