Lit entered the studio this week to begin work on the follow up to their platinum major label debut, “A Place in the Sun”. Producer Don Gilmore will be sharing production duties with the group once again.
According to a press release from the Orange County hard alt-rockers they plan to spend just six weeks recording and producing the as yet untitled new album and are shooting for a late summer release on their RCA Records vanity imprint “Dirty Martini” Records.
The Dirty Martini label was originally launched in 1999 by the group with the re-release of their debut album “Tripping the Light Fantastic”. Now Lit plans to utilize the label once again with distribution being handled by RCA/BMG Worldwide. Their first signing to the new label was fellow Orange County rockers, Handsom Devil. Lit vocalist Jeremy Popoff co-produced their debut album with Ed Stasium (Ramones, Smithereens, Reverend Horton Heat). The first single from the Handsome Devil CD, “Makin’ Money” will be released in early July 10 and the full-length album is expected to hit stores on August 21th.
A new Lit home video, "Stuck In The Middle of Everywhere”, is also coming in August from Dirty Martini. According to the press release, the home video will feature, “never-before-seen live clips, backstage shots, and historical footage from the band's archives. In addition, the video will include brand new videos for their songs ‘Four’ and ‘The Best Is Yet To Come Undone.’”
