Hellogoodbye to Perform at Madison Square Garden, 11/13; Tour Dates Announced
Hellogoodbye's Everything is Debatable is out today on Old Friends Records. MTV Buzzworthy declares "the electro-powered chorus squeezes wordless vocal hooks next to Kline's lyrics and funky guitar chords, as disco drums keep the beat moving" and Alternative Press hails the album as "an expertly produced indie-pop record."
The video for the album's title track can be streamed and shared on Vevo at http://bit.ly/16ZOI5R. NYLON raves that the track "is the easiest way to kick off your morning on the right foot." To celebrate the release the band is currently on a nationwide tour with Paramore and Metric. "Forrest Kline's frenetic indie pop is an interesting choice to open the show," says the Seattle Times. Please see complete tour dates below.
Everything is Debatable is the band's first studio release since 2010's Would It Kill You? and follows their self-released digital live album Did It Kill You? Recorded throughout 2012 and 2013 in Nashville, San Francisco, Long Beach and Los Angeles, the new album was produced by Joe Chiccarelli (The Strokes, The White Stripes, My Morning Jacket) and Hellogoodbye frontman Forrest Kline with additional production by Carlos De La Garza (Paramore, M83). NYLON recently premiered the title track from the album and declared, "credit the happy-go-lucky melody, the 'do do dos' that lead up to the exuberant chorus, or just the toe-tapping beats, but 'Everything Is Debatable' is the easiest way to kick off your morning."
Founded in 2001 by singer Forrest Kline, Hellogoodbye released their first full-length, the acclaimed Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!, in 2006. That album's single "Here (In Your Arms)" went platinum in the U.S. and reached Top 20 on Billboard's Hot 100. In the wake of the 2006 album's success, the band appeared on "The Tonight Show with Jay Leno," "The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson" and "Last Call with Carson Daly," as well as at Reading and Leeds festivals, Rock En Seine in Paris and Pukkelpop in Belgium.
