One Way Ticket
After the release of the amazing Slow Moion EP earlier this year, Heffron Drive fans have been patiently waiting for more new music. Prayers were answered on August 4th with the new single and music video “One Way Ticket.”
Once again, Kendall and Dustin has switched up their sound, going with a nostalgic vibe of Fleetwood Mac and Third Eye Blind. Kendall even pulled out some moves from Taking Back Sunday’s front man Adam Lazzara in the music video.
The “One Way Ticket” music video was shot, directed, and edited by Wesley Quinn, who is no stranger to the HD family. He has worked on many of their previous music videos in many different capacities and he told TUTV exclusively that “we are now working on several others coming up.”
We asked Wes how the concept of this video came about. He said, “The concept was initially more complex, […] we decided to make the white background theme the whole video and put a lot of work into the edit.” A lot of the video was improvised. “Our initial planned changed so we ran with it and it turned out awesome.”
This is definitely not the last we will hear from Heffron Drive this year. Kendall told Digital Journal “Dustin and I are working on new music. We are trying to put out a full-length album before the end of October, but if we can’t, we will put out an EP at the very least, and we will release at least a couple of more singles.”
Check out this playlist of songs that inspire Kendall and Dustin.
On April 20th 2017 Kendall joined Sofia Reyes on stage for her song “Conmigo – Rest Of Your Life” and they also did a cover of the Taylor Swift and Zayn Malik song “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever” in Buenos Aires, Argentina at the Teatro Grand Arena as part of her Louder tour.
“It gives me great happiness to be able to sing again with Kendall in Argentina.” Sofia said in an interview with TKM promoting the show.
While Kendall was there, he also took time to meet with fans which he said “was unbelievable that had been waiting at the hotel for him and felt honored” and some interviews including Coke for you Argentina and Billboard Argentina. He told Cameila Hadad that the South American fans are “very passionate. Everyone’s so excited always having a good time.”
Kendall will be heading to Argentina again later this year with Dustin as part of a Latin American tour.
