Matt Hires has announced the release of his eagerly awaited sophomore album. This World Won’t Last Forever, But Tonight We Can Pretend, will be released on August 13th.

The new album sees Hires driving his distinctive sound forward with grander arrangements, brighter hooks, and a more richly textured sonic approach. Produced by Eric Rosse, songs like “Restless Heart” and the sophisticated, string-laden “Forever,” are alight with remarkable melodies and intricate harmonies, a stunning showcase for Hires’ masterful vocal work and unwavering artistic integrity.

The Tampa based tunesmith also collaborated with songwriters like Alex Dezen (singer/guitarist for The Damnwells) and Busbee, resulting in delicately rendered lyrics that shift between sharp-eyed social commentary and strikingly intimate storytelling. “My favorite artists are the ones who keep making records that give you something different from what came before,” says Hires, “but still hold onto their own unique sound overall. With this album, I pushed into the direction of making music that’s more fun and pop-oriented but also retains that sense of honesty that I’ve always valued as a songwriter.”

Following the release of the new album, Hires will join Parachute on a U.S. tour, kicking off August 13th at New York City’s famed Irving Plaza. The tour will run throughout September, with a final stop in Dallas, TX on September 22nd at the House of Blues. To see the upcoming tour dates with Parachute, visit
