House of Heroes "Suburba" debuts in Top 50 of Billboard's 200 HOUSE OF HEROES' SUBURBA OUT NOW AND CHARTING AT 48 ON BILLBOARD TOP 200 AND 8 ON BILLBOARD DIGITAL SALES
“House Of Heroes have always flown under the radar. The group’s fourth full-length, Suburba, shows off what the masses have been missing: catchy pop songs with well-written lyrics…one of music’s hidden gems.” –Alternative Press
Gotee Records band House of Heroes recent release SUBURBA produced by Mark Lee Townsend (Relient K, Deas Vail) and mixed by J.R. McNeely (The Almost, Paramore) has an exciting first week of sales entering the Billboard’s Top 200 at #48 and Billboard’s Digital chart at #8.
“We're blown away by the support Suburba has received from critics and especially our fans! It really feels like we've got a lot of people in our corner this time around and a lot of people pulling for us to be successful with this release. There is a cool kinship we feel with the fans. Like we both have ownership over this thing, and that makes us feel responsible to work even harder to be on the road a lot and be a better band every day” – states frontman Tim Skipper
Suburba harkens back to days when music was wide eyed and meant a whole lot more. Think classic Bruce Springsteen and Tom Petty, The Who, E.L.O. with a touch of Meatloaf. Broad and anthemic at certain moments, yet vulnerable and intimate at others.
"Huge, exhilarating and fanciful, the album is a clear-cut favorite for end of the year lists, a true stud and stalwart; an instant album of the year candidate."
