Lit announce Spring Loaded tour, release live video for “Yeah Yeah Yeah”
Lit are unveiling details today for their Spring Loaded U.S. tour. Alternative Press is bringing you the first word on the new run.
The band also dropped a new live video for their single “Yeah Yeah Yeah.”
During the tour, Lit will be joined for various dates by Heart Attack Man and Tuk Smith & The Restless Hearts. The band launch their run May 4 in Flint, Michigan and will conclude it June 4 at Mohegan Sun Casino.
Lit’s new live video is a rendition of their single, “Yeah Yeah Yeah,” following an official video released for the song in November 2021. The new visual comes as the band are at work on their seventh full-length, currently slated for a summer release.
As if Lit weren’t busy enough, there are plenty of other things going on in their universe. The band revealed a four-part documentary-style podcast focused on their iconic track “My Own Worst Enemy.” During the episodes, they connect with music industry figures as well as musicians such as Butch Walker, Adrian Young of No Doubt and Noodles from the Offspring. Along the way, they capture the unique story of a song that has become part of rock legend.
Band members Ajay and Jeremy Popoff spoke about the threads that connect the band to their roots even as they continue to make music for a new era.
“The common thread that never changes with Lit is that you can tell the Popoff brothers are in the mix,” Jeremy says. “I’m still playing a Fender Telecaster or a Gibson Les Paul down to my knees, through a Marshall amp with an overdrive stompbox pedal, and Ajay still sounds like Ajay."
Despite the continuities, the brothers also spoke on the ways they have continued to respond to new challenges, including the ways they offer a sense of escape in the COVID-19 era.
“We’ve taken everyone on a hell of a ride,” Ajay says. “Our fans have allowed us to follow whatever path we’ve chosen. Now, we really want them to feel like we delivered on this batch of songs.”
“When you’re listening to Lit, I hope you get to escape from the world for a little bit,” Jeremy adds. “We hope you feel like, ‘Damn. In the middle of the shit storm that was 2020 and 2021, these guys managed to dial it back to a more innocent time.’”
