It has been amazing year for Hey! Hello! Here is a recap of 12 moments that helped make our year so memorable.
12. Duff McKagan and Punk Wars
In January 2013, some 6 months before the official release of our debut album, Duff McKagan championed the track ‘How I Survived The Punk Wars” on his Seattle Weekly blog. The Guns ‘n’ Roses legend wrote “Perhaps the best and most real punk rock song in a long, long time… “How I Survived The Punk Wars” off of the Hey! Hello! record actually stunned me.”
Feral Days is up for song of the year on the Classic Rock poll.
