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 Back in Stock!
Hands Like Houses Anon. The fourth full length album from Australian melodic-rockers Hands Like Houses.

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
