Old Friends Records, the new sister label of Fearless Records, has signed Hellogoodbye.Â The band is currently in the studio with multi-Grammy Award winning producer Joe Chiccarelli (The White Stripes, The Strokes), recording a new full-length studio album slated for an April 2013 release.Â To tide fans over, the label willÂ Would It Kill You? as a digital deluxe edition on December 18th. It will feature three live tracks from Daytrotterâ€™s Barnstormer Tour and the previously unreleased B-Side â€œNot Ever Coming Home.â€ A message from front-man Forrest Kline, as well as a teaser video, can be seen below.
Weâ€™ve had some exciting news in our pockets for a while over here at hellogoodbye: our next full length record (which weâ€™re about halfway through tracking with producer Joe Chiccarelli) will be released next year by the new label Old Friends Records!
Not since we released our first high school demo cassette on â€˜Awkward Teenagers singing about Dawsonâ€™s Creek Recordsâ€™ have we been involved with such a serendipitously named record label! Back when I was an awkward teen singing about Dawsonâ€™s Creek, I worked at the offices with the good folks at Old Friends.
It rules to be circling back around with good people and weâ€™ve got a bunch of great stuff on the horizon like: a Would It Kill You? re-release (special vinyl and a live acoustic party set bundle) &: this new record, which is shaping up to be my favorite bit of work Iâ€™ve tackled! So much more to come!
