Hopewell have been rocking eardrums for the better part of a decade with their fuzz-pop sound, so it’s a bit odd that they’re just deciding to release their first live album now.
Luckily for us, the live album , Hopewell Live has been split into two volumes. Volume I features the band as they are today, a gigantic creature with two drummers and multiple instrumentalists. The band used recordings from their three-night Truck Festival America performance from earlier this year.
On the contrary, Volume II set to be released early next year, hearkens back to a youthful Hopewell. It features more of the band’s earlier material and was recorded by the band’s original lineup.
Coincidentally, the band has also announced that they’re going on tour with The Dandy Warhols this fall. You can check them out live here.
