New Hope Club release debut album ahead of Manchester O2 Ritz gig

Manchester gigs - New Hope Club

New Hope Club have released their self-titled debut album ahead of a UK tour in April which includes a Manchester gig at the O2 Ritz.

The trio (George Smith, Blake Richardson and Reece Bibby) have released the 13-track album via EMI.  New Hope Club includes the previously released singles Love Again, Know Me Too Well and Permission.

Speaking about the album, New Hope Club commented, “For the last 3 and a half years we have been dreaming of releasing an album. From the day we met we have been writing songs together wherever we can, whether that be in a hotel room or on an aeroplane (which is where we wrote Karma). The album is a journey; we have grown up together, fallen in love, fallen out of love and learnt how to deal with being away from home, all at such a young age. All this time we have been dealing with these feelings by sitting down together and putting them down on paper – it is almost like our therapy. The album really portrays our lives thus far in New Hope Club, including songs that got us to where we are today, which is why we saw it fitting to have the album self-titled as New Hope Club.”

After the release of the album New Hope Club will play their biggest headline tour to date with five UK and Ireland dates including Manchester’s O2 Ritz.
