Hope & Failure is a Portland-based Ethereal-Doom-Folk band comprised of Rhone Lachner (vocals, guitar, flute, cello), Mikey Romay (drums, synth), Max Baker (bass), and a revolving accompaniment of strings.

Hope & Failure’s sound navigates between delicate, atmospheric, and heavy cathartic moments, inspired by influences such as Portishead, Jesu, Yob, and Enya.

They are planning to record their first studio album in winter of 2023 with a release in the Summer of 2024.
