    • Lit - GLASTONBURY, ENGLAND - JUNE 26:  A man holds a lit flare in his mouth as people gather at the stone circle at the Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts site at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 26, 2013 near Glastonbury, England. Gates opened on Wednesday at the Somerset diary farm that will be playing host to one of the largest music festivals in the world and this year features headline acts Artic Monkeys, Mumford and Sons and the Rolling Stones. Tickets to the event which is now in its 43rd year sold out in minutes and that was before any of the headline acts had been confirmed. The festival, which started in 1970 when several hundred hippies paid 1 GBP to watch Marc Bolan, now attracts more than 175,000 people over five days.

    Lit are set to release their sixth album, The View From the Bottom, on June 19 on Megaforce Records.

    The new album does its due service, at least in part, 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.

    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. The band endured some unthinkable tragedies in the past few years, and they were able to overcome.

    The band headlines, then hits the Summerland tour with Sugar Ray, Everclear, Marcy Playground and Gin Blossoms on June 28.
