Left is the second and final album by the band Hope of the States, released on June 19, 2006. It was released on CD, DualDisc CD/DVD, and as a limited edition double 10" vinyl. The album was preceded by two singles, the limited edition "Blood Meridian EP" and "Sing It Out", which reached #39 in the singles charts. The album itself reached #50 on the UK album charts on its initial release.

The album was described as slightly more accessible and guitar-oriented than were the tracks on Hope of the States's debut, The Lost Riots.

There followed a further single, the title track Left, which charted at #63 in August 2006, shortly before the band announced their split.[1]
