After watching them play a high-energy set to a packed house at Union Transfer on Saturday night, we are psyched to announce this morning that Philadelphia’s Hop Along will join us this July for the XPoNential Music Festival.

Last week the four piece released its third LP, Painted Shut, via Saddle Creek Records, and we explored it all week long on The Key’s Unlocked series. The remarkable album blends anthemic rock and roll songwriting emotional, poetic lyrical stories and finds the band in top form. Check out the song “I Saw My Twin” below and get more information at the XPoNential Music Festival website.
