Supporting Acts: Crobot Hillbilly Herald
From the backwoods of America to the streets of Los Angeles, the 4-piece rock band known as Hillbilly Herald is taking the US by storm. Packing in world-renown venues like the Viper Room, Roxy Theater, and the House of Blues, the band seems unstoppable. It all began in 2008 when the charismatic, "rough-around-the-edges" lead singer, Jimmy Herald , got together with guitar player, Mark The Cat Hill. The two sought out to bring rock n roll back to life, inspired by bands like AC/DC, KISS, Aerosmith, Lynyrd Skynyrd and Guns N' Roses. "Hillbilly Herald is BAD ASS." - SLASH on Twitter They joined forces with ZZ Top bearded bass player, Adam Wolf, and powerhouse drummer, Kevin Kapler, who brought the aggressive rhythm section the band was looking for. Together they went into the studio to record their self-titled debut album under the expert ears of Brian Carlstrom, engineer for bands like Alice In Chains, The Offspring and White Zombie. The end result is a slamming hard rock record that could soundtrack an action-flick super-star cruising in a convertible, getting pumped up to save the world. With unparalleled stage performances and an arena-style show that bleeds rock n roll, Hillbilly Herald is injecting life into the rock scene. So pump up your stereos and pop open a cold one. Rock is back. And its got a face...
