It’s not taken Fort Hope long to make their own mark as one of the most promising young bands in the country. Their stunning debut album Courage reached number 6 in the official UK rock chart, and the top 100 overall albums upon release via LAB Records in May 2014.

A live powerhouse, in a little over a year as a band, they’ve already supported the likes of Jimmy Eat World, Mallory Knox, Frank Iero, Andrew McMahon (Something Corporate, Jacks Mannequin), We Are The In Crowd, Never Shout Never, The Maine and We Are The Ocean on full UK tours.

Their new self-titled EP is released on 8 February 2015 and the band embarks on their first headline tour to support it – through their current run with Mallory Knox and ex-My Chemical Romance stalwart Frank Iero, the band have debuted new songs ‘Plans,’ ‘Sick’ and ‘Tears.’
