Wrap it up there G : Weekly Round Up

For the past few weeks Hope Is Noise and Slow Motion Heroes fans could only hear both band's new records on www.thegmanworld.com. Now finally - over 2,200 listens later - both records are set for official release today - today being Friday, 16th March of course. For those who find themselves in Cork city tonight, I seriously recommend getting your backside down to Fred Zeppelin's for the first night of Hope Is Noise's mini-festival which also doubles up as the quartet's launch date.
