With their humble beginnings and formation in Hilliard, OH, House of Heroes released their debut album, What you Want is Now, in 2003 and soon landed on Gotee records. Their third album, The End is Not the End, put House of Heroes on the map with critical claim and charting spots in the Billboard Christian and Heatseaker charts. Follow up album, Suburba, saw the band enter the Billboard 200 charts at number 48.
For House of Heroes’ latest record, the band founds themselves newly independent and willing to take a step out on their own. A successful crowd-funding campaign raised over $55,000 to produce Colors, a concept record which follows the lives of a few characters as they deal with failed dreams, freedom, and redemption. After the album was completed, House of Heroes teamed up with record label, Bad Christian, to put out the record. Colors was released June 2016.
As the band finds themselves more spread out and exploring other opportunities, touring and shows have started to slow. But with no plans to wind down on the song-writing side, a hometown banger at Independents’ Day is a not to be missed set for a band who’s been grinding it out for over a decade.
