Helios was produced by Stuart Price and Ryan Tedder. “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.” Said singer Issac Slade.
Helios follows the band’s 2012 release Scars & Stories which garnered widespread praise—USA Today called the music “more muscular and buoyant,” while Rolling Stone noted “they’re still pumping.” The Fray’s 2005 debut, featuring the hit single “How to Save a Life,” went double-platinum and the band earned a 2010 Grammy nomination for their self-titled release. They have made numerous television appearances including “Late Show with David Letterman,” “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon,” “The Today Show,” “Good Morning America,” “Jimmy Kimmel Live!” and many more.
The Fray is Issac Slade (vocals, guitar) Joe King (guitar, vocals), Dave Welsh (guitar), and Ben Wysocki (drums). The Denver-based foursome formed in 2002 after high school friends Slade and King bumped into each other at a local guitar shop.The band achieved national success with their first single, “Over My Head (Cable Car),” which became a top ten hit in the U.S., and the release of their second single, “How to Save a Life,” brought them worldwide fame.
