Bio: The Hobbes Fanclub and Shelflife Records are proud to announce the release of the highly anticipated debut album "Up At Lagrange" on CD / LP / and Digital Download on August 19th.

The Hobbes Fanclub hails from post-industrial Northern England town of Bradford. Singer/Guitarist Leon Carroll started off as one person under a band name releasing two split CD-R singles on the Cloudberry and Dufflecoat indie-pop labels in 2008. Shortly after these singles, Leon was joined by Louise and Adam on bass and drums respectively filling in the rhythm section. They released their smash debut 7" "Your Doubting Heart" on Shelflife in August 2012 and came over to play the NYC Popfest last year. Now they're ready to unleash their debut album and we can't wait to share it with the world!

"Up At Lagrange" packs a feedback punch to the face, hitting you with the perfect amount of distortion, feedback and melody. The energy and attitude of the early 90s is heard throughout the album, full of restrained production values and classic song structures. They show off their knack for writing catchy boy/girl vocal melodies up against hazy, overdriven guitars and pounding rhythms. "Up At Lagrange" is a refreshingly diverse album that will leave you wanting to listen on repeat til the grooves wear thin or the foil inside the CD begins to fade.

The band is touring extensively this summer in the UK, playing Indietracks and other festivals to support the record.
