After years of touring in true indie DIY fashion, and occasionally supporting friends like Kings of Leon and Rooney on national tours, Hello Stranger are excited to finally get a rider and a proper sound check. But paying their dues has prepared the foursome for these shows where they will be playing tracks from their upcoming release.
The new record will follow the band's 2006 self-titled debut, a unique blend of folky-dance-rock, released on indie label Aeronaut Records. Hello Stranger are currently in the studio with producer Mike Elizondo (Maroon 5, Rilo Kiley, Fiona Apple), where the band's heavier side has started to emerge on tracks like "Big Boots" and "Gimme Back My Wig" -- songs with a power made for the stadium. - http://www.myspace.com/hellostrangermusic
