For over a decade, Hopewell has been infusing vintage fuzz pedal jams with space rock and shoegaze roots. The band is set to release their first live album and embark on a North American tour with the Dandy Warhols this year.
The album will take recordings from their three-night engagement at Truck Festival America in May 2010, as well as their 2009 performance at All Tomorrow’s Parties NY. Hopewell Live Volume 1 seeks to capture the band at their present-day state. Volume 2, slated for an early 2011 release, takes a retrospective look back at the journey the band has taken since their early days.
