blessthefall will release their new album Hollow Bodies on August 20 via Fearless Records.
The album was recorded with producer Joey Sturgis (Emmure, Crown The Empire, Of Mice & Men) and features guest vocals from Jake Luhrs of August Burns Red, Jesse Barnett of Stick To Your Guns, and electro-rock sensation Lights.
Frontman Beau Bokan had the following to say about the new album:
“To say we’re excited about the release of our new record, Hollow Bodies, is an understatement. This is easily our greatest effort thus far. We have some awesome surprises on this record. Can’t wait for everyone to hear it!”
Hopes Die Last have released their first single “Cheaters Must Die” off their newly announced EP, The Wolfpack due out June 25th. This is the band’s first release with long time collaborator and friend Nekso, who was previously featured on the songs “Keep Your Hands Off” and “Here Comes Nero”. This is what the band’s guitarist & producer had to say about the bands next chapter: “This was the 2nd song we wrote after we left Standby. At the time, we were euphoric to be free, but on the flip side our future was unknown. This song explores those feelings. Sometimes you have to do things on your own.”
