House of Heroes ended 2010 in style as one ‘AP Recommends’ in the December issue of Alternative Press and now the band glides into the new year and hits the road with Toby Mac and Brandon Heath on Winter Wonderslam 2011 with dates kicking off on January 14 in Tulsa, OK.

The band’s latest release SUBURBA was deemed by HM as aRadiant sparkle and layers on chain-gang vocals and multiple harmonies”, while Alternative Press said “Suburba shows off what the masses have been missing: catchy pop songs with well-written lyrics. Suburba’s songs remain full of power while retaining the delicate touch of songwriting craftsmanship“ and Absolute Punk wrote Tim Skipper has one of the best voices I’ve heard in a long, long time“, produced by Mark Lee Townsend (Relient K, Deas Vail) and mixed by J.R. McNeely (Versa Emerge, He Is We) SURBUBA is out now.
