Hop Along shares new song “Texas Funeral” — listen

on April 14, 2015, 2:10pm

“I just wanted a happy ending,” laments Hop Along frontwoman Frances Quinlan on the band’s new pop punk track “Texas Funeral”. Guitars slice and scissor through verses, while Quinlan leads the way, her voice sounding like it’s on the brink of a full-on screech. Whether or not she’s willing to give in, her reflections on a failed dream are tearing her up from the inside out. Listen in below.


“Texas Funeral” is taken from Hop Along’s new album, Painted Shut, due out on May 5th via Saddle Creek. For more, listen to “Powerful Man”.

After wrapping up a round of dates with The War on Drugs, Hop Along will tour North America in support of the new LP.
