Biography

Huntington Beach, Los Angeles CA, United States (2001 – present)

Hellogoodbye is a band, formed in Huntington Beach, California in 2001. They were signed to Drive-Thru Records where they released an EP, CD, and a DVD. Their first full-length album entitled Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs! was released in August 2006. They are renowned for their DIY ethic, their shrill outfits and having a particularly close relationship with their fans. The band achieved fame due to their appearances on MTV’s The Real World: Austin and winning MTV2’s Dew Circuit Breakout.

History

The band Hellogoodbye was initiated in 2001 as a recording project by Huntington Beach High School student Forrest Kline. With the aid of fellow student Jesse Kurvink, Kline started recording synthesized power pop songs on his computer, which originally only served the purpose of entertaining their friends. However, as more and more of their songs appeared on MP3.com, Hellogoodbye’s fanbase grew. According to Kline, the band name was inspired by,a line from the TV series Saved by the Bell and the general transience of opportunities.

In 2002, without even having a release out, Hellogoodbye began playing local concerts in front of crowds of hundreds. For live shows, vocalist/guitarist Kline and keyboardist Kurvink were accompanied on drums by either Parker Case, who would later form the now defunct JamisonParker, or Aaron Flora. Flora and bassist Marcus Cole soon joined them permanently, completing the band’s line-up. [1]
