Hello Fiasco is a Canadian-American Pop Rock band that emerged publicly in 2021. The band's debut album "Find The Shoreline," which earned an unprecedented 1,250,000 streams and was placed on over 2,500 Spotify playlists before its official release on August 4 of 2022, is now available worldwide.

In the years leading up to 2021, former members of The Mailman's Children joined forces with other Canadian artists to record 23 original songs. At the top of 2021, the newly formed 5-piece band surfaced as Hello Fiasco.
Although Hello Fiasco™ is principally Canadian, the band is actually considered Canadian-American or “North American” because their frontman Eric LaBossiere (born Canadian) lives in Helena, Montana (USA). The rest of the band, including Joel Couture (bass), Joel Perreault (lead guitars/backing vocals), Ivan Burke (drums/backing vocals), and Guy Abraham (keys/Ableton/backing vocals), all live in the Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada region.
The band's debut album was co-produced by frontman Eric LaBossiere and award-winning Canadian producer John Paul Peters (Propagandhi, Arkells, Comeback Kid, Faouzia, Royal Canoe, Cancer Bats, The Bros. Landreth and Begonia). *Peters recently won both Audio Engineering and Producer of the Year awards at the Western Canadian Music Awards. Notably, the album was mastered by American Grammy-winning engineer Randy Merrill of Sterling Sound (Imagine Dragons, Cage The Elephant, Muse, Maroon 5, Paul McCartney, Ariana Grande, Harry Styles, Justin Bieber, Katy Perry, Adele and Lady Gaga).
Hello Fiasco has been compared to Panic! At The Disco, Fall Out Boy, The Killers, Franz Ferdinand and David Bowie, though listeners have also said that HF definitely has a sound and strength of their own. This only makes sense since the band prides itself on coming from the side of Pop Rock where the quality of lyrics, music and originality all still stand for something.
