  1. Magnetic North

    Magnetic North is the fourth full-length album released by the hardcore band Hopesfall. Josh Brigham, one of the guitarists and the only founding member remaining during the recording of the album, has said: "Our music has always been spacey and heavy, and we use those roots, combined with our love of grunge-era Smashing Pumpkins, Dinosaur Jr., HUM, and Pixies, we add some bigger, heavier riffs. "We all admire bands that can morph and change with each album, and that is what we try to do. Expect change and progression, in both songwriting and overall style, on the new album." During the period before this album's release, the band released a new song from the album on their MySpace page each week for the ten weeks prior to the release date. "Bird Flu" was previously released on the compilation album Trustkill Takeover Vol. 2.
