Although Pop Rock band Hello Fiasco‘s debut album FIND THE SHORELINE was released to Spotify back in May – where it has since amassed in excess of 1,250,000 streams and been added to over 2,500 playlists in only a couple of months – the actual release date is set for August 4.
The lyrically thought-provoking and emotionally charged 12-song album was co-produced by lead singer and rhythm guitarist Eric LaBossiere, along with award-winning producer John Paul Peters of Private Ear Recording. JP Peters has previously worked with Propagandhi, Arkells, Comeback Kid, Cancer Bats and Royal Canoe to name a few.
Notably, the album was mastered by American Grammy-winning engineer Randy Merrill of Sterling Sound (Imagine Dragons, Cage The Elephant, Muse, Maroon 5, Paul McCartney, Harry Styles, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Adele and Lady Gaga).
So, who is Hello Fiasco? In the years leading up to 2021, former members of The Mailman’s Children joined forces with other Canadian artists to record 23 original songs.
At the top of 2021, the new Pop Rock band emerged publicly as Hello Fiasco. Although Hello Fiasco is principally Canadian, the band is considered “North American” because their frontman Eric LaBossiere (born Canadian) lives in Helena, Montana, USA. The rest of the band, including Joel Couture (bass), Joel Perreault (lead guitars/backing vocals), Ivan Burke (drums/backing vocals), and Guy Abraham (keys/Ableton/backing vocals), all live in the Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA region.
Hello Fiasco has been compared to Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand & David Bowie, though listeners have also said that HF definitely has a sound and strength of their own. This only makes sense since the band prides itself on coming from the side of Pop Rock where the quality of lyrics and music still stand for something.
Our suggestion is to check out the album’s lead-off single “Hold Me Close” if you want to hear the goods. The track is already sitting at 300K streams on Spotify, and the band’s official video for the track recently hit 100K views on YouTube.
