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
The Wonder Years Sister Cities There's an exclusive colourway only available from us on light-blue coloured vinyl, /500. The hugely anticipated sixth full length album from a band that haves a lot of Banquet love, The Wonder Years presents Sister Cities. They've completely pushed their sound into an expansive, dark and emotive punk / rock style with Dan Campbell's detailed and emotive lyrics. They're following on from their acoustic EP which saw a slower side to the band and now they've came back swinging. After doing their last three albums with famed pop punk producer Steve Evetts, they recorded this one with Joe Chiccarelli (Manchester Orchestra, The Shins) and Carlos de la Garza (Jimmy Eat World, Paramore, Tegan and Sara, M83). It's their most expansive work yet. Hopeless CD | LP Exclusive
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
Trophy Eyes The American Dream Banquet exclusive colourway is on 'half red / half yellow' coloured vinyl, /300. The third full length album from Trophy Eyes, merging anthemic pop-punk qualities with some heavy, modern alt-rock. The American Dream is about restoring quietness after upheaval and unrest. Despite living in an age of hellfire, Trophy Eyes still have a positive outlook on the future. Their new album will feature a sense of renewal while giving fans optimism. Additionally, The American Dream is an intrinsic look on Floreani’s personal growth. “This record is about my life in present time and a reflection on who I was and how I got here,” he says. “As much of the other Trophy Eyes works have been about the hate, violence, addiction and heartbreak I fought so desperately to leave behind, this record is about shedding one’s past, transitioning from boy to man, making a home and wanting nothing more in life than to sit and enjoy the silence.” Hopeless CD | LP Exclusive
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
