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...

From FacebookHey everyone, unfortunately we need to pull out of our show with the Maine tonight in Pensacola, FL due to our van alternator being an A Hole. We promise to make it up to all of you Pensacolans in the very near future.

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.

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.

We were stoked that TDS were going to find a way to do the tour, and we offered various ways to help them continue the tour (AJ playing acoustic ...

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...
