House of Heroes

“It sounds like Space Cowboys in a fight with…” Sadly, I cut House of Heroes vocalist Tim Skipper off before he could reveal to the world what Space Cowboys fight against.  

When HOH released their debut in 2005, they were a band to keep an eye on.  Three years later, they have met that potential (and racked up one million plays on myspace) with The End is Not The End, a very ambitious 15 song album that’s a notable step forward, not just for this band, but for rock music in general.  I caught up with the guys before their show in the South suburbs of Chicago.  Check out my flip camera videos and see why this album took so long to make (it’s been almost five years since their debut), why the lyrics are about World War 2, Monsters, and Communism (and how they tie into old testament Bible passages), and what an “epic pool party” is.  

Part 1 (Meet the band, what PBS had to do with the album)

Part 2 (“basically, the theme is ‘a man can change his stars’…’The song is about the Canadian Army'”)

Part 3 (on fan loyalty in the fickle myspace age)

tower, 25, can be heard on 89.7 Shine.FM in Chicago, and 101.7 FUSE FM in Saginaw, Michigan. He wants you to know that REAL Chicagoans are Sox fans.
