Lit is set to release their sixth album, The View From The Bottom, on June 18th on Megaforce Records. The new album does its due service in chronicling the events of their past eight years, still together, but dealing with situations for which the word heavy would be a glaring understatement. Lit s release and subsequent meteoric light display of a career spring boarded from the fruits of their second LP, A Place In Sun, sporting 3 uber hit singles: Miserable, which went to #3 on the Modern Rock Tracks, and whose video featured the flaxen voluptitude of Pamela Anderson; Zip-Lock, and My Own Worst Enemy (which held the number one position on the Billboard Hot Modern Rock Tracks chart for three months, and received a Billboard Music Award for the biggest modern rock song of 1999). The song has actually enjoyed 650,000 downloads to date, which is no small feat considering that it was released before the advent of that technology. The View From The Bottom, the band s sixth album, mixed by Joe Zook (Modest Mouse, Katy Perry, Mika, One Republic) tangibly tells the story of Lit s in-between days with tracks like, The Broken and most poignantly, Here s To Us. But the new record is not without its lighter, big rock moments- the absolutely monolithic kick-starter, C mon and the equally tremendous You Tonight, co-written by Marti Frederiksen whose collabs include Aerosmith, Ozzy Osbourne and Mick Jagger, among others, not to mention the glam stomper, Same Shit, Different Drink, (co-written with Walker). The View From The Bottom is the unmistakable sound of a great rock band getting on with it, and doing so with reverence for those they ve lost, a healthy modicum of danger, and not to mention, a sense of fun.
