Winter blues got you down? Welp, we’ve got a cure for that, right here with How It Should Be, the new LP from Wes Hoffman & Friends. Ten tracks of melodic pop/skate-punk that will warm your frozen heart and get you out of that mid-winter funk. How It Should be drops February 23rd, but you can get your hands on a copy now! Check out the sweet limited vinyl variants we have including the Baby Blue/White A/B split color vinyl, Neon Coral with Smoke, and the always classic Black available now through our Limited Run store and Bandcamp page.

To help celebrate the occasion New Noise magazine is premiering a lyric video for the latest single “Paper Hearts”. Here’s what Wes had to say about the new single..

“Paper Hearts is one of my favorite songs on the album and is about getting closure on a relationship or friendship that has ended. It’s somewhat of a letter to the person, telling them your thoughts on how things went south. You’re cutting up paper hearts, and putting them in the letter to finally end that chapter of the story. The song’s opening line ‘This is how it should be,’ is the inspiration for the album title.”

Wes and the boys are hitting the road this and next month with some select dates as well.
