The April installment of our 2016 single series.

Also featured on the Stuck Dum Records Compilation.


There’s a fire on the Clyde and you’re gasping for air,
It’s the sun’s reflection on the eyes of despair,
Close your eyes, lift your head and have no fear.

You’re lying down low and you’re struggling to breathe,
Your voice is getting thin and your lungs start to heave,
There’s a pain in your chest where your heart should be,
It’s a hole where feelings go and there’s no reprieve.

You don’t want this, but you need this – it’s your darkest hell.
You can’t see this, but you feel this – it’s your lowest ebb.

So close your eyes son and take the leap,
There’s nothing left but the soles of your feet,
You can turn this around if you wipe off the tears.
Like a kiss from a stranger it’s a cold hearted danger.


from Death by Inches, track released April 30, 2016
Guitars, drums and bass recorded in our riff dungeon.
Vocals recorded by George Gillies at Meadow Studios.

Recorded, mixed, mastered and produced by Boab Rammy.

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.
