Song Premiere: “Pope” By Hot Water Music Side Project UnWed

UnWed, the side project of Hot Water Music bassist Jason Black–which also features former HWM tour manager Neltie Penman on vocals, former Errortype:11/Instruction/Mind Over Matter frontman Arty Shepherd on guitar/vocals, Matt Kane on guitar and Jeff Gensterblum (ex-Small Brown Bike) on drums.–are set to release a new 7-inch/digital single, and you can stream the B-side first over at AltPress.com. Once you fall in love with it, head over to No Idea Records and order the single

Penman describes "Pope," which accompanies "Made Of" on the single, as an homage to an extraordinary friend she lost.

"It's rare you meet someone who is very self-aware, whose passions are fierce and defiant despite a continual barage of shitty hands dealt by life," says vocalist vocalist Neltie Penman. "Here I was, standing over the grave of the 26-year-old man who emanated more compassion, strength, and talent than most of us could achieve in a lifetime–someone I loved like blood, someone who at times I couldn't decide if I wanted to hug or kick in the nuts. With his immense impact on not just me, but the bands, friends, and family that were lucky enough to experience everything he was, it just felt right to write this song about him."

Bassist Jason Black describes the new project as reminiscent of Hum, Deftones and Queens Of The Stone Age. (via)
