Single release: 'Fallen' by First Hate
Release date: Out now
More info: Band Soundcloud

Rising from the snake pit into the international spotlight; the journey continues for First Hate. It all began with the self-titled debut EP ‘First Hate’ (Bad Actors Inc., September 2014), which featured hit singles 'Girls In The Club' and 'In My Dreams', music that transcended genres transforming the Copenhagen underground scene. It was a steady climb for the two Copenhageners, who have spent time on the road with Trentemøller, Communions, Iceage and Lust For Youth. Summer 2015 was spent in the studio producing their follow-up EP ‘The Mind Of A Gemini’ (Escho, March 2016). Sold out headline shows at Lille Vega, Copenhagen and The Waiting Room, London proved the band's popularity was now hitting a wider more mainstream audience with singles 'White Heron' and 'Trojan Horse' getting heavy rotation on national radio.

The rest of the year was spent on the road touring mostly throughout Europe with additional tours in China and North America. A key festival highlight was the triumphant headlining set on the Countdown Stage at Roskilde Festival. Spring 2017 saw the release of their highly anticipated debut album ‘A Prayer For The Unemployed’, which was released May 12th 2017 via Escho. It was  produced by First Hate with guidance by Troels Damgaard Holm and Malthe Fischer.

Now, the duo share the visuals for their latest single 'Fallen', which you can watch HERE

Press support for First Hate

“Alongside their arrogance there is empathy and the feeling that First Hate want their music to reach out and actually mean something.” – Pitchfork

“First Hate is a compelling balance of beatific and elegiac pop” – The FADER

 “You’d have to be made of stone not to fall for the elegiac wonder spun by Copenhagen duo First Hate... This and the rest of their back catalogue mark them out as an exciting new voice in the burgeoning nostalgia-tinged comedown-pop scene” – The Guardian
