Gainesville, Florida punks Hot Water Music parted ways in 2006, but their breakup was ultimately short-lived. They're about to release Exister, their first album of new material since 2004, on May 15th. "Drag My Body" is the first track from the record, and it finds the quartet returning to their roots in aggressive, emotionally volatile music. "Sooner or later we all inevitably hit a wall, and lose steam and find ourselves in the vortex of self-inflicted torment," says frontman Chuck Ragan. "'Drag My Body' is a simple story of finding oneself at a point of no return, at the end of a rope and teetering on the edge of madness with the realities of failure looming. Just as well realizing the capabilties of pulling oneself up from those obstructions and simply carrying on." The record won't be out for over a month, but you can download the song for free now.
