The leaves aren’t the only thing changing this time of year for the band Hey Monday. The group wrapped a summer-long trek on Warped Tour, and then amicably parted ways with bassist Jersey Moriarty. The band’s latest effort, Beneath It All, made it to iTunes, but in a shortened EP form as opposed to a previously planned LP.
Still, the Florida-based pop rock band pushes forward, with the single “I Don’t Wanna Dance” and a tour that kicks off next month with fellow pop-rockers Cartel.

Oh, and a new, albeit temporary, bassist in Mike Gentile’s brother, Chris. Lead singer Cassadee Pope tells “The Ralphie Radio Show” that the search for a permanent replacement will kick in to full force after the tour.
“We’re going to probably keep looking around, it’s not a priority right now,” Pope said. “But, we’re going to keep our eyes open. We’ll probably hold auditions at some point but we’re probably going to keep it within’ the people that we know in the industry so it doesn’t get too out of hand.”
Don’t look for a Craigslist posting in the near future either – Pope joked that “nothing good” could come from a search on the online classifieds website.
Hey Monday begins its fall, headlining tour on October 20.
