National Headlining Tour Continues
“Hop Along know how to make these tiny moments feel huge.”
Rolling Stone, 4-stars
“Hop Along spins anger into indie-rock gold”
PAPER
” …a sound that filtered Quinlan’s storytelling through the rough, emotionally unguarded approach of bands like Rilo Kiley or Bright Eyes—bands who turned diary entries into anthems and vulnerability into a shuddering kind of power.”
Pitchfork
“ …the tones here are bright and pristine—but the subject matter is far from it.”
FADER
“Painted Shut is less a vast departure from what Hop Along have created previously than a confident leap forward, in terms of musicianship, storytelling, and studio mastery.”
Village Voice
Painted Shut is a prickly, unfettered masterpiece.”
Stereogum

Philadelphia’s Hop Along 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. The band is in the midst of a national headlining tour performing to enraptured crowds.

Fans who are unable to make it to a show can experience the band’s hypnotic live show on the WXPN World Cafe session airing nationally on NPR at 5pmET today. Heard on 200 stations nationwide, the WXPN Philadelphia stream can also be heard at 2pm ET, here.  Ahead of the full session being available, watch NPR World Café video of “Waitress” in-studio performance video below.

 

Painted Shut is available at the Saddle Creek Online Store, iTunes, Amazon and independent record stores everywhere. Captivating stories of desperation and weary awakening and fuzzed out grunge guitar riffs are playfully stitched together by charismatic frontwoman Frances Quinlan. Recorded and mixed by John Agnello (Kurt Vile, Dinosaur Jr, Sonic Youth) in Philadelphia and Brooklyn, Frances is joined by Mark Quinlan (drums), Tyler Long (bass) and Joe Reinhart (guitar) on Painted Shut. Revered for their electrifying live show, be sure to catch them in a city near you!
