“The Hails take the blueprint and run with it, with the keyboard line humming along and each hook landing with the utmost conviction.”

“It’s a fun ride, simultaneously feeling like a new direction for the group and an obvious next step for the Miami boys.”

Today, The Hails release the next single off their upcoming debut record, “Heaven” featuring Kwin. Tactfully intertwining the soaring delicacy of front man Robbie Kingsley’s vocals and the fervent richness of guitarist Franco Solari’s, the song sees the band locked into perfect step with each other. Celestially multiplying in sonic elements, “Heaven” is almost waltz-like as the Florida five-piece demonstrates the fluidity of the grooves they are known for creating – Stream.

Solari shared, “’Heaven’ emerged as our first in-person collaboration after months of remote songwriting, fostering a melodic exchange between myself and Robbie. As the penultimate single from our debut album, it incites introspection about one’s lasting influence, even in absence. The poignant question, ‘If I was in heaven… would you fall in love again?’ persists, underpinned by a steady drumbeat symbolizing life’s constant progression. A climactic flurry of strings offers a glimmer of hope for an eternal reunion.”

The band today also announces their first ever headline tour. Throughout the month of September, The Hails will hit key East Coast and Midwest markets including D.C., New York, Chicago, Nashville, their home state of Florida, and many others, with support from Cannibal Kids and Shallow Alcove.

ABOUT THE HAILS

Following a string of encounters too strange to be coincidence, Robbie Kingsley, Franco Solari, Dylan McCue, Andre Escobar and Zach Levy came together to form The Hails. Despite first playing in an insular Miami high school music scene, the band officially formed at the University of Florida in Gainesville, turning the tattered carpeting and beer bottle lined shelves of their shitty college house into a distinct, refined sound that is now synonymous with their name.

After graduation, the group made the pilgrimage back to their home of Miami, the city that directly influenced the sound of their early shimmering singles “Younger” and “Stay,” debut EP He Seems Upset (2020), and the subsequent Alive in Strange Ways (2021). Recent highlights of the road include holding court at festivals including III Points, WonderStruck, Okeechobee and Playground, interspersed between sold-out shows across the state of Florida. The first half of 2022 also saw The Hails join WILLIS for West and East Coast dates.

Firing the starting pistol of their next chapter, The Hails have begun rolling out the singles from their upcoming debut album. The band’s new era earned them praise from Billboard, Consequence, EARMILK and many others, as well as editorial support on Spotify’s All New Indie, Fresh Finds and Fresh Finds Indie playlists. Having just wrapped up tour runs with The Happy Fits, The Beaches and the moss, The Hails are now gearing up for their headline tour this Fall.
