Hope Is Noise officially gave birth to This Used To Be Laugh - the Cork rockers third studio album - on Friday (March 16th) with legendary Parliament Street bar Fred Zeppelins acting as midwife for one of the best local gigs I have ever attended in Cork in all my twelve years living here.
More on that later though as this first post of the week is to highlight the fact that HIN have also just released a new video for 'Let Sleeping Dogs Lie' which happens to be as dark as it is impressive. Recorded and produced by rising Cork multimedia studio Zombie, the video features ex-Stump vocalist Mick Lynch who excels as a modern day anti-hero.
- This Used To Be Laugh by Hope Is Noise is now available from all good record stores in both vinyl and cd format
- The album will be available to download from bandcamp later this week
- Hope Is Noise play The Pavilion on Thursday, 29th March as part of the Rebels Against The Pipe fundraiser
