Sometimes you see an email come in from an unknown band and just sort of automatically assume its going to be something you’re not going to be interested in. Ignoring any knee jerk reactions, however, you dutifully click the link, insert your headphones, and give the band their fair chance at being heard. And then something unexpected happens. You LOVE what you hear! That’s exactly what happened when Czech melodic hardcore act Hopes sent in their new EP “Wake Up” for coverage consideration. I won’t waste too much time trying to describe their sound. I’ll just say that if you dig melodic hardcore or feel a little adventurous you should absolutely give the EP a listen below. And if you dig it you can download this little gem for free on bandcamp.
