This is the critically acclaimed second album from Cork band, Hope is Noise. It was recorded during the summer of 2009 by the band and Ciaran O'Shea (Cyclefly).
“Under Friendly Fire” is a relentless record that sees them progressing to new heights with their caustic post-hardcore assault. Visceral guitars, anthemic choruses and polemical lyrics combine to produce a record that from start to finish is all killer, no filler."
Rock Sound Magazine.
"If the untimely demise of both Hot Snakes and Far has left you yearning for an act to assume the mantle of post-hardcore heroes, then look no further than Cork's Hope is Noise. Under Friendly Fire is their second record and it's a bloodthirsty, ugly-as-an-open wound piece of work that offers catharsis by way of punk rock riffs and impassioned vocals. While the band have (for some unknown reason) yet to get the mainstream acclaim they deserve, this album cound not only see them to get their dues in Ireland, but on a worldwide scale. Inspiring stuff."
