Hype first started as a creation of Stephens mind. Wanting to make an album he went to friend Chris to help with his ideas and make them into reality. Soon later they asked Chloe and JoJo to join and HYPE was made.
They bring a breath of fresh air to the music industry combining many genres to make their own mash of pop punk/rock, alternative, indie rock and rock. Influenced from bands such as The Clash, Blink 182, The Who, and The Replacements. They bring edginess to the stage yet make their instruments sing with beautiful melodies and riffs. From songs like In The City to Off Base to Could Be Anything the band brings a diversity of an 'all killer no filler' band.
The combination of Perry and Radabaugh writing riffs and lyrics so catchy and, Venturas dumming skills as if he was born playing drums and Bennies simplistic bass style make for a perfect combination.
Tommy: "Yeah right dude, she's all hype."
