Hot Water Music Team With Turnstile, Thrice on New ‘Vows’ Songs

To give a taste of their upcoming album, Vows, Hot Water Music have chosen to highlight two collaborations with other punk bands. On “Remnants,” the band teamed with Turnstile frontman Brendan Yates and drummer Daniel Fang, and the musicians recorded “Fences” with Thrice. The album, which also contains collaborations with members of City and Colour, Alexisonfire, the Interrupters, and Farside, among others, will come out on May 10.

“Remnants” begins with a driving, funky, punky riff that allows Hot Water Music frontman Chuck Ragan to sing about supporting a friend through thick and thin. “We will break, we will shine,” he sings in the bridge, “and the remnants will be left behind.” Yates and Fang — whose band Turnstile took their name from a Hot Water Music song — double up the sentiments, with Yates singing backup vocals and Fang providing additional percussion. A music video directed by Jesse Korman shows the band performing the song at a house party, showing the community aspect of the tune.

“‘Remnants’ is a song of friendship and what it means to be a true friend to a person dear to us even through the toughest times of our lives,” Hot Water Music’s members said in a statement. “These values are based on whether or not we choose to be present for one another when all seems to fall apart.”

The second Vows track, “Fences,” features a slower, moodier tempo, and Ragan sings pensive lyrics about snapping out malaise. “Wake up, rise up/Use or lose the senses,” he sings. “Step up, own up to why we build our fences.” Thrice’s Teppei Teranishi plays keys on the song, and all four of Thrice’s members sing “whoooaa” backup vocals, giving the song an emotional depth. “One of the toughest things in life is remembering and recognizing the importance of living in the moment,” the group said. “With so many distractions in our day-to-day lives, it becomes easy to get lost in the noise of this society and lose focus of our true and present purpose.”

The band, which will be embarking on a 30th anniversary tour this spring and summer, teamed with producer Brian McTernan to make Vows. McTernan previously produced the band’s albums A Flight and a Crash (2001), Caution (2002), and Feel the Void (2022). “For some reason — and maybe because this is such a huge milestone — subconsciously, I was thinking, ‘Who knows what is after this?’” Ragan said. “I would love to say we’re going to keep making music for as long as we’re all around, but the truth is we never know when that’s the last session we do, and I feel like I thought of that more than I ever had in the past.”
