Double platinum band The Fray bring their critically acclaimed fourth album to The Foundry at SLS Las Vegas on Saturday, October 22.
The Fray is Slade, Joe King (guitar, vocals), Dave Welsh (guitar), and Ben Wysocki (drums). The Denver-based group formed in 2002 after high school friends Slade and King bumped into each other at a local guitar shop. The Fray achieved national success with their 2005 debut, featuring the hit singles “Over My Head (Cable Car)” and “How to Save a Life,” which went double platinum. The band also earned a 2010 Grammy nomination for their self-titled release.
“Helios,” the fourth album from critically acclaimed foursome The Fray, was released February 25, 2014, on Epic Records. Of the new music, produced by Stuart Price (The Killers, Madonna, Keane), Isaac Slade (piano, vocals) notes, “Working with Stuart was the best of both worlds. We brought our organic instruments, and he brought his arsenal of electronic antiques. This record is all about running to the front lines of what we’ve done and pushing our borders even farther. Electronic instruments, drum samples, enormous backing vocals, opening up our writing to folks outside our camp.”
The band premiered the lead single “Love Don’t Die,” produced by Ryan Tedder (Adele, One Republic), on the “Today Show.” A flurry of TV performances followed the release as the band performed on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno,” rang in the New Year as part the global TV celebration “Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rockin’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest 2014,” and recently performed on the outdoor stage at “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and “The Late Show with David Letterman.”
