Hero For Today

Four teens from the O.C. deliver high-energy pop punk that epitomizes the Southern California lifestyle
You cut me so deep within that I don’t know where to begin.
lyrics from All You Wanted

Hero For Today is a high-energy Pop/Rock band from Orange County, California that epitomizes the Southern California lifestyle. They've written and recorded some incredibly catchy songs with inspirational lyrics that kids today really relate to - but what really sets this band apart from all others are the melodic, powerful, complex guitar harmonies and solos. Rocko, Sam, Eric and John, the four members of Hero For Today, continue to attract loyal new fans show after show. They are four talented, dedicated and very hard working teenagers with big dreams and an incredibly bright future - and they're fortunate to have the support of some the biggest names in the music business.
Both of Hero For Today's records have been produced by Bobby Alt (leader of the ground breaking drum/percussion group Street Drum Corps), engineered by Chris Baseford (renowned Canadian born engineer/mixer who routinely works with some of the top names in the rock music world, including Motley Crue, Avril Lavigne, ZZ Top, Lynyrd Skynyrd), and recorded at the state of the art Atrium Studio (located in the Calabasas home of legendary Motley Crue drummer Tommy Lee). The band's latest record was mixed by the amazing Ryan Williams (30 Seconds to Mars, P!nk, Rage Against the Machine, Train). Hero For Today - EP 2013. Hero For Today released their self-titled debut EP in 2013. The record included four tracks mastered at the Grammy award winning Masterpiece London Studios - and they were instantly very well received. Hero For Today spent the past year playing venues and music festivals all across Southern California in support of their first record, including the Whisky-A-Go-Go, House of Blues (San Diego and Anaheim), the Glass House, Coach House, Chain Reaction, Queen Bees, Wild Wild Fest, Ranchofest, Rocktoberfest and many others). Hero for Today has built a great fan base and a reputation for playing super fun, energetic shows. Rocko, Sam, Eric and John want each of their fans to have the time of their life every time they come to a Hero For Today concert.

Over the past year, the boys kept writing and working on new material and they couldn't wait to get back into the studio to record some new songs! Hero For Today's new record has now been completed and is ready for release at this time. "This is the best music we've written and sonically the best music we've recorded. We are all very proud of these new songs and can't wait to release them to the world - and to take this band to next level!" -Hero For Today
