HELLOGOODBYE - UK Tour Dates Announced - On sale Sat 9th April 10am


California-based pop/rock band HELLOGOODBYE return with their eagerly anticipated second full-length 'Would It Kill You?' – out now through LAB Records and a series of UK tour dates starting on 27th May.

It is the band's first release since 2006's 'Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!' peaked at number 17 in the UK album charts and spawned hit single 'Here (In Your Arms)' which reached number 4 and was certified platinum in the US.

A lot has changed since then. Over the past four years the band have parted with Drive-Thru Records, retooled their line-up, released a handful of EPs and performed everywhere from the Philippines to living rooms. All of these cumulative experiences play into 'Would It Kill You?' a collection of perfect pop gems that not only proves that HELLOGOODBYE are still relevant but affirms that if anything, they’ve sharpened their musical edge over the past few years—and looking back, the band’s frontman Forrest Kline sees the time away as an amazing opportunity to hone his craft without pressure.

“I’m super slow at everything no matter what I do,” Kline explains when asked what the process of writing and recording Would It Kill You?  was like. “If I’m going to clean out my closet it’ll take me all day because I’ll empty out the whole thing, then I’ll paint it, then I’ll tear off the drawers and get new hardware. Everything becomes a process and musically it’s the same thing,” he continues with a laugh.  The result is a record that is more meaningful, indie than precocious pop. 'Would It Kill You?' is produced by Matt Mahaffey (Beck, Tenacious D).
