Automatic Love – New Single & Video Out Now

12th January 2016 | Kris

Hey! Hello!’s new single Automatic Love is out now, from the forthcoming album ‘Hey! Hello! Too!’, a pure unadulterated volume driven rock ’n’ roll anthem

Automatic Love is available to download from iTunes, Amazon and to stream from Spotify.

“The video is a deliberately stark introduction of the new line up, complete with new vocalist Hollis. We didn’t want anything flash, and preferred to let the music be the main focus.

It’s raw, it’s loud and sounds like the weekend. This is the sound of partying, sex, trouble, fun, hangovers and extreme behaviour of all persuasions, take from that what you will.

We’re bringing rock n roll back in 2016, and you better believe we mean that 100%.”

December Hey! Hello! Tour & Birthday Show Postponed – Official Statement

It is with regret that Hey! Hello! have to announce the postponement of the upcoming Hey! Hello! UK tour, and Ginger Wildheart’s birthday show on December 17th.

The shows have been postponed due to Ginger being clinically diagnosed with acute depression and the shows are currently being rescheduled for 2016.

The band offer their “sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused to anyone who was intending to travel to these December shows.” and Ginger’s official statement reads…

‘Gutted to have to postpone the Hey! Hello! tour, but the band have been super supportive and I’m very proud to part of this beautiful bunch.

I’m gutted to miss seeing Dirt Box Disco play too, as they’ve recently become my favourite band and I hope they’ll join us for the rescheduled dates in 2016.

But mostly I’ve been blown away by the fans response. I’m very lucky to have such supportive people in my life. Thank you for being so kind with your concern.

We’ll get this beat, and I’ll see you next year when I feel better.

Have a cool yule, y’all.

Gx’
