Hellogoodbye- Official Blue Microphones Podcast by Blue Microphones published on 2011/05/18 04:16:29 +0000 A group of quirky, fun-loving emo-rockers from California, Hellogoodbye seem to take as much influence from modern pop-punk as they do from the original Nintendo sound bleeps that held children captive in the late '80s. Formed by high-school friends in 2002, the group infused its playful brand of indie power pop with sugary sweetness, catchy dance beats, and enough energy to tire a group of five-year-olds. Hellogoodbye, named after a quote from Saved by the Bell's Screech Powers, is comprised of Forrest Kline, Joseph Marro, Travis Head, Michael Nielsen, and Andrew Richards. They were signed to Drive-Thru Records and released their first full-length album Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs! in 2006, in addition to their previously released EP Hellogoodbye and DVD OMG HGB DVD ROTFL. In 2010, the band released Would It Kill You? on their label Wasted Summer Records. The album was released in the United Kingdom and European Union by LAB Records on the 14th March 2011. Most recently, Hellogoodbye came off of the 2011 Warped Tour.
