Tell Me Your History
You Don't Need A Reason
HILLSIDE HEROES BEGAN WHEN FOUR FRIENDS, WHO ALL SHARED A PASSION FOR WRITING AND PERFORMING, MERGED THEIR INDIVIDUAL STYLES TO CREATE A UNIQUE COMBINATION OF ENERGETIC, NO-NONSENSE INDIE AND HIGH-OCTANE SKA, WITH A TIGHT REGGAE FLAIR. A TRULY DISTINCTIVE SOUND.
SINCE THEN THE BAND - WHO ARE BASED IN CORNWALL - HAVE GONE FROM STRENGTH TO STRENGTH, REACHING THE FINALS OF THE HUB / HERALD BATTLE OF THE BANDS AND PERFORMING ALONGSIDE SUCH RESPECTED ACTS AS 'THE RIFLES,' 'TWO SPOT GOBI,' AND 'LOS ALBERTOS.' AFTER A SUCCESSFUL RELEASE OF THEIR NEW EP 'THE GOOD TIMES ARE KILLING ME,' - THE LAUNCH PARTY ITSELF HOSTING BOTH 'RED LIGHT COMPANY' AND 'HEY MOLLY' - THE HEROES HAVE BEEN BUSY BUILDING A SUPPORTIVE FAN BASE AND A SOUND REPUTATION ALL OVER THE SOUTHWEST, INCLUDING CROYDE, ST. IVES, DARTINGTON AND BRISTOL.
'The Rame Peninsula’s ultra-talented, ultra-catchy Hillside Heroes, pictured top, took first spot in the judges’ eyes. Job done.'
- Matt Fleming, Plymouth Herald
'Their appealing brand of indie, which offers a distillation of their widely varying influences packaged in cleverly-composed songs, is winning them huge respect on the city scene.'
- Clare Robinson, Music Critic
'Hillside Heroes kicked things off in such awesome style and set the standard so high it was almost impossible for the judges to choose a winner.'
- Christian Murison, Go2 Magazine
