PropertyOfZack recently spoke with Chuck Ragan of Hot Water Music and he revealed that the band will be taking some time off after its winter tour.
From The InterviewProbably quite a bit of time off in 2013. We may do some stuff here and there if it comes up. I’m completely overloaded already in my own direction. Everybody has got stuff going on all over the place. But who knows? The best part about the band, nowadays to me, is that we just do stuff when it makes sense and have fun doing it. There’s not a whole lot of pressure.

PureVolume has a photo gallery up containing images from this year's Riot Fest in Brooklyn. The gallery contains images of The Bronx, The Menzingers, and more before the tornadoes hit. The rest of Riot Fest was canceled, but that didn't stop The Descendents and Hot Water Music from playing a 'secret' show at Saint Vitus. PV got photos of that event as well.

Staff ReviewsHot Water Music - Exister (Thomas Nassiff)
Thomas Nassiff on 05/31/12 - 10:20 PM
Chuck Ragan from Hot Water Music was recently interviewed about Against Me!'s Laura Jane Grace.
From the InterviewIn all seriousness, I felt really honored to be a part of a community that was so open-minded supporting people doing things out of the norm, because when I was a kid, that’s what punk was all about. It was a mind-set, about you being exactly who you wanted to be, no matter what your school or your parents or the church said.

Although they weren't noted in the chart we posted earlier, SoundScan is reporting in its official counts that Hot Water Music sold just over 10,000 copies in first-week sales of Exister, their first record in eight years - good for an opening at the No. 33 position on the charts. Congratulations to the band and to Rise Records.
