I’m an impatient person so after two EPs it was natural to crave a debut album from Los Angeles-based alt pop band Hey Violet. The group has come a long way since their I Can Feel It days, but traces of the rocker vibes can be detected in various songs. Since being signed by 5 Seconds of Summer’s label through Capitol Records and working with Julian Bunetta (who’s worked with One Direction) you just knew this group was bound for success.
I remember leaving 5 Seconds of Summer’s Sounds Live Feels Live tour last summer and telling my friends Hey Violet was on the brink of success. So would you believe that just eight months later I was hearing them perform sold-out show? When I saw the group, they were a four piece but now with newest bandmate, Ian Shipp, they’re on their first U.S. headlining tour and made a little stop in Dallas, Texas where they performed at the Cambridge Room in the House of Blues.
