Gotee Records band House of Heroes SUBURBA produced by Mark Lee Townsend (Relient K, Deas Vail) and mixed by J.R. McNeely (The Almost, Paramore) is out now, after a stellar two weeks after street date the band is excited to hit the road on the Monster Monster Tour with The Almost, Chasen and Between the Trees, dates kicks off on September 14.


“It’s clear that with Suburba, House of Heroes could easily take on arenas and stadiums and have their songs shouted back to them, it’s time for us to let go of our little secrets and let them become successful.”
– Alter The Press


This week House Of Heroes kicks off the Bruegger’s Bagels Music Showcase promotion on Facebook (www.facebook.com/Brueggers <http://www.facebook.com/Brueggers> ) with a free download of the track “Elevator”. To access the download fans must “Like” Bruegger’s. Also the first 20 fans who click the “get a code” button will get a coupon for 3 free bagels.

Endlessly poppy and dripping with honest, candid emotion, Suburba takes us back to a time when rock music was more innocent and held more meaning.

“A trend we see around the website is when a band breaks up or goes on hiatus and everyone spends the next few years talking about how they wish they were back / still making music …things like that. Usually these are good bands with a fanbase that realizes how good they are after it’s too late. Don’t let this be House of Heroes. Support a band that is actually making inspired/creative pop-rock.

-Jason Tate, CEO/Founder of AbsolutePunk.net

HM Magazine Turns 35

In 1985, Doug Van Pelt photocopied a letter-sized sheets of paper, bound them together, and handed them out in person on the campus of the University of Texas at Austin.

Here: A quick look back at the magazine's 35-year history with Van Pelt and new owner, David Stagg.
