Standard vinyl and merch pre-orders are available now, with an extra extremely limited (to 10!) Square 7” album lathe cut set. Each track from the record is presented on its own clear 7” with separate artwork for the track – with a signed note from Forrest included and individual limited number.

Commenting on the signing, Alcopop! Records label boss Jack Clothier said: “To complement a red hot summer, you need some even more sizzling bangers, so it is with MUCH delight that we can announce that we’ll be working with Hellogoodbye to put out the new album S’Only Natural.
“Forrest is a wonderful human being who’s musical output we’ve been following for YEARS – and this album is (to put it simply) just marvellous. We’ve also had the opportunity to work with him on a super special version of the LP, which comes via 10 x square 7″s, all with track artwork. It’s very limited and proper awesome. Lovely stuff.”
The news comes alongside a recently SOLD OUT one-off intimate solo performance in the UK at The Islington in London on 10th August 2018, with further live dates TBA.
It’s been five years since Forrest Kline, mastermind behind the eternally shapeshifting indie-pop band Hellogoodbye, released any new music. It takes time to dive as deep as the new album S’Only Natural does; here, Forrest encourages a life lived loudly over the course of 12 undeniable anthems of individuality.
There are just as many ballads as there are all-out dance parties, but they’ve all got this one message in common––be yourself unapologetically and love with everything you’ve got.
If there’s one song that defines what Hellogoodbye’s new album S’Only Naturalis all about, look no further than its title track and accompanying video. Directed by fashion photographer Andrew Lee, the colourful video is the song’s perfect match, an ode to celebrating life outside of the expectations of others.
Commenting on the new single, Kline describes it as: “A love letter to downtown at dusk and the potency of diversity it offers. When the sun sets on a busy city block, deep dim lights give way to big bright personalities. You need not hide in the city at night. You can be free in the city at night.”
Hellogoodbye will be heading out on a headline US tour kicking off on the 16th October in Boston. All tickets are on sale now at: www.sonlynatural.com
