Hop Along Announces Spring Headline West Coast Tour
Hop Along have announced plans for a headline US tour, which will bring their dynamic, powerhouse live show to stages across the West Coast. The dates begin April 2nd in Denver, including stops at Coachella, two nights at The Independent in San Francisco, along with many others. Tickets go on sale this Friday, January 25th. The full list of tour dates can be found below and here. The band have also announced international appearances at this summer's Primavera Sound, Best Kept Secret, and Firefly Festival in the US.
Starting off 2019 right, the band's 2018 wrapped triumphantly with appearances on "Year End Best Lists" by Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, NPR, VICE's Noisey, Stereogum, Paste, WXPN. They also continue to garner national attention with an appearance earlier this month on CBS This Morning on Saturday, with the band performing "How Simple," "Somewhere a Judge" and "Prior Things".
Self-produced and recorded at The Headroom in Philadelphia by Hop Along guitarist, Joe Reinhart and Kyle Pulley, Bark Your Head Off, Dog is, without question, Hop Along's most dynamic and textured record yet. Crafted by Frances Quinlan (songwriter, lead vocalist, and rhythm guitarist), Tyler Long (bass), Joe Reinhart (guitar), and Mark Quinlan (drums), the formidable 9-song collection considers what it's like to cast off longheld and misguided perceptions without the assurance of knowing what new ones will replace them. It's release saw a notable debut at #1 on Alternative New Artist Albums, #2 on Top New Artist Albums and breaking into the top 50 of Billboard's Top 200.
Bark Your Head Off, Dog is available at the Saddle Creek Store, iTunes, Amazon and independent record stores everywhere.
