Hit the Lights have issued a statement about The Dangerous Summer dropping off the upcoming tour. This goes into a little more detail than what Nick originally posted.
Message from the BandWe just got word that the Dangerous Summer will be dropping off our tour due to "reasons beyond their control". Apparently there was an inner band dispute in Chicago resulting in one of the members of TDS being kicked out of the band (or so we're told). The band went home to regroup and as of last night, had offered to do the tour acoustically.

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 Iím making a statement like this to defend the new HTL record because itís different, right? Not exactly. Through everything this band has been through in the past year and a half of writing new songs, I donít 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 canít wait for a new HTL record because they need more ďgood pop-punkĒ, and honestly, thatís not what this record is. Itís not a ďfeel good pop-punk...
