Hop Along’s new album Bark Your Head Off, Dog was released earlier this year via Barely Dressed Records / Remote Control. In the US, it made a notable debut at #1 on Alternative New Artist Albums, #2 on Top New Artist Albums and broke into the top 50 of Billboard’s Top 200.
The band have shared the charming, playful video for album track ‘Somewhere a Judge’, which invites viewers behind the scenes on the road, in the studio and documents the new Hop Alongmural – which has just gone up on the Studebaker building in Philadelphia –done by the artist Noségo. Woven together by Derrick Belcham, the video debuted with an in-depth Rolling Stone feature today.
‘Somewhere a Judge’ video is available to post/share HERE.
Hop Along will wrap up a massive North American headlining tour with a final stop at Pitchfork OctFest in NYC on September 9. They will then bring their dynamic, powerhouse live show to stages across Europe on tour with The Decemberists this November. Full list of tour dates below and here.
Upon album release, Hop Along’s status was reaffirmed with exuberant notices in NPR, Pitchfork, NPR, Esquire, Vulture, VICE’s Noisey, Stereogum and more, asserting that the formidable 9-song collection is the band’s strongest and most cohesive album to date.
