Hope of the States were an English post rock-influenced indie band from Chichester.
The group named themselves after a 1930s paper on the state of the mental health system in the USA. They were discovered after sending a demo to the Planet Sound teletext page and were signed to Sony BMG. The band survived tragedy (guitarist James Lawrence committed suicide in January 2004) and achieved critical acclaim with their album The Lost Riots which went straight into the UK Top 40 album chart. The first single, Black Dollar Bills, was packaged in a hessian sleeve, each hand-sewn by a band member and later a collectors' item. Though the band's musical roots were in the heavily instrumental post-rock tradition of bands such as Mogwai, the album saw them blending this, to the disappointment of some, with more conventional indie rock fare.
The band's most extensive UK tour started in October 2004, beginning with a date in Belfast's Mandela Hall.
Much of 2005 was spent in the recording studio, with only 6 live sets played, as the band worked hard on their follow up to The Lost Riots. An acoustic performance in London gave glimpses of many songs which Sam confirmed will accompany the group's second album, Left.
The band worked with fansite 'The Halfway Home' to produce an advent calendar for the runup to Christmas 2005. The only studio recording released in 2005 was the final day's surprise, the song 'Shalom'
In April 2006 the band released a new EP, Blood Meridian, accompanied by a low-key UK tour which began in the Leeds Cockpit. The EP was limited to 2000 copies, available on vinyl, and was also available for download. The single Sing it Out was released in June 2006 and got to No. 39, and the new album Left was also released in June on the 19th.
The band appeared at the Reading Festival and the Leeds Festival on the August bank holiday weekend;along with the T in the park festival on the 8th of July. They played on the BBC Radio 1/NME stage. During their set on Sunday 27 August at Reading Festival, it emerged it may be their last ever show as the band were splitting up. This rumour was reinforced later in the day by friends Broken Social Scene who dedicated their festival set to the band. On 30 August 2006, Sam Herlihy made a statement on the band's forum confirming the split and that Reading was their last ever show. Simon Jones and Mike Siddell also confirmed that the band were to split in the same thread.
