More on Hero Jr.
Hero Jr. continues to combine the tradition of Midwestern hard hitting rock music with a twist of 70s British sound, and have been described as comfortably familiar yet completely unique. Hero Jr. is in it for the long haul. "...we all know that a rock band that doesn't have a good 3-5 years of dues paying doesn't have much chance of being around for a while. It's all about the music and that speaks entirely for itself."
A good chunk of Hero Jr.’s hours in the tour van are spent listening to comedy and podcasts. Bill Burr, Marc Maron, Louis CK, Jim Florentine, Joey Coco Diaz, Joe Rogan, and George Carlin are a few favorites. The band members are fascinated and inspired by the similarities between comedy and rock music. The comics’ stories of hardcore rejection, growing ‘thick skin’, and sticking to and fighting for their beliefs while moving up the food chain resonate deeply within the band.
