The August installment of our 2016 singles series. Features Kenny Leckie from Carnivores/Diamond Christ/Real Ghosts on additional vocals.


On dark days and cold nights
The conscience of society crumbles

They left you alone
With the tales on which you were fed

Hopes and dreams collapse into screams
Like carbon crushed into diamond

They left you alone
With the tales on which you were fed
And now you feel the weight of the earth
On your shoulders breaking your bones

And now they can
Measure your worth
Crush you to diamonds
Cold and collapsing


from Death by Inches, track released August 31, 2016
Recorded and produced by Lewis Glass at Glassworks Studio Recording

Additional vocals by Kenny Leckie. Check out his band/s Carnivores, Real Ghosts, and Diamond Christ. They're all dead good.




False Hopes Glasgow, UK

False Hopes are four guys from Glasgow who play some kind of punky hardcore, or hardcorey punk. Depending on who you ask.

In 2016 we released a song a month. In 2017 we released em all on limited edition cassette and titled it 'Death By Inches', because that's what it's like when you release a song a month for a year.

Also purveyors of shite chat.
