Hop Along

New Video: "Go Away" (Live - Feat. Frances Quinlan) - Weezer

Hop Along's Frances Quinlan had an amazing weekend. She was asked to join Weezer on stage at their sold-out concert this past Saturday at The Troc. They performed the song "Go Away," which can be found on the new Weezer album, Everything Will Be Alright In The End. Check out the footage below! On the record, you'll find that the track features Best Coast's Bethany Cosentino. Hop Along has plans to go into the studio next month to record the follow-up to 2012's Get Disowned.


mewithoutYou Homecoming w/Hop Along at The Troc Oct. 18

Post-hardcore/experimental rock band mewithoutYou is coming back home for the final night of its 10th anniversary tour of Catch For Us The Foxes. The record was released almost exactly 10 years ago to this date by Tooth & Nail Records. The fan-favorite album features the kind of harsh schizophrenic pontifications from lead singer Adam Weiss, inspired largely by religious works as well as his own dark encounters that the band returned to on their latest album, Ten Stories, released in 2012. mewithoutYou suggests getting to The Troc early so you don’t miss out on their “best line-up of openers in ages”: The Appleseed Cast and Hop Along, local pop-punk-ish outfit, who recently opened for Philly favorites Dr. Dog at the Mann Center back in September. The group is led by Frances Quinlans often raspy, breathy vocals that are always both bewitching and alluring. Be there to support mewithoutYou’s homecoming! The Trocadero Theatre, 1003 Arch St., 7 pm, $18, All Ages - Emily DiCicco

Hop Along Opening for Dr. Dog at the Mann Center Sept. 13

Tonight, a pair of hometown favorites is set to hit The Skyline stage at the Mann Center. Bookended by the sibling combination of Frances and Mark Quinlan, Hop Along runs home-hitting, relatable, narrative lyrics, delivered through Frances’ unique breathy vocals and lilt, while reaching back for raw earnest force when its contextually called upon. When those vocals meld with an energy-filled charge of instrumentation, the songs are given a powerful mode of movement. Speaking of movement, Dr. Dog insights just that, layering melodies, harmonious vocals, and the omnipresent infectious groove. When all those elements react together, throwing in chunks dual-lead guitar ferocity and a touch of the psychedelic, the results are an ear-grabbing groove, inducing good times. Mann Center - The Skyline, 5201 Parkside Ave., 6:30pm, $20-$35, All Ages - Michael Colavita 


Hop Along & Glocca Morra Opening for Owls at Union Transfer July 14

Owls return to Philly tonight for a special show at Union Transfer, and they’ll be supported by an assortment of eclectic local bands that are joining them on tour. Ever since releasing their debut full-length Get Disowned, Frances Quinlan and the rest of Hop Along have garnered much well-deserved praise, and have performed with noteworthy bands like Fucked Up, The Sidekicks, and The Thermals. The four-piece will surely be pulling out all the stops for their hometown friends and fans this evening. Glocca Morra is the kind of Philly-inspired DIY band that sends out EPs like Museum Mouth with hand-drawn paper bag art. And with their recent summer hiatus to prep for this tour while working on new material, tonight might be the perfect occasion for a preview of what the guys have instore for their next release.

The Deli Philly’s Year End Poll - Top Performers: Hop Along

Hop Along is the kind of punk outfit that other punk bands might not want to stand too close to. They almost tend to make intensity look a bit too effortless. Their instrumentals are fairly understated, and Frances Quinlan vocal stylings are a bit more Tegan and Sara than your typical punk outfit. Yet they take that fairly toned-down musical style and explore it with an almost incomprehensible fury. Soulful lyrics are shrieked, while mellow harmonies are shredded rather than strummed. Hop Along takes this somber little vehicle, and drives it at Mach speed. But to really get the appeal, you have to see them live. The band put out a damn good album in Get Disowned, but recordings just don’t do the group justice. Hop Along is that perfect juxtaposition of sweet and vicious, somber and energetic that you don’t get to see very often these days.
