Fans of the “Guys My Age” girl-band Hey Violet are celebrating the release of the group’s brand new lyric video for their newest single ‘Queen Of The Night’.

Foreshadowing the release of the track’s official music video, which is set to drop in the coming weeks, the lyric video definitely adds a little pop to the catchy record, which is the third of four new tracks that the band is set to release throughout the summer. ‘Queen Of The Night’ joined ‘Better By Myself’ and ‘Close My Eyes’, which were released in the months before.

Speaking on the track, Hey Violet shared that “this song is so special to us… the different stories and perspectives that have emerged from it… the feeling of nostalgia and new beginnings. this song hit us in a different way. since the very beginning, we’ve believed that being honest is the most important lesson you can learn. life is a process and nothing can truly be perfected in a day. but maybe today, we’ll start being a little more honest with ourselves. do whatever it takes to be the best version of yourself because there is no love like the love you feel when you finally realize the wonder you’re capable of. when you look in the mirror and finally tell yourself that you are better today than you were yesterday. to all of our queens n kings of the night. we love you.”

Hey Violet Returns with New Single “Close My Eyes”

Hey Violet is back! After enjoying Top 40 success with their emerging single ‘Guys My Age’, from their 2017 debut album, Hey Violet has released their brand new single ‘Close My Eyes’.

Discussing the new single, lead singer Rena Lovelis describes the song as:

…the idea of still wanting to be with an ex who has already moved on. There’s definitely a level of denial that goes into being in that sort of headspace because you’re basically rejecting the present reality and not allowing yourself to move forward. The song sounds very calm and chill but in the lyrical content there’s an air of tension because of that refusal to accept things as they are.

To supplement their new track, Hey Violet will also hit the road in the next few weeks, with stops in New York, San Francisco, Washington DC and Los Angeles.

Photos: Hey Violet Performs for a Sold-Out Crowd at Chicago’s Sub-T

Moments ago, Los Angeles pop-punk band Hey Violet performed for a sold-out crowd at Chicago’s Subterranean. Currently on their first headlining tour in North America, after touring the country last summer with 5 Seconds of Summer, the emerging artists have been enjoying the success of their breakout single ‘Guys My Age’, while taking their music on the road before Ren Lovelis and company bless fans with their debut release.

Getting things started for the night was singer Jessarae, performing for a Windy City audience for the first time in his young career. The LA native opened with his track ‘Stand In The Rain’, and he was instantly met with screams throughout the crowd, from his new fans who quickly lusted after his voice, bleach-blonde hair and his Ed Sheeran-esk talents on the loop pedal. Jessarae delivered a half-hour set, which includes his songs ‘No Warning’, his new track ‘Don’t Honey Me’ and a cover of Drake’s ‘One Dance’. Jessarae certainly made friends with his audience, taking time to greet the crowd, give backstory to his songs and he even stopped his performance to sing Happy Birthday to two fans celebrating their 16th and 20th birthdays. Needless to say tonight will likely not be Jessarae’s last performance in Chicago.

Soon after Jessarae stepped off stage, the crowd began to cheer as Hey Violet descended from the Subterranean’s notorious spiral staircase. As Rena, Miranda, Casey, Nia and Iain took their positions, fans raised their hands to the sky, making a sea of sharpie X’s throughout the all ages crowd. Hey Violet opened with their 2016 track ‘Brand New Moves’, and although the SubT is certainly not Chicago’s largest venue, Hey Violet sold-out the intimate club with their biggest fans, who could recite the lyrics throughout the band’s entire set.

Following up with performances of ‘Pure’, a brand new track ‘Consequence’ and ‘I’m Holy’, Ren took time to give a special introduction to the band’s track ‘Odd (O.D.D.)’. Lovelis told fans that the track is one of the band’s most important songs and that everyone should learn to embrace their differences, a message that ‘Odd’ captures.  Throughout the night Hey Violet performed a collection of their songs, which are all relatively new, since the band is still on the verge of their debut album, which has yet to be announced.

Hey Violet also paid homage to Chicago by taking notice of its great food. While previously mentioning that she had never had a bad time in Chicago, Lovelis corrected herself by saying she once has a bad time in Chicago because she ate so much great food that she “food coma-ed out”, which the rest of the band added really isn’t a bad time at all. Throughout the night Lovelis was more than personable while interacting with her audience.

The highlight of the night though came towards the end of Hey Violet’s set. After a cover performance of Katy Perry’s new single ‘Chained To The Rhythm”, Hey Violet performed their huge breakout single, ‘Guys My Age’, a track which still is getting a ton of play on the radio with no signs of slowing down. Soon followed by a performance of a fan favorite, ‘fuqboi’, Hey Violet closed the show on a high note and left the crowd wanting more in the best way possible. Although the band’s roughly 45-minute set made the night go by quick, no one left the Sub-T without their money’s worth, and when Hey Violet returns with a new album or EP to perform, you can surely expect tonight’s crowd to return as well.

Check out our photos from tonight’s performance below, and be sure to catch one of the remaining dates on Hey Violet’s North American tour here.
