The Hope Slide is an electonica band formed in 2008 in Vancouver. They are named after the Hope Slide, a rock slide that occurred early in the morning of January 9, 1965. Their self-titled debut album, released September 28, 2010 on Submerged Records, is something of a concept album befitting the band’s chosen name. The Hope Slide’s members, Michaela Galloway (vocals, Moog) and John Lucas (guitar, bass, keyboards, beats), were formerly in Hinterland, a band that, through its eight-year, three-album run, consistently made the Canadian college-radio charts, performed all over the country (including on a nationally broadcast TV show), and generally built a cult following.
