HEYROCCO’S BRILLIANT FREE DOWNLOAD & DEBUT UK TOUR

HEYROCCO

Nate Merli (vocals and guitar), Christopher Cool (bass – and yes, that’s his real name!), and Taco Cooper (drums) first got together in a parent’s garage five years ago.

They quickly knew they were onto something, and – aiming to be the biggest, loudest rock band of their generation – they were just as quick to quit school and make it happen for real.

It’s a good job they did, because from the sounds of Virgin‘s wild melodies and cloudburst choruses, it looks like their hunch was right.

HEYROCCO’s first single from their forthcoming album Teenage Movie Soundtrack (due for release in March 2015) will be available as a free download (above) or here.

Like every good rock band, this South Carolina-bred trio’s dark pop tunes are about sex, rebellion and rock ’n’ roll.

They’re reminiscent of Mudhoney, Nada Surf, Dandy Warhols and Pavement; and they’ll sit right alongside Royal Blood, Drenge, Darlia and PEACE.

HEYROCCO will take their punchy, sprawling songs on a UK tour in October 2014.
