Following the release of their Brand New Moves EP today, alt-pop band HEY VIOLET announce a one-off headline show in Sydney at The Lair at The Metro on Thursday, October 6th.
The L.A.-based band is currently touring with 5 Seconds Of Summer on their Sounds Live Feels LiveTour. With a loyal and passionate fanbase built through non-stop touring, along with their well-received debut EP, 2015’s I Can Feel It, Hey Violet revealed their bold, new, synth-driven sound with Brand New Moves this week, which debuts at the #1 artist album on iTunes in the U.S. and U.K. The band recently premiered their new song “Brand New Moves” which has already racked up more than 650,000 Spotify streams.
The band has been in the studio for the past six months co-writing the songs with producer Julian Bunetta. “We mixed the tracks a bit ’80s style with more synths and drums that sound really fat and big with a groove,” says lead singer Rena Lovelis who has stepped up to assume frontwoman duties. “We’re ready and excited to share what we’ve been working on!”
Tickets for this special one night only show go on sale at 10am this Friday, August 19th. For complete tour and ticketing information, visit: livenation.com.au.
Hey Violet — which is Rena, her sister Nia Lovelis (drums), Miranda Miller (keys, vocals) and Casey Moreta (lead guitar) — have been playing together for several years, and making music individually since they were old enough to ask for lessons. After signing with Hi Or Hey Records last year, Hey Violet got their first taste of rock stardom last year when thousands of fans poured into the streets of Europe and the U.K. at their spontaneous acoustic sets documented HERE. I Can Feel It went to #1 on iTunes in five countries, including the U.K., and Top 5 in 10 other countries.
