Hope Of The States Reunite For Tour Dates, New Material

Three headline shows have been confirmed...

Hope Of The States have reunited for a series of tour dates.

The band’s excellent debut album ‘The Lost Riots’ earned across-the-board acclaim on its 2004 release, blending post-rock atmospherics with ambitious yet direct songwriting. A stunning live force, 2006 album ‘Left’ continued their story before the band broke up later that year.

Over the weekend the group broke cover with news of a trio of headline shows – and the possibility of new material.

First, those shows. Hope Of The States will play Manchester’s Deaf Institute on December 4th, before hitting Stereo in Glasgow on December 5th.

Finally, Hope Of The States will play the Dome in London on December 6th; tickets for those shows go on general sale from July 10th.

Alongside this, Hope Of The States have been tentatively working on new material. The group have entered the studio with producer Jolyon Thomas, the son of the much-missed Ken Thomas – who obviously oversaw the band’s first two records.

Exciting news – we’re looking forward to seeing how this one turns out.

Catch Hope Of The States at the following shows:

4 Manchester Deaf Institute
5 Glasgow Stereo
6 London The Dome
