Hop Along‘s Painted Shut made many 2015 best-of lists (see who loved Painted Shut here), and definitely made it into my personal top ten for the year. Now thankfully Saddle Creek is reissuing Hop Along’s 2012 debut full-length album Get Disowned for those of us who missed out on either of it’s previous pressings. This is also Get Disowned’s first ever colored vinyl pressing for those of us addicted to colored wax. With 2,000 pressed there will be plenty to go around, but preordering helps guarantee you’ll get the record about a month before it hits your local record store.
For the upcoming Get Disowned reissue, we asked for your help to choose the vinyl color. The votes are in, and the winner is opaque dark blue!
All pre-orders will receive an instant download of the album!
Get Disowned will be available in stores on March 4, 2016 but we will be shipping pre-orders the first week of February 2016.
The 2012 debut full-length from Philadelphiaâ€™s Hop Along, Get Disowned. Featuring â€śTibetan Pop Stars,â€ť which Mark Hoppus of Blink 182 called â€śthe most painfully beautiful song ever.â€ť
"Their first album, 2012â€™s Get Disowned, is a messy world where people stomp on old floorboards for percussion and saw violins like they were made of something stronger than wood. Everything is governed by Quinlan, who sings in the wild voice of someone casting out demons (or having the demon cast out of them). Its second song, "Tibetan Pop Stars", should be etched in titanium and shot into outer space for safekeeping.â€ť - Pitchfork
â€śHop Alongâ€™s first full-band full-length, Get Disowned was punkâ€™s best kept secret. Critically overlooked but totally devastating, full of epic, unpredictably unfolding guitar songs with massive, quotable lyrics that wring you out emotionally and inspire the kind of furtive, conspiratorial devotion punks live for.â€ť - Impose
"nearly perfect... The album is notable for its folk-gone-indie-punk approach, coupled with massive choruses and Quinlan's personal, soul-crushing lyricismâ€ť - AV Club
"one of the most devastatingly honest records Iâ€™ve heard in years." â€“ Stereogum
