HOP ALONG @ THE ECHO

Hop Along

Weezer-esque, slacker-rock merged with Seattle-grunge, Hop Along unique sound echoes thorns on a rose bush; beauty surrounded by sharp thorns.  With their melodic melodies accompanied by the scattered and tortured vocals of Frances Quinlan, Hop Along performed a sold out show at The Echo on Saturday.

Earlier this month, the Philadelphia foursome released their sophomore full-length album Painted Shut on Saddle Creek to critical acclaim! With accolades ranging from Pitchfork & SPIN to NPR & Urban Outfitters, the album debuted at #7 on Alternative New Artist Albums and #10 on Top New Artist Albums Chart. Described as grounded and less merciful than their debut album Get Disowned, Painted Shut tells the story of many struggling adults (and children) in a severe landscape.  


Painted Shut is available at the Saddle Creek Online Store, iTunes, Amazon and independent record stores everywhere.
