In summer 2023, the band joined Depeche Mode for European concerts on their Memento Mori Tour. Hope are currently preparing for their commissioned work for Pop-Kultur Berlin, for which they have teamed up with British filmmaker and video artist Emma Critchley.

The band first gained recognition for their self-titled 2017 debut album, which they performed at Eurosonic Noorderslaag, Reeperbahn Festival, Liverpool Soundcity and SXSW. Hope toured throughout Europe, and supported Bauhaus, Idles and Algiers.

In October 2023, the band released their second album, Navel. 

Hope’s music has been featured in films and TV series, including Shame as the title track for the series The Allegation, as well as in the film Je Suis Karl, Netflix series Control Z and in the snowboard film Cake.
