Lit, ‘Same S—, Different Drink': The Orange County Rockers Return With Huge Hooks (VIDEO PREMIERE)

Good Cop PR

After eight years away from the studio, Orange County, Calif. rockers Lit are set to invade stores again with The View From the Bottom, their fifth studio album. The band first found Platinum-plated success with their 1999 A Place in the Sun album and its triple-shot of radio smashes: “My Own Worst Enemy,” “Miserable” and “Zip-Lock.”

The group followed that with the album Atomic (2001) and Lit (2004), before taking an extended hiatus. Stay tuned to Noisecreep for an interview with the band filling us in on that.

With The View From the Bottom hitting stores on June 19, Lit is back with a new track called “Same Shit, Different Drink,” and as vocalist A. Jay Popoff told Noisecreep a few days ago, the song unapologetically sounds like their classic singles: “We worked with Butch Walker in the past and had a lot of fun together, so we decided to hook up with him again for this new album. One day we headed out to Santa Monica and had lunch with him and we talked about the kind of Lit record we wanted to make since we had been away for a while. Then we said, “Let’s not overthink this and just go in there and write a song today that talks about the things we’re experts in.” So we did.

“We’ve always been a party band that likes to drink, fuck shit up and then repair the damage [laughs]. I think “Same Shit, Different Drink” is sort of like part two of “My Own Worst Enemy.” It’s a drinking song and it’s signature Lit,” says A Jay and Noisecreep can’t argue with the dude. This song rips!
