It’s no secret that all of us at LIKEYOUSAID are major Hot Rod Circuit fans. Frontman Andy Jackson played our official magazine launch party (LIKEYOUSAID Fest!) last May and has since been ironing out HRC’s much anticipated new record from his Alabama home.

Hot Rod Circuit soared in the emo scene in the early to mid-2000s with fan favorites like “Safely” and “The Pharmacist” off Sorry About Tomorrow and “Stateside” off The Underground is a Dying Breed. During the band’s time away, Andy Jackson played in various side projects with members of New Found Glory, Taking Back Sunday, and Northstar.
