Hey Thanks!
Hey Thanks!
Hey Thanks! is a pop punk band from the heart of Cajun country: Lafayette, Louisiana. Growing up in the boot state means being constantly bombarded with swamp pop and zydeco music. This caused the boys of Hey Thanks! to flock to alternative music at an early age, such as Green Day, Blink 182, Sum 41 and New Found Glory just to name a few. Trevor (drums), Joe (rhythm guitar), Jaron (lead guitar), and Alex (bass) were all best friends throughout high school. Even though they were all in different bands, they spent weekends together writing ironic songs and playing Yu-Gi-Oh (yes the card game…don’t laugh). The four boys left their small town of Lockport, Louisiana and moved to Lafayette to attend college at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. In September of 2015, they met up with Dylan (vocals) who had just recently left his former band. Not only did they guys love Dylan’s vocal style from the instant they heard it, they also loved how perfectly his personality gelled with all of them.
The boys soon had songs flowing out of them naturally and, before they knew it, had a full album written. They wrote songs that saluted the greats of pop punk that they all grew up idolizing, but also incorporate modern elements of the genre from bands like State Champs and The Story So Far. Wanting to start off the new year strong, Hey Thanks! put out their self-released first full length album “One Step Forward, Two Steps Back” on January 29th, 2016. According to Sound, Phrase & Fury, the album, “boasts a heavy dose of addicting catchy tunes reminiscent of early Handguns and The Wonder Years.” To support the album the band started playing live shows, which have been described as “a tightly-clenched fist of punchy pop-punk” by The Vermillion newspaper. After a busy 6 months, the band won the Ernie Ball Play Warped Tour contest and were invited to open up the main stage of the Vans Warped Tour when it passed through New Orleans in July of 2016. Hey Thanks! is currently spending some quality time in the pop punk kitchen cooking up a new record to be released in 2017.
