Angry leaking radiator hoses

i just replaced my intake manifold 3 weeks ago. after doing it i noticed a leaky radiator cap a few days later so i replaced it ,now i have the lower hoses leaking at all 3 inlets . i was wondering if i should try re tightening down the intake manifold a bit or just replace the hoes's ?? could air be getting in there causing these symptoms?

Cap probably added more pressure to the system. How old are your hoses? How good are your clamps? Did you properly burp the system?
