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 via Escho Records.
