Hey Violet – USA Band


Hey Violet are the first band that 5SOS have signed to their own record label. They originate from LA and have been described as punk rockers. Until December 2014 they were known as Cherri Bomb. The group was formed in 2008 as Cherri Bomb while its members were still in middle school and originally consisted of Julia Pierce (lead vocals, guitar), Miranda Miller (guitar, vocals) Rena Lovelis (bass guitar, vocals) and Nia Lovelis (drums, vocals). Pierce departed the band in 2013, and was replaced by Casey Moreta (guitar, vocals), before changing their name to Hey Violet in 2015, and signed to Hi Or Hey Records. As Cherri Bomb, they were signed to Hollywood Records, and released their first and so far, only, studio album This Is the End of Control in 2012.

The cute thing is that they did a short acoustic sets outside Wembley SSE arena and other European venues and  USA/Canada venues as part of their tour with 5SOS during June/July 2015 where these photographs were taken  allowing fans to be photographed with them. Nice people and nice band, and the music, surprisingly good. still however waiting for them to appear on spotify. On the March 19, they released their new single “This Is Why”. Although an undoubtedly pretty band, they can play good music and clearly thats the view too of other bands and promoters. The band were opening acts for rock bands, including Bush, Camp Freddy, Filter, Foo Fighters, The Smashing Pumpkins, Staind and Steel Panther.
