Florida punks Hot Water Music say they are being careful about how many songs from their new album, Exister, make their way into their sets on their current tour. "It always makes the shows a little more fun when people know the songs," says frontman Chuck Ragan. "All we want to play is new songs, but what happens is when you play new songs that you're the most excited about, there's always a lull in the set and the energy drops."
