hgmainWhen Forrest Kline started what would go on to become Hellogoodbye, his main goal was entertaining his friends.  With the help of Jesse Kurvink who went to school with Kline the two created several pop inspired synthesized recordings that soon took on a life of their own.  Before they knew it, they were signing to Drive-Thru Records who helped them release their first full length album “Zombies! Aliens! Vampires! Dinosaurs!” in 2006.

Since then, the band (Forrest Kline on vocals, guitar, Jesse Kurvink on keyboards and backing vocals, Marcus Cole on bass and Chris Profeta and drums) has been touring endlessly bringing their brand of fun to their people.  They are currently out on the MySpace music tour.  Frontman and band founder Forrest Kline took some time before one of their recent shows to talk to TWRY staffer Ellen about the band, Halloween, and life on the road.

okgomainArmed with merely ten dollars and a dance routine best described as happenstance, OK Go (Damian Kulash on vocals and guitar, Tim Nordwind on bass, Dan Konopka on drums, and Andy Ross on guitar and keyboards) burst on to the musical stage with a stylish bang. Making their initial mark on the scene with their self-titled debut in 2002, OK Go has been drawing in fans en masse with their own unique approach to music with infectious dance grooves and unaffected lyrics. With their follow up album Oh No released in 2005, the band is currently on the road with their high-energy live show and delightfully conspicuous stage clothes.

We recently sat down with lead singer Damian Kulash, Jr. before a show with She Wants Revenge and The Lashes in Clifton Park, New York. If it weren’t for a couple of brief yawns and hair tousles, you would never know this outspoken front-man was recovering from a case of bad salad, suffering from a lack of sleep, and in the midst of preparing to direct OK Go’s next video.
