Breathe Carolina Hello Fascination on Limited Edition Clear LP
Starting out in a bedroom in the suburbs of the Mile High City, David Schmitt and Kyle Even began playing music as a means of escape. As one of the first bands to start making waves via social networks, they experienced first-hand what it felt like to seemingly gain an overnight following. What began as something they did for fun, quickly struck a resonance with people they had never met.
And after they hit the road, to discover the thousands of "friends" they gained online were real fans, singing along to the tracks they wrote in the confines of their homes, was a humbling experience. “It was the best adventure I'd ever had!” notes singer/screamer Kyle Even. “To find people who knew who we were so far away from home was a crazy experience! We were so happy that people knew our songs and could relate to us.”
Following a highly-anticipated SXSW showcase, labels clamored to sign this explosive young band that saw no limits on their musical possibilities. Their 2008 Rise Records debut It's Classy, Not Classic set the tone for the next year of hard touring, before they truly came into their own on their 2009 sophomore full-length Hello Fascination. A step to a brave next level, the album entered the Billboard Top 200 at #43, and went on to sell over 60,000 copies in the U.S. alone, no mean feat for a band in a scene offering only a chosen few a glimpse of mainstream success.
Their juxtaposition of hardcore guts and pop glory found a happy niche between both rock and pop fans, the album's title track landing placements on the promos for NBC's Jay Leno Show, 30 Rock and Monday Night Football, MTV's The Hills and The City. The mainstream was starting to listen. Fearless Records now presents Breathe Carolina's breakthrough sophomore LP, Hello Fascination, on limited edition clear vinyl of only 1,000 copies.
