photo by the wonderful guys @ ShotbySodium Hello all!

Just a quick one to say Thank you so much for all making this tour so amazing.

The last two weeks since the release of Sleep Sound have overwhelmed us all and with the first real big stint at touring since i joined the band, i can assure you its been one not to forget.

So….to celebrate, we are playing at the ever fun/mental/carnage that is Cuckoo’s fest at the Adelphi. We are on at around 9pm ;) so come help us see this tour out with a bang!

See you there!

Thank you for an unforgettable tour (well, I’ve only actually seen two of the gigs but I’m sure the rest were just as amazing! :) ) and an absolutely incredible album! Don’t think I’ve ever been this excited by music even when I was a teenager. Thank you all.

[…] hospital residents enjoyed the tunes too. Leeds band Hope & Social finished off a tour with a gig at the Adelphi on Saturday night. Slightly outside Leeds the Saltaire Arts Trail was huge fun for many people (and is still on today […]

I first saw these guys (well some of them anyway) in July 2003 at the Blakey Festival. This was a place I knew pretty well as I used to go to see the fantastic Back Door there in the 70’s – that dates me somewhat. I was encouraged to go by Ben Dennison, a friend of mine. I remember the headline band were Mostly Autumn and there were some other good acts on, but Four Day Hombre stole the show for me. Since then I have listened to them go from strength to strength, musically if not financially, and each album brings something new.
My kids have now got into them so that gives me an excuse to get out to gigs again. Only H&S would take what must have been about a 40 piece choir with them to do a gig at the Brudenell! Excellent!
Keep it up guys.

Hey Gary, thanks for the trip down memory lane. Do come and say hello when you next play out.

When my wife and I got married we had our reception at The Lion Inn we love it so much. Great people and a great place.

Rest assured, financially, things are better now. This tour we covered all costs, had good food every day, and even after having to hire a van doe to ours being in the garage, we all got paid a bit (an 8 way split does mean we don’t make as much as Jedward, but then we’re not idoit buffoons – swings and roundabouts). We have a healthier income stream from music sales than ever before, and it’s a privilege to get to do the shows we do.

Keep it up we most certainly will.
