A Hero En Route, from Evansville, IN and now based in Nashville, TN are five friends who decided to jam together, playing covers at first.
Influenced by Brand New, Kings of Leon, Radiohead, Led Zeppelin and Pearl Jam, among many others, their upbeat pop-rock is full of relatable, catchy melodies and flying-open chords. They craft simple songs, mixing slightly distorted and acoustic sounds with subtle, climatic arrangements. Their latest release, Old Atlas (summer 2011) offers a journey full of different moods and textures, definitely setting them aside from the average in terms of originality and consistency.
Since 2008, they've released 5 albums (4 EP's / 1 LP) and 1 live recording
