    i know i dont tell you all the time or anything, but you really mean alot to me. even if i dont say it in so many words, you know that im a great listener and i hope you can see how much you inspire me. i cant wait till i can see you sometime in the future. ive even considered coming out to your place, just so we can spend some time together, but right now the finances wont allow it. im hoping our paths can cross soon though, i really need more of you in my life. i wish everyone could have the experiences with you that i have, they would be much better people for it.

    thats all. i love you.

    hahahha....looks like someone has a little jesus in their heart....
    regardless of the fact that those guys are a christian band i will say that i listened to them and they are phenomenal musicians....hardcore kids must feel bad theres a bunch of little christians running around schooling them at their own game....
    i noticed they are from an area very close to me, i would actually consider going to see them if there wasnt such a high risk of jesus bombardment....

    ok....im conviced....these guys are cool

    .hopesfall. Interview

    I interviewed Josh, the guitar player in .hopesfall. by email. I didn't know much about .hopesfall. to begin with and the answers were totually different to what I was expecting. I was actually very pleased with them. Thank you Josh for taking time to do this interview for me.

    Give us a brief description of the band.
    Hey this is Josh, I play guitar in .hopesfall. We are a heavy rock band that focuses on playing melodic, inspiring, passionate music. People have described us "emocore" and "hXc w/ emo parts" but we really feel like the music is heavy melodic rock with breakdowns and screaming and singing.

    .hopesfall. is a christian band... Do you think when people know that before they listen to hopesfall, they are expecting relgion based lyrics?
    That's a common misconception. .hopesfall. is NOT a christian band. We have never claimed to be one. However, we are all christians, but we don't wish to shove our beliefs on anyone. The emphasis in this band has been and always will be writing creative music. Lyrically, we write about situations we deal with, things that inspire us, and our collective pasts. Christ has some influence on that because we have relationships with him, so you can definatly see a spiritual side to some of the lyrics. But we do not preach and we do not believe in telling others what they should believe. We want to play shows in the scene for everyone, not just an audience that likes us because they think we believe like them.

    Do you think people who are athiest will not listen to hopesfall because you label yourself as a christian band? what are you're views on this??
    We don't label ourselves as a Christian band. We have had tons of athiests tell us they enjoy our music and appreciate the fact that we aren't trying to convert them from the stage. When it comes down to it, what you believe isn't going to matter if you don't rock. If you do rock and somebody doesn't appreciate your rock based on your beliefs, than that is their loss, and I'm not concerned with closeminded people.

    Do you think religion has a place in hardcore??
    hXc means alot of different things to alot of different people. For me, hXc is about music, not ethics, if I go to a show, Iwant to see a band rock. I don't want to hear them preach, and I don't care what they believe. However, I realize that the stage is a forum for expressing your beliefs, so if a band chooses to do that, I don't disprespect them, but I would rather just hear them play.

    What were your reasons for starting hopesfall? What direction have you wanted while in this band? Do you think you've suceeded what you aimed for?
    We started this band to play rock. We want to continue to write good music and play shows. I guess that we have been succesful enough to not quit yet, so as long as we move in a direction that we feel is forward, we will keep going.

    What is the main message you want to make reach other people, which isn't relgion based??
    The main message we have is rock and roll. But if I was going to use this band to convey a point, I would say to people, "Question what you have been taught to think about everything". Music, religion, school, work...Question it all...and search for the answers, because believing in something blindly is a waste of time. Find out why you believe what you believe and you will be a stronger person for it.

    You are goign to be recording in a few months. How much has the sound and message changed?
    The sound is going to be heavier, yet less hardocre...more melodic yet less emo, with an emphasis and high altitude space rock and breakdowns that make you want to hurt yourself and/or others. The lyrics deal with alienation and disappointment. We would say the new ep is going to be a much more mature work of art that the last album.

    Is there anything else you'd like to meantion?
    The new weezer is out. What are you waiting for? Josh and .hopesfall.

    so the moral of the story, which ive been pointing to all along, is that they FUCKING ROCK. my favorite movie is 'jesus christ superstar' why would i not like a band cause they were christian? thats as gay as rollerblading in hotpants.
