Enter Hopesfall's "Hall of the Sky"

2020-02-25 by decisions | 35 Comments
Spacey, atmospheric-yet-raw post-hardcore band Hopesfall have released the first single ahead of a new album, entitled "Hall of the Sky":




The song is the longest the band have released, clocking in at nearly 9 minutes. The single was put out by Equal Vision Records, so it can be assumed that the band will be sticking with the label, which they partnered with to release their 2018 comeback album Arbiter, which was the band's first album in 11 years.

Arbiter was amazing so it's going to be interesting to see if they can top that.

If the new album is anything like this it'll be their best since Satellite Years. No joke.

OK so with the "new album" stuff I was referring to this Instragram post https://www.instagram.com/p/ByDoXjCAoZu/

which admittedly does say a "next movement of musical endeavors" and not an album. However I'm pretty sure they mean an album. lol

Song is amazing. First half gives you the post-hardcore, second half gives you the atmosphere.

this is phenomenal. I found it on k-l a while ago and have been jamming it a bunch. this is a perfect exploration of their arbiter sound. I really do hope this is a part of a new album, but I would maybe say an EP at this point

This is great! I didn't know I wanted new Hopesfall until Arbiter, and now this. Makes me excited for where they might be headed next.

Magnetic North was their best. Nothing tops it for me. This is pretty solid, looking forward to more from them just the same.

Satellite Years over everything - but Arbiter and Magnetic North are both completely amazing albums. Arbiter was such a great surprise, I can't wait for the next thing from Hopesfall.

Satellite Years, debut, and Magnetic North for me. Arbiter is their second worst album lmao

I think everything the band ever released was quality. A Types is a great record in hindsight, kind of occupies a unique position considering it's like this accessible, catchy rock album with these random heavy/spacy parts that keep things interesting.

A Types is criminally underrated here. "Champion Beyond Blessing" and "The Ones" are two of my favorite songs from these guys. The singles are awesome as well. I think the drumming is a little bit stale in comparision to the rest of their work but the riffs are there and the songwriting is as good as ever.

Would be more enjoyable if the second half transitioned in to like an actual post-rock segment instead of .. that

Totally agree! Those are probably some of my least favorite songs on A Types haha, but I still enjoy them! My favorites are Owl and Matchmaker's Haven. I just really enjoy that record and wish it had found more of the appeal that the band was looking for. The songs have hooks and depth, I think it was just marketed really poorly.

The end of The Ones is awesome though. Like what the hell is that doing in an alt rock song? It's awesome.

Man, these guys. Can't stop listening. I'm gonna over-do it well before it comes out on any LP.

Jay mentioned on Facebook that the new material is leaning towards a heavier side. Looking forward to it for sure.
