I don't understand how anyone could not like this song. It's fantastic. So is the album.

Haven't listened to Chase The White Whale yet, but if it's any bit as good as Bury A Dream then I'm sold on these guys.

Have you listened to their first album (Chase the White Whale)?

Give it a few listens, then get back to us!

It's not the best choice for their next single, pretty underwhelming compared to what else is on this album. However the previous singles they released (Ghosts and Messadona) are absolutely fantastic (the first being one of my favorite tracks from 2012).

It's not a bad song, but it doesn't seem like single material at all.

I got so excited when I saw "new", but then... Oh well. This album rocks.

Do Whatever You Want or Stare Into the Darkness would've been far better choices. Shark Tank is decent but it wouldn't be my go to choice to introduce someone to their sound.

Love these guys

this must be one of my least favourites of the record, but still a solid song

yeah, you're better off introducing them with Shark Cave.

This song is like 2 years old lol.

a very weird song to me to be the "coming out" song for hopeless. and super weird to call this new, especially here when they have been championed for so long. would have gone with, before this one, "Harsh, Harsh, Harsh," or "You're A Legend, Sir" (since we already premiered "Younce Creek" a year ago). idk, i guess it's just, release this song as new on other lame sites, but give us diehards something we haven't jammed before.

All that being said, for no reason at all other than me being the worst, so stoked for these guys to get a real exclusive on this site that people will check out. just wish it was one of their best songs.

What do you think Hopeless will bring to the table for their label debut?

i guess a re-release? more promotion for this band and tours that sell outside of texas are fantastic, but i hope they can record some new songs too.

They've been posting pictures on Instagram of them being in the studio. If I remember correctly they also posted a picture with what seemed to be a bunch of working song titles.
