HERO JR. UNVEIL NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR THEIR SONG “ANN BOLYEN”

By on December 21, 2012

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

 

 “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

Editor’s Pick Best of Indy – NUVO WEEKLY

“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

“Rock at its finest.” – METROMIX INDIANAPOLIS

“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

“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.” – 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.” –  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.” – MUSICAL FAMILY TREE

 

Hero Jr.’s Backup Plan is out now through Desa Records in CD and Digital formats.
