The Fray's "Helios" Tour with Special Guests Barcelona and Oh Honey Come to Hard Rock Live on Tuesday, July 22

Hollywood, Fla. (April 4, 2014) – In celebration of the their fourth album, Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum selling band The Fray will bring their Helios tour to Hard Rock Live at Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino on Tuesday, July 22, 2014 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets go on sale Friday, April 11 at 10 a.m. Special guests Barcelona and Oh Honey will support.
Helios was released in January 2014 to widespread critical acclaim, featuring its lead single "Love Don't Die," produced by Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic). The latest track off the new record "Break Your Plans" is streaming now at VEVO: http://bit.ly/1pGh8F1. Of the track, Isaac Slade (vocals, piano) notes, "We wanted to capture the moment right before a couple parts ways, where everything is pointing to the split, and one of them suddenly gets this fire-almost out of nowhere. Maybe it's the feeling of the other just starting to leave, maybe it's a moment-in-time but suddenly there's fight left, and they go for it."
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 Fray is one of the most licensed bands of 2006, with their music being featured on hit television shows Scrubs, Grey's Anatomy, What About Brian, NCIS, One Tree Hill, and Bones as well as in HBO's summer promos.
The group's second self-titled album, released in 2009, debuted at number-one on the Billboard Charts and was certified gold in the United States, Australia and Canada. It was also nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album in 2010.
The Fray is composed of Slade, 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.
