DEBUT ALBUM WHAT’S YOUR MOTIVE OUT THIS FRIDAY – PRESAVE
“Robbie Kingsley’s voice is as smooth as ever, but sonically, an electric swagger permeates… that not only holds our attention, but makes us want to move.”– CONSEQUENCE
“The indie/alternative rock sound that they carry so well is something that needs to be heard live if you’re going to get the full experience.”– THE PITCH

Arriving this Friday, The Hails’ debut album, What’s Your Motive, is a progressively zooming out view of what happens in life when you break cycles of complacency. Moving chronologically through the track list, the focus goes from noticing these changes in yourself, to noticing how these changes need to be made in others, and the permanent misalignment you can feel when you don’t grow alongside people you once knew. An album with a worldview that expands as you listen further, What’s Your Motive is a culmination of every coincidence in life that allowed for the five band members to unite under a refined, experimental sonic identity – Presave.
Earlier this year, The Hails spent time on the road supporting The Happy Fits, The Beaches and the moss, all while interspersing their own headline dates and rolling out singles from their upcoming album. Their singles leading up to their LP earned over 1.5 million streams, major national attention from the likes of Billboard and Consequence, as well as regional praise from every market they’ve stepped foot in. Winning over new listeners through the airwaves and from the stage, The Hails have primed themselves for a momentous unleashing of What’s Your Motive on September 8.
ABOUT THE HAILS
Following a string of encounters too strange to be coincidence, Robbie Kingsley, Franco Solari, Dylan McCue, Andre Escobar and Zach Levy came together to form The Hails. Despite first playing in an insular Miami high school music scene, the band officially formed at the University of Florida in Gainesville, turning the tattered carpeting and beer bottle lined shelves of their shitty college house into a distinct, refined sound that is now synonymous with their name.
After graduation, the group made the pilgrimage back to their home of Miami, the city that directly influenced the sound of their early shimmering singles “Younger” and “Stay,” debut EP He Seems Upset (2020), and the subsequent Alive in Strange Ways (2021). Recent highlights of the road include holding court at festivals including III Points, WonderStruck and Okeechobee, interspersed between sold-out shows across the state of Florida, and tour support for WILLIS, The Happy Fits, The Beaches and the moss.
Firing the starting pistol of their next chapter, The Hails began rolling out the singles from their debut album What’s Your Motive, which will arrive on September 8. The band’s new era has earned them praise from Billboard, Consequence, EARMILK and many others, as well as editorial support on Spotify’s All New Indie, Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds Indie playlists. Beginning this September, The Hails will bring their new music to the road on their first ever headline tour.
