HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING ABOUT THE DELTA ROUTINE:

“Milwaukee’s Delta Routine can rock the blues and deliver grade-A hooks just as well as any of its contemporaries. It’s no wonder they’ve been receiving plenty of accolades in their hometown” – MAGNET MAGAZINE
 
“On its third full-length album, Cigarettes & Caffeine Nightmares, Milwaukee’s The Delta Routine once again assume the tired-and-true rock stance by mining the classic, guitar-driven treasures of the past. Singer-songwriter Nick Amadeus injects a bluesy swagger into the proceedings, while his band does its best to summon up the hard-living, pre-gentrified ghosts of a mid-’70s CBGB. The good news is that they pull it off—the album is a big step up from 2011’s More About You.” – Matt Wild / THE ONION’S A.V. CLUB

“The Delta Routine ups the ante on their new full-length Cigarettes & Caffeine Nightmares, an album that finds the band hitting their stride like never before.” – Joshua Miller / SHEPHERD EXPRESS
 
“I won’t waste your time now,” Delta Routine frontman Nick Amadeus sings with his Liam Gallagher-esque vocals on the opening track. He’s true to his word. At 32 minutes, the album is mercifully low on fat but thrills all the same with warped organ and guitar reverb snarls on “Switchblade.” Likewise, “Around Your Neck” does its bluesy, White Stripes-like, swagger-soaked thing in less than two minutes’ time.”  – Piet Levy / JOURNAL SENTINEL
 
“Harsh, cathartic boogie marinated in loose, blues-rock grooves and swamp-water bop.” – John Noyd / MAXIMUM INK
 
“The Delta Routine’s new single “Switchblade,” from their new album Cigarettes and Caffeine Nightmares sounds like early Oasis, but with a definite Midwest vibe.” – 88NINE RADIO MILWAUKEE
 
“Down-and-dirty barroom blues/rock.” – WHEN YOU MOTOR AWAY

“The Delta Routine blend catchy guitar pop with swaggering blues-rooted rock-and-roll that nods at The Black Crowes, The Who and The Rolling Stones.” – Bobby Tanzilo / ON MILWAUKEE

“If you love a mixture of ’60s rock ‘n’ roll, angsty punk and modern day indie, then The Delta Routine’s Cigarettes & Caffeine Nightmares is definitely an album you’ll love.” – SHOW ME SOMETHING DIFFERENT: UK
 
“Think late ‘60s, ‘70s rock ‘n’ roll (Bolan and Stones)… Cigarettes & Caffeine Nightmares is worth adding to your collection” – MUSIC EYEZ: UK
 
“The Delta Routine continue to maintain their fun, distinctive sound while supplying us with fresh new hits to dance to on their third full-length record, Cigarettes and Caffeine Nightmares. – LOCAL PLAYLIST
 
2011 Band of the Year – 88NINE RADIO MILWAUKEE

2011 Alternative Artist of the Year – WAMI AWARDS (WISCONSIN AREA MUSIC INDUSTRY)

HERE’S WHAT PEOPLE HAVE BEEN SAYING ABOUT HERO JR.:

 

“Rock at its finest.” – METROMIX INDIANAPOLIS

 

“Each song on Hero Jr.’s new album Backup Plan is a powerhouse of hook-laden melodic rock. It’s the magical blend of ’70s groove, ’80s brashness, ’90s hooks, and millennial pop. In short, it’s unforgettable.” – ADOBE AND TEARDROPS

 

“Hero Jr.’s full-length debut Backup Plan is a refreshing change of sound, mixing up a bit of classic and ’90s rock and expanding on the raw power of groups like Mother Love Bone in their heyday.” – INSOMNIA RADIO

 

“To say that Hero Jr.’s new single ‘Naked’ is three minutes of guitar heaven is a bit of an understatement, as the riffs really carry the track. Backed up by a constant heartbeat courtesy of drummer Matthew Haughey behind Evan Haughey’s Caleb Followill-esque vocals, it’s an incredibly addictive song.”  – SHOW ME SOMETHING DIFFERENT: UK

 

“Hero Jr. have a sound that’s unmistakably U.S. rock. You get the feeling they could have released their single “Ann Boleyn” any time from the last forty years and it’d stand a chance at college radio airplay and southern cook-outs, yet it manages to have just enough freshness to get played here in the U.K.” – SUPAJAM/UK

 

“The music Hero Jr. brings on Backup Plan is worth some serious exploration. Lead singer Evan Haughey is gifted with magnificent pipes, his vocals soaring over a guitar-heavy alternative groove which reminds instantly of a cross between nineties-era Tonic and pretty much anything by the Black Crowes or Cracker.” – HEAR HEAR MUSIC

 

[5 out of 5] “Hero Jr.’s high energy, hook driven rock-and-roll comes through in waves with their debut studio album, Backup Plan.” – THE RIPPLE EFFECT

 

“Best Of The Month: December 2012. Hero Jr.’s “Ann Boleyn.”  – MAD MACKEREL/UK

“Hero Jr.’s album is a polished survey of modern rock that isn’t too quirky or too brutish to turn off mainstream listeners. Lead singer, Evan Haughey, sounds like Kings of Leon front man Caleb Followill when he’s worked up and going for broke. Hero Jr. has everything in its right place. Haughey’s guitar licks, which range from gritty to artfully restrained, sound great, and his voice is radio-ready.” – David Lindquist / INDIANAPOLIS STAR

“Hero Jr. plays a solid post 90’s rock with a radio ready sound. They rock it out with a top 40 consciousness. In a music scene full of art rockers, I’m glad to see a band that’s not afraid to be likeable.” – Wayne Bertsch / NUVO WEEKLY

“Hero Jr. seemed to stumble on a formula for success right out of the gate: write a strong, catchy record, promote like hell and play the biggest shows you can get your hands on.” – Dan Fahrner / MUSICAL FAMILY TREE

“Straight-up, no gimmicks rock n’ roll.” – INDY CONCERTS
