New single from Hey Champ

Hey Champ are the third greatest thing to come out of Rockford, Illinois. They are actually also three guys in the band. However, "Neverest" isn't the third single, but only the second one coming from their full-length debut album "Stars" set to be released July 13 on Townie Records.

My colleague Arnie speaks about Hey Champ as Rockford's Cut Copy and put them on his Best of 2009 list with their remix of French Horn Rebellion vs Database. And it was during 2009 it really hit off for Hey Champ due to their super track "Cold Dust Girl". Now they are looking for a busy 2010 where they are booked on several big festivals worldwide. 2010 will be the year of Hey Champ!

Listen to "Neverest" and "Cold Dust Girl" and pick them up for free from their website!

If you wonder what the other two great things to come out of Rockford are? I can tell you it's the rock legends Cheap Trick, and (allegedly) the older brother from the TV hit "Blossom."
