Glaswegian hardcore quartet False Hopes start 2016 in suitably explosive fashion with their new single (released on January 31st) “Turn to Dust”, and with it are keen to announcing their plans for this year. No album, no EP… just one new single a month for the entirety of 2016, culminating in a compilation of those singles in December 2016.
“Turn to Dust” is the opening salvo from that compilation – a heady minute and a half of frenetic drumming, throaty vocals and furious riffage. Stream it below and if you dig it you can download it for free.
Singer/guitarist Mark Fraser comments on the unorthodox release strategy:
“We spent a good year and a half writing an album, but when it came time to actually record stuff for a release we realised that because we’re a new band, now would be the ideal time to try something different. The industry is changing and everyone is still trying to make sense of the best way to release new music. Albums and EPs only really matter if people know who you are, so why not take a risk and try something new?”
The band will be announcing UK and European dates in due course.
