Hundredth Signs To Hopeless Records

In one of the most unexpected stories of the week, Hopeless Records has signed South Carolina hardcore band Hundredth. The label will be reissuing all of the band’s previous work, including their recent Revolt and Resist EPs, 2011′s Let Go, and for the first time on vinyl, 2010′s When Will We Surrender. The band will be releasing a new album through the label in 2015.

While Hopeless has dabbled into this brand of hardcore before by signing Cruel Hand earlier this year, this news comes as a surprise to fans of the band and label. I always …

Trophy Eyes Stream “White Curtains”

Australian pop-punk/melodic hardcore wunderkinds Trophy Eyes have unveiled yet another track from their upcoming Hopeless Records debut full-length, Mend, Move On.

The track “White Curtains” is an absolute banger that packs a rather weighty emotional punch over its 3:03 running time as the band’s unique brand of pop-punk infused melodic-hardcore provides the perfect backdrop for vocalist John Floreani‘s desperate delivery as he recounts a deeply personal manner with unashamed honesty. The result is a track that has you feeling every syllable of his impassioned refrains as he screams “Torn between, being a child my whole life, or the man …

Watch The Video for “Howl” And Fall In Love With Have Mercy All Over Again

Have Mercy are gearing up to release their Hopeless Records debut, and early this morning a new album cut titled “Howl” found its way online. Even better – the song was released alongside its official video.

I don’t know about you, but when I think about Have Mercy my mind immediately goes to the moody and emotional “Let’s Talk About Your Hair.” Their latest, “Howl,” maintains the strong lyricism of that track and pairs it with a driving rock sound that is far more upbeat than fans may be expecting. There are some who have compared the group’s writing style …

Every track released so far has been the perfect combination of in-your-face punk and infectious pop sensibilities, and “Stubborn” is no different. It’s energetic, …

UTG INTERVIEW: New Found Glory @ Riot Fest Chicago 2014

Rock bottom.

That’s the best way to describe where New Found Glory sat in their career earlier this year. Accusations surrounding the abrupt departure of a former member whirled around the band — causing chaos like nothing any artist wants to see in a tenured career. It would have been so easy for our favorite pop-punk forefathers to call it quits, to run into the shadows and hide. To fade away and fall off the face of the Earth.

But what would that prove? For a band that built a career on music that captures the essence of never giving …
