Hey! Hello! UK tour postponed – band seek new vocalist
We have just been informed by the press agent of Hey! Hello! that the upcoming UK dates in April have been postponed until further notice. Refunds can be issued from point of purchase.
This is due to geographical complications with lead singer, Hollis Mahady with her recent decision to relocate to Los Angeles as well as her commitments with Love Zombies. As of now, Hey! Hello! are looking for another singer.
The official statement: “We are bitterly sorry to see our singer leave the band at this point, but we respect her decision and wish her nothing but good luck in the future. Right now, our main concern is finding a new front person – male or female – to lead our band to world domination. If you have the star quality that Hey! Hello! needs then get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. The world is waiting for you.”
Hollis has issued the following statement: “As everyone knows I recently became the new singer of Hey! Hello!. I was privileged enough to do shows with Hey!Hello! and work alongside Ginger and the rest of the band and record the Hey! Hello! Too! album which has recently been digitally released. I recently made the decision to relocate back to Los Angeles. While living in England I was ready and able to do everything in my power to become a permanent member of Hey! Hello!. Now, due to geographical restrictions along with commitments to Love Zombies it is no longer a long term possibility and it isn’t feasible for me to remain in both bands. I want to thank Ginger and the band for the opportunity they have given me to be part of such a wonderful band and experience. I have enjoyed every moment and wish everyone the very best. I am again truly sorry for the inconvenience and disappointment this may have caused.”
X-Ray Touring , Hey! Hello!’s Live Agent have also stated: “It is disappointing that things did not work out with Hollis. Unfortunately, it was becoming more and more difficult in a geographical sense for her to continue to be in the band. I wish Hollis the best of luck in her endeavours, and her future with Love Zombies and also wish Hey Hello much luck in securing a replacement as soon as possible. Unfortunately this means however, that the upcoming tour in April/May has had to be cancelled. Full refunds will be available at point of purchase.”
They have also issued out a new video for Let’s Get Emotional, which you can check out above.
