Hey Violet is an American rock band from Los Angeles, California, consisting of Rena Lovelis (lead vocals), Miranda Miller (rhythm guitar, keyboard, vocals), Nia Lovelis (drums, vocals), Casey Moreta (lead guitar, vocals), and Iain Shipp (bass).
Formed in 2008 as Cherri Bomb while its members were still in middle school, the band was originally an all-female hard rock group, consisting of Miller, the Lovelis sisters and lead singer Julia Pierce. In 2013, Pierce left the band and was later replaced by Moreta. In 2015, the group changed their name to Hey Violet and largely altered their sound. They later signed to Hi or Hey Records, founded by 5 Seconds of Summer, who they supported on the Rock Out With Your Socks Out and Sounds Live, Feels Live tours.
Shipp joined the band on September 2016.
