Hallelujah the Hills is an American indie rock band from Boston, Massachusetts, formed in 2005. They have been hailed by the Boston Phoenix as "one of Boston's most prized pop possessions", received a 3 1/2 star review for their debut in Rolling Stone Magazine, and have been praised by Pitchfork Media as having a "knack for crafting fist-pumping anthems from absurdist word clusters."
The band was signed to Misra Records in 2006 on which they released their first two full length albums. They have toured with the Silver Jews, co-written a song with Triumph the Insult Comic Dog, collaborated with author Jonathan Lethem, helped orchestrate and tour the Titus Andronicus album The Monitor, and have had a live performance interrupted by Chevy Chase.
Their third full-length album, No One Knows What Happens Next, which they funded with a successful Kickstarter project, was called "a daring move" by Prefix Magazine and a "gorgeous start-to-finish listen" by The Weekly Dig.
In May 2013 the band released a collection of b-sides, non-album tracks, and rarities entitled Portrait Of The Artist As A Young Trashcan. In a recent profile in The Boston Herald the band was singled out for their recent turn of writing about writing. "It takes genius to write a great song about writing a song. So how is it Hallelujah The Hills has done it twice in two years?"  The band is currently writing and rehearsing their fourth full length album which they are taking pre-orders for all of October 2013 on Kickstarter.
