Gotee Records band House Of Heroes is set to release their latest effort, SUBURBA on August 3, produced by Mark Lee Townsend (Relient K, Deas Vail) and mixed by J.R. McNeely(The Almost, Paramore).  In anticipation of SUBURBA, Gotee Records and House of Heroes have come up with a “tweet and download” campaign for fans that kicks off on June 29.  Go to <>  where you will be able to post a tweet about HOH in exchange for a free download of the track “Independence Day For A Petty Thief”, just in time for the July 4th holiday.

“AJ and I went to the 4th of July fireworks in the ritzy part of town 2 years agostates lead singer Tim Skipper.We had parked in a neighborhood nearby and had to walk a bit.  All of the houses were deserted and the garage doors were open and it was just very bizarre.  AJ looked at us and said, “This would be heaven for some punk kids looking to rob these people.”  A week and a few sweet riffs later, we had a song about that very thing.  We’re always trying to think of interesting subject matter to write about, and I think this song really stands out.  Plus, it’s about as balls out rock n’ roll as anything we’ve ever done!  We’ve created a nice little collection of fans through <>  and we’re just dying to get some music from ‘Suburba’ out to them, so giving away a song called ‘Independence Day For a Petty Thief ‘a week before July 4th, just fits so well”

SUBURBA is an album like nothing else you will hear today.  And for that fact alone, it is a victory of epic proportions.  Endlessly poppy, galactically ambitious, and dripping with honest, candid emotion, this is what a rock record is supposed to sound like.  This is what a rock record is supposed to feel like.

Expect the band to tour nonstop through out 2010.

Heaven's Metal: An Oral History of the Genesis of Christian Metal

Heaven's Metal

When rock emerged from blues and 'heavy metal' began to surface, faith-based metal acts also rose to start their own journeys. Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
