...On The Other Side.

A blog kept by members of the rock band House of Heroes. Let's talk about all the things we like!

LOTS OF STUFF!!!

It’s been a while since we have checked in, so I thought we’d let you know a few things that we have going on here in House of Heroes world:

First and foremost, COLD HARD WANT came out a year ago today!!!  That is crazy to think about! Go give it a first anniversary listen today if you haven’t already ;) This means that we have officially fulfilled our contract with Gotee Records and for the first time in 8 or 9 years, we are an independent band!  That is crazy to think about. Time to get busy writing and get you guys some new music!!!

We are currently right in the middle of a post-Independence Day (For a Petty Thief) sale in our merch store! This week only, buy any t-shirt or tank top and get a Knock Down Drag Outs CD for FREE!!! You can also get a Cold Hard Want CD instead of KDDO. If that is what you want, just to to the “Contacts” section at the top of our merch store, and let us know that you’d rather have Cold Hard Want. And speaking of the merch store, we have exactly 9 Cold Hard Want vinyls left, so if you want one of those, you better stop your lollygagging!

Next, Tim and his wife, Stephanie (formerly Stephanie Smith, Gotee Records recording artist featured in the House of Heroes song, God Save the Foolish Kings) have started a band together (band name TBD)! They have a few shows booked in VA, and PA at the end of the month, and are looking to book a few more in the PA, OH, IN areas for July 30, 31, and August 1.  If you would like to see the new band (with a possible inclusion of Mr. Colin Rigsby himself playing some of his sweet acoustic jams), please hit up hohtour@gmail.com

Lastly, we have begun to take initial steps to print The End is Not the End on vinyl for the first time EVER!!!  It’s hard to believe that record came out 5 years ago, but I can’t think of a better 5 year anniversary celebration than to do a limited vinyl pressing for you guys!  We’ll keep you updated on how that is going.

Here are HOH dates coming up next month:

August 8 - Canton, OH @ The Auricle. Tickets HERE

August 9 - Cincinnati, OH @ The 86 Club. 

August 10 - Westerville, OH @ Westerville Christian Church for BISH BASH! Ticket info coming soon.

As always, hit us up at hohtour@gmail.com with any and all booking inquiries.  Love you guys!  Speak soon!

Our own Mr. Colin Rigsby designed a poster for the tour:  

Since it’s called “THE KNOCK-DOWN DRAG-OUTS TOUR” we will be playing a few b-sides from that album.  This is where we need some help from you guys.  What are your favorite songs that you would like to hear us do live from TKDDO???

Last but not least, we have BADLY ignored our online store and I know it has frustrated the pants off some of you guys!  Well, I’m happy to say that we are very close to having it up and running better than ever very soon!  Thanks for your patience there.  Love you guys!  Speak soon.
