About The Band

Hallelujah The Hills have been releasing critically acclaimed albums and touring the U.S. since 2007. Described by Spin as “criminally underappreciated” and lauded by Pitchfork for their “fist pumping anthems,” they’ve been declared “Boston legends” in their hometown and as having a “cult following and pockets of hardcore fans scattered throughout the country” by Stereogum. The band released their first two albums on Misra Records, assisted Titus Andronicus in making their breakout album The Monitor, and are one of the only bands to have ever toured with The Silver Jews. The Hills have also worked with Jealous Butcher Records, Re-Vinyl Records, and are the recipients of two Boston Music Awards. Their sound was creatively explained as “the kind of punk rock you’d expect on stage at the roadhouse from ‘Twin Peaks’” in The Boston Herald. Others go further, with Aquarium Drunkard noting “few do it with the style and imagination of Hallelujah the Hills” and Captain’s Dead boldly publishing that they “without a doubt they are one of the greatest bands currently making music.” Their 2014 album Have You Ever Done Something Evil? was named the #1 Overlooked Album of the Year by PopMatters and landed the band on over a dozen year-end best-of lists. The recording of their latest full length, 2016's A Band Is Something To Figure Out, was observed by author M. Jonathan Lee, who is working on a biography of the band. In the press release for their debut album, the band promised to make 33 albums before breaking up.
