While I’ve had the opportunity to catch Chuck Ragan perform in support of his folksy solo albums, I don’t recall ever seeing him with his band Hot Water Music, though I’ve long been a fan of the Florida-based post-hardcore act. That just might have to change now that the group has announced headlining tour dates in support of their latest release, Exister.

Hot Water Music’s first headlining tour in 8 years kicks off in January and will be swinging by The Echoplex in Los Angeles on February 5th. The band will be joined by La Dispute and The Menzingers for these dates, and presale tickets go on sale tomorrow, October 30th, at 10am local time, with general on-sale for all shows kicking off November 2nd (with the exception of the Washington, DC date on January 22nd, which will go on sale November 1st).

Check out the full list of dates below, and be sure to catch Hot Water Music when they hit a city near you. Or near enough for a road trip anyways (listening to HWM the whole way, of course).
