The Hope Slide is a Canadian band formed in 2008 in Vancouver. The Hope Slide is named after the Hope Slide, a rock slide that occurred early in the morning of January 9, 1965. The Hope Slide's self-titled debut album, released September 28, 2010 on Submerged Records, is something of a concept album befitting the band’s chosen name. The songs deal with disasters and upheavals of all kinds, including the ill-fated Franklin Expedition (“Passage”), the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory fire of 1911 (“In Ashe”), the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, and the impact of the Chernobyl disaster on the surrounding ecosystem (“Red Forest”).
