Hopeless Records is one of my favorite independent labels in today’s music scene. The moniker alone screams gut-wrenching emo, and some of my favorite bands are on their roster, including Taking Back Sunday, The Used, The Wonder Years, and Bayside. Hopeless has also launched the careers of several pop-rock heavyweights, such as Yellowcard and Amber Pacific, and the indie label just announced the newest addition to their family, Trophy Eyes.
The Australian band blends pop punk and hardcore in a high-energy mix perfect for the Hopeless label. In a statement, vocalist John Floreani said, “We are excited to announce our signing with Hopeless Records, the production of our album in progress with the label, and the re-release of our EP Everything Goes Away. We’re honored to work with them and along side some of the world’s best bands and some of our biggest influences growing up.”
Trophy Eyes are currently in the studio recording their debut full length, which will be released in the fall of this year. I’m betting the album will be followed by a tour here in the States now that these Aussies are repped by an American label, so keep your eyes peeled for upcoming tour dates. Get ready for those crowd sing-alongs by streaming the group’s EP today on Hopeless Records’ Youtube page!
