– SHARE ‘I SAW MY TWIN’ SESSION ONLINE
– UK TOUR THIS AUTUMN
– ALBUM ‘PAINTED SHUT’ OUT NOW
Philadelphia’s Hop Along reveal their exclusive Ace Hotel 5 at 5 performance with A.V. Club today ahead of their upcoming UK tour dates this Autumn with UK shows in Glasgow, Leeds, Birmingham & London.
Featuring a spellbinding and strikingly raw version of ‘I Saw My Twin’ from the band’s critically praisedPainted Shut, the video was filmed in Downtown Los Angeles just days before they hit the stage at FYF Fest.
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.
Relesed on May 5th via Saddle Creek, the album saw the band featured as a staple on the mid-year ‘Best of 2015’ lists, including Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, SPIN, NPR, Alternative Press, Stereogum, Paste,and VICE’s Noisey. The record is available at the Saddle Creek Online Store, iTunes, Amazon and independent record stores across the globe.
