Cruel Hope is back with the second single from their debut album release cycle, the hard-rocking “Someone To Hate“. “I wrote this song as a sort of “anti love” song,” explains singer-songwriter Liam Horrigan. “The original idea was inspired by Justin Bieber’s cover of “Somebody to Love” by Queen. Some part of me went, “Let’s make the opposite of that”. So I got to work.”
This is the second single in anticipation of the band’s debut album, I’m Not Sick, due out on March 11th.
Cruel Hope is the embodiment of a generation’s bitter struggle to accept that the world they were promised no longer exists, brought to life in the form of modern alternative rock songs by creator Liam Horrigan. Strong melodies akin to those of Rise Against and Green Day deliver unapologetic lyrics about the troubled state of our world, producing anthemic choruses purpose-built to stick within the ears and hearts of today’s youth. Heavy riffs honour proud rock traditions, inspiring comparisons to contemporaries Royal Blood and Cleopatrick. Armed with three singles produced by Kyle Marchant (Nightwell) and a high-octane live act, Cruel Hope is set to explode onto the Toronto, Ontario scene in early 2022.
