The band released their second single “55 Regrets” in October 2008. “55 Regrets” received national radio play and the video was also picked up by Much Music and was immediately put on heavy rotation.
Hello Operator then released their third single “Take Me Away” near the end of March 2009, which spent 6 weeks in the Much On Demand top 10 and went on to hit #1 on the countdown.
