Hop Along is an indie folk-rock band from Philadelphia, formerly known as Hop Along, Queen Ansleis.
Hop Along began as an acoustic freak folk solo project known as Hop Along, Queen Ansleis in 2004, during Frances Quinlan's senior year in high school. This led to the release of the album Freshman Year in the summer of 2005. Three years later, in 2008, drummer Mark Quinlan (Frances Quinlan's brother) joined the project, followed by bassist Tyler Long in 2009. In light of the new formation, the name was shortened, possibly to better reflect the change from solo project to full band. Hop Along went on to release an EP, Wretches, in 2009, and a full-length LP entitled Get Disowned on May 5, 2012, winning a highly positive critical response from the independent music press. In October 2014, Hop Along signed to indie rock label Saddle Creek Records, which released the band's third full-length record, Painted Shut, on May 4, 2015 to wider acclaim.
