After releasing their critically acclaimed album ‘Painted Shut’ earlier this year via Saddle Creek,Philadelphia’s Hop Along announce news of a European tour this autumn.

The band have been touring extensively across America over the past few months & are set to bring their enigmatic indie pop meets guitar grunge sounds to the UK this November with shows in Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham & London. You can check out one of the singles from the album ‘Powerful Man’below.

Painted Shut is a record of lush compositions, fuzzed-out guitar riffs and captivating vignettes that tell vivid stories of desperation and weary awakening. It pays homage to post-punk luminaries, while simultaneously driving home a sound that is contemporary, emotive and challenging to define.
