In 1998, after releasing multiple EPs and three full-length albums, the band briefly disbanded, but soon reformed, announcing their continuation as Hot Water Music at the concert recorded for Live at the Hardback. In late 2005, Hot Water Music stated they were going on a hiatus following Chuck Ragan's departure. On May 13, 2006 however, the hiatus became permanent and Hot Water Music officially disbanded. The three remaining members have started a new project, The Draft, whose first album, In a Million Pieces, was released on September 12, 2006. Chuck Ragan also continues with a more low-key music career, releasing material through No Idea Records and Side One Dummy Records. He is currently signed to the latter. The band members have also participated in many side projects. The four most popular of these are Blacktop Cadence, Cro(w)s, Unitas and Rumbleseat.

A collection of Hot Water Music work on No Idea records has been released, titled Till the Wheels Fall Off . It was released on CD and on LP. According to Jason Black in an interview with Alternative Press, the compilation will feature "a song that hasn't come out anywhere...it was one of two that didn't make it ."

The band's name was taken from the book by Charles Bukowski of the same name.

    A woman is like a teabag—only in hot water do you realize how strong she is.
    Nancy Reagan (b. 1923)

    Oh, you’ll love the sea. There’s something about it. The hot red dawn, the towering sails, the wake on a tropical night. Oh, you’ll love it all. It’s a glorious kind of world. I couldn’t live without it.
    —Charles Larkworthy. Denison Clift. Capt. Benjamin Briggs (Arthur Margetson)

    Because of neglect, Son,
    though well-forged
    in affectionate bonds,
    Love in time
    will trickle away
    like water through cupped hands.
    Hla Stavhana (c. 50 A.D.)

    As I define it, rock & roll is dead. The attitude isn’t dead, but the music is no longer vital. It doesn’t have the same meaning. The attitude, though, is still very much alive—and it still informs other kinds of music.
    David Byrne (b. 1952)
