Hold Fast Hope came onto the scene in early 2016 when they released their debut single “Fortune Favors” with an accompanying music video directed & filmed by Samuel Halleen (Dance Gavin Dance, August Burns Red). From there the band has gone on to perform a number of shows across Long Island, NYC & New Jersey including performances at Citi Field opening up for a Mets game in the main rotunda and New Jersey Fringe Festival. The 4-piece's sound blends alternative and post-hardcore rhythms and melodies with an overlying ambient texture, with influences ranging from Thrice & Glassjaw to Foxing & Citizen.

Hold Fast Hope recorded their debut 4-track EP at VuDu Studios (Glassjaw, Gates, Hail The Sun) in Port Jefferson, NY with Dom Nastasi & Mike Watts. It is set to be released in Spring 2018 on Downport Records.
