Hella Good Buy

February 9, 2012 by Matt Zimmerman

As Hellogoodbye begin work on their third full length, they decided to give everyone a chance to purchase their last (and best) album Would It Kill You by offering it as a pay-what-you-want sliding scale. You can purchase your digital or physical copy here.

“As we gear up to make our third record, we’re struck by how much we really just want everyone to have the chance to hear the music we’ve made. ‘would it kill you?’ is a really important piece of work to me. while i’d hate to devalue it, or contribute to a trend of devaluing music in general, i’d also hate for someone to miss out for fiscal reasons. consider it the easiest way to support what we do, if you like it, and the cheapest way to discover if it’ll mean something special to you.

- forrest & the hellogoodbye’s”
