An awesome fucking band has joined the ranks at Relapse Records.
Australia’s Hope Drone have inked with the label.
You can hear what they sound like at the end of this post.
If you don’t dig what they’re up to, I sincerely feel sorry for you.
Those ears of yours suck.
After supporting acts like Neurosis, Deafheaven, Caspian and Rosetta in Australia, the band recorded their sophomore record with engineer Christopher Brownbill, who helmed their debut.
The yet-to-be-titled album will see it’s release via Relapse in the spring of 2015.
Guitarist Karl Hartwig commented on the signing and the upcoming material:
“We’re stoked to be welcomed into the Relapse family and have our records released by the label that is responsible for some of our favourite releases. The record was recorded at the soon to be defuct Wavelength Studios with our engineer Christopher Brownbill. We really wanted to push ourselves with this record and spent much longer crafting songs with a greater dynamic and depth to them, both in terms of songwriting and how we approached capturing the songs. We aimed for a more live sounding recording that was still rich in atmosphere and I think we’ve achieved something that is true to both of these elements of the band.”
Now listen to their debut below, and tell me they’re not one of your new favorite bands:
