Hop Along is an indie folk-rock band from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, formerly known as Hop Along, Queen Ansleis.[1]

History[edit]

Hop Along began as an acoustic freak folk solo project in 2004, during Frances Quinlan's senior year in high school, then known as Hop Along, Queen Ansleis,[2] which eventually resulted in the release of the album Freshman Year in the summer of 2005.[3] Three years later, in 2008, drummer Mark Quinlan (Frances Quinlan's brother) joined the project, followed by bassist Tyler Long in 2009. In light of the new formation, the name was shortened, possibly to better reflect the change from solo project to full band.[4] Thus far, Hop Along has released one EP, Wretches, in 2009, and one full-length LP, entitled Get Disowned, which was released on May 5, 2012[5] to a highly positive critical response from independent music press.[6][7][8][9]

  • Freshman Year (released under the name Hop Along, Queen Ansleis) (2005)
