Local punk/metal/goth/hardcore outfit Hopes Abandoned is gaining fans accross North America and Europe. Fast. While Aussie bands are hardly scarce on such sites as Purevolume.com and MySpace, Hopes Abandoned is leading the charge for Vic bands, hitting triple digits in both plays AND page views on Purevolume.com IN LESS THAN 2 WEEKS, and quickly closing in on local faves Carpathian and Antiskeptic, with an average of 12 plays per day. Within just one week of uploading 3 new songs, the band was charting alongside such U.S. hardcore heavy-hitters as P.O.D., On Broken Wings, ClosedHandPromise and The Blood Brothers, among others.
