In the latest Alternative press, Forrest of Hellogoodbye is quoted as saying:
"The bigger a band is, the more horrible things will be said about them, regardless of what they do. If you ever read (punk-gossip website) Absolutepunk.net, you'll hate yourself inside, no matter what."
Hellogoodbye have just annnounced a costume contest, which you can check out here. Also if you are interested, they have a new fan newsletter that you can sign up for here! They have also finished shooting their video for "Here (In Your Arms)" and it will be premiering next week.
According to Wikipedia, hellogoodbye's video for "Here In Your Arms" will be directed by Fred Savage (The Wonder Years). The concept features a sleep away camp whose counselors, unbeknownst to the campers, turn into zombies at night that like to have dance parties under the stars.
Here is the Hellogoodbye e-card. Their debut full-length Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs! comes out August 8th on Drive-Thru Records. Preorder the album and a limited edition poster for $10; the link is in the e-card.
