You might have forgotten about them. But they haven’t forgotten you.
Brothers Jeremy and A. Jay Popoff of the once chart-topping outfit Lit (remember “My Own Worst Enemy”? Sure you do!) have returned from the wilderness with a new album. Produced by studio vet Matt Wallace, the record will reportedly be released later this year.
But the band isn’t keeping their comeback under code-of-music-biz-silence wraps.
Lit has just launched a new website, where — first of all — they’re offering a free download of a 2011 rerecording of their 2000 nugget “Miserable.” They’re also offering a cool sneak peek at the upcoming effort via “You Tonight,” a demo/video they’ve posted of one of its tracks. It’s still in rough, unmastered form, but the brothers don’t care — they want to get news of their return out there as fast as digitally possible.
Coupled with their part ownership in a Fullerton eatery called The Slidebar Rock ’N’ Roll Kitchen, it looks like it will be a year to remember for the Popoffs.
