On the first day of the Vans Warped Tour, Hey Monday meant business and pulled no punches, kicking off with their hit, "How You Love Me Now." Playing all dates on this gruelling 43-city tour, this five-piece band showed no signs they were going to pace themselves for the long haul. Instead they came in full throttle whipping the crowd into a frenzy in this triple-digit So Cal heat wave. In the short amount of time as a band Hey Monday has sold nearly 500,000 songs, graced the cover of several magazines in the United States and overseas, and have received over 28 million plays on MySpace.

Hailing from West Palm Beach (Florida), Hey Monday puts new meaning to the phrase "You can sleep when you're dead." Less than two years since their release of their debut album, "Hold on Tight," Hey Monday, fronted by Cassadee Pope has been on the road non-stop for over a year with tour of duties on Bamboozle, The AP Tour, Hot Topic Acousitc Tour, Glamour Kills Tour, Let's Make a Mess Tour and their very own UK Headling Tour.

In the midst of all this touring, they've managed to write more songs. Now, news comes that on August 17th , Hey Monday will launch their highly anticipated sophomore effort, "Beneath It All," referencing Pope's brutally honest lyrics. They've already released their first single off that album, 'Wish You Were Here,' and will soon release another as soon as they reach 200,000 Facebook friends (currently, they're at 181,468). So recommend to your friends and friends of friends.
