Stand Atlantic Skinny Dipping Freshly signed to Hopeless Records, Australia's Stand Atlantic follow on from their 2017 Sidewinder EP with Skinny Dipping. “Skinny dipping can be seen as an innocent thing you do for fun,” explains singer Bonnie Fraser. “But at the same time, you’re naked and vulnerable and exposing yourself to anything in there. There are things in life I sometimes feel are either unimportant or something I shouldn’t be talking about. It can be so isolating to be truly honest, but to have people accept you is so freeing.” Hopeless CD | LP
Hands Like Houses Anon. The fourth full length album from Australian melodic-rockers Hands Like Houses. The band say the songs on -Anon. “capture fatalism and optimism, call-outs and self-reflection, realism and fantasy, politics and personal journey. Each its own anonymous piece to relate to, built around a shared human experience or perspective.” Hopeless / UNFD CD | LP
Bayside Acoustic Volume 2 The second full length acoustic album from the emo-rockers Bayside, their last acoustic album was released twelve years ago back in 2006. “This album is strictly for the fans, more so than any other release or record,” frontman Anthony Raneri shared. “We didn’t want to just play them as they were written on acoustic guitars, we put a lot of time into re-imagining them. We wanted to give new life to some of the songs fans love, including some that have never been played live.” With a spirit of deconstruction and re-imagination, Bayside returns refreshed and reinvigorated with Acoustic Volume 2. A blend of instantly recognizable fan-favorites and deep cuts, Bayside’s latest release throws off convention in search of the distilled melodic essence and emotive power of their catalog. These aren’t “stripped down” versions of Bayside songs so much as they are completely new discoveries, refashioned and broadened by possibility. Hopeless LP
With Confidence Love and Loathing The second full length album from pop-punkers With Confidence. “there’s a looming relationship with loathing, mostly about the concept of self-loathing. That period before getting into a relationship is very introspective, you’re trying to be a better person, but a lot of how that happens is because people are really hard on [themselves]. That ties back to love just as strongly, because in the relationship, you want to keep being better. In every way.” Hopeless CD | LP
WSTR Identity Crisis There's an exclusive Banquet variant. Half black / half teal coloured vinyl, /300.

Speaking about the upcoming album, vocalist Sammy Clifford says, “we’ve added all these different genres into our sound while keeping the WSTRroots. This record is about putting the simple things together well and trying to make them great.” Hopeless CD | LP Exclusive
