Hoops Reunite, Share First New Song Since 2019 + Announce NYC Show

Indiana's Hoops released their critically-acclaimed debut album Routines in 2017, and, soon after, announced an indefinite hiatus to focus on life outside of the band. Today Hoops announce they are back together after a short but necessary break, and share their first new song in 2+ years. Welcome the band back, and listen to "They Say" HERE.

Hoops also announce today their first live show since the start of their hiatus, an NYC headline show next month. Get your tickets to see them at The Dance in Manhattan on December 4th HERE.

Hoops was born in frontman Drew Auscherman's teenage bedroom as a solo ambient and beat-driven project à la Oneohtrix Point Never's Replica. Auscherman named the band after the hoop houses at the nursery where he worked (not for his home state's mania for basketball). Eventually he corralled a few of his friends to flesh out his songs, and the music inevitably shifted toward something new: more melodic, more guitar-driven, more extroverted. Come 2017, Hoops had released three cassette tapes, a self-titled EP, and and their debut LP Routines which earned them heaps of praise from press, spins from radio stations across the country, and a track that hit #2 on Spotify's Global and U.S. Viral Charts. The band soon after disbanded, which - fortunately for us - did not last long.

Hoops is Drew Auscherman (vox, guitar), Kevin Krauter (vox, bass), and Keagan Beresford (vox, keys, guitar).
