Hopefield


Started in a dorm room at UC Irvine in October 2004 from laptops demos of Andrew Capra (ex Halfway To Nowhere). Roommate Mark Mikin started working with Capra. They recruited Jojo Casillas (ex Thirty Two) for drums, and dorm-mate Marlo Pabon for guitar. In January 2005 the band recorded a 2-track demo with Robert Lerdsuwanrut (ex Broken Front) in Covina, CA @ Ample Studios, and decided to recruit him on lead guitar in place of Pabon. The band played its first show February 18, 2005 at a smoothie shop in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. Read more on Last.fm

In January 2005 the band recorded a 2-track demo with Robert Lerdsuwanrut (ex Broken Front) in Covina, CA @ Ample Studios, and decided to recruit him on lead guitar in place of Pabon.

The band played its first show February 18, 2005 at a smoothie shop in Rancho Cucamonga, CA. On May 13, 2005 the group released "Pictographs", a self recorded EP. That summer the band went on the road with Forgive Durden and The Stiletto Formal, also playing shows outside the Los Angeles homebase. The band's second home was in San Francisco, as Hopefield retained many fans from Capra's band Halfway To Nowhere.

As 2006 approached, the band began preproduction with producer/engineer Paul Miner (Death By Stereo, Thrice, New Found Glory, Eisley), and wrote what became "Before You Go". The EP was released in the Spring with a big show at the band's home venue, Chain Reaction in Anaheim. Post-release the band did many trips to Northern California, and a few more Arizona shows. The band's efforts were noted and Alternative Press magazine did an unsigned feature on the band, as well as Absolute Punk.

Tour dates continued through the fall and early 2007, slowing down around March. In Summer 2007 the band played with Rufio at their last US show, and toured with Science Fiction Theater. Post-tour the band began collecting demos for a followup, letting go of Lerdsuwanrut, and has emerged only a couple times since for concerts. In Fall 2007 Capra also founded the band Brave Citizens with former Halfway To Nowhere bandmate Adam Bialik, and began playing shows/touring on and off starting in 2008. Read more on Last.fm.
