Hopeless Records Sign Taking Back Sunday, Bayside & Neck Deep

HOPELESS RECORDS have signed Taking Back Sunday, Bayside and Neck Deep to worldwide deals. All three acts will be represented in Australia via UNIFIED, in line with their exclusive representation of Hopeless Records within Australia and New Zealand. They will join a roster that has delivered amazing success in the last 12 months with The Used, All Time Low and Yellowcard, amongst others.

Hopeless will be releasing the next full length album from Taking Back Sunday in early 2014. The band have been working on the album since May with two different producers and have already completed a portion of the record at Rancho Recordo with producer and long-time sound engineer Marc Jacob Hudson (Saves The Day, The Swellers.)  They head to Long Island this month to finish up with Mike Sapone (Brand New, O‘Brother) who also worked with them on the Demos for Tell All Your Friends.

Hopeless have also inked a deal with New York natives Bayside, formed in the winter of 2000 in Queens, NY. Since their inception, they have released five full- length albums and have sold over a quarter of a million records worldwide.

Finally the label is also very excited to welcome Wrexham, UK natives, NECK DEEP to the artist roster! Formed in 2012, the band is quickly becoming one of the UK’s most exciting and fastest rising names with their live shows winning them fans both at home and across the Atlantic. The 5 piece are also looking to release their debut full length album in early 2014.
