First Hate Shares “Copenhagen” Single

Danish duo First Hate shares their new single “Copenhagen” via FADER who calls it “a compelling balance of beatific and elegiac pop.” The track is the first single from the band’s highly anticipated debut album A Prayer For The Unemployed due for release May 12th via Copenhagen-based record label Escho. You can stream and share the track here.

First Hate also announces a string of European tour dates in support of the release this Spring. You can find current dates and more info on the band and album below. Stay tuned for additional international tour dates to follow.

Rising from the snake pit into the international spotlight, it’s been a short and steady climb for Copenhagen duo First Hate. Since the release of their self-titled debut EP in September 2014, which featured hit singles “Girls In The Club” and “In My Dreams”, the band showcased early on music that transcends genres, making the underground more accessible through piercing beats. In support of the EP, they toured with both Trentemøller (October 2014) and Iceage (April 2015).

Summer 2015 was spent in the studio which resulted in the follow-up EP The Mind Of A Gemini (released on Escho in March 2016). Headline shows at Lille Vega in Copenhagen and Tape in Aarhus proved the band’s steady rise was now hitting a bigger audience, with singles “White Heron” and “Trojan Horse” getting heavy rotation on national radio. 2016 found the band on the road with fellow Copenhageners Lust For Youth around Europe plus tours across Asia and North America and festival dates across the world including a notable triumphant set headlining the Countdown Stage at Roskilde Festival.

First Hate’s debut album A Prayer For The Unemployed is due for release on May 12th via Escho Records.
